What Is a Private Tutor?

A private tutor is an employee of a student or family who may specialize in teaching one subject, such as language, math, or writing, but may also provide instruction for a variety of subjects, especially if the student is of high school age or younger. As a private tutor, your responsibilities include giving one-on-one lessons with the goal of strengthening the student’s understanding of what is being taught in school or furthering their education in other areas. You may be hired to help them prepare for an exam such as the ACT or SAT. Your duties include identifying the areas your students have the most difficulty with and preparing lessons accordingly, as well as assigning and correcting homework. In this role, you’re typically expected to discuss the student’s progress with their parents. Private tutors may also be hired by adults who need extra help in preparing for various exams or certifications, for example, for higher education subjects or advancement in their career.
