Very Flexible

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great job if you want something to fit around commitments such as uni. Can choose what clients you take on. Pay not the highest in the industry but still ok

Great part-time work

Fantastic and flexible hours, completely decided by yourself. Brilliant online log system to track progress and working hours. Only thing I would say is that it is not a job you can do solely. It is fantastic part time to earn extra money and pays really well per hour, however unless you have a lot of students to teach in the same area, it can be difficult to gain enough hours per week.

Decent pay and good management

My managers and admins get back to me promptly to answer any queries, they take into consideration travel and the pay is pretty good. Id like to take more work with them.

Reliable Company

I work parttime for this company. So there is not as much interaction as if I was full time. They have a very good online set up which makes it easy to match with your students

Good place to work but, need more support for the tutors

Tutor Doctor is a good place to work in general, respectful atmosphere and helpful admin team. They need to provide more support (training, materials.. Etc) specially for first time tutors!! Or for tutors who aren't from teaching background. Also the salary is low after you deduct the petrol and the tax you will be left with less than £5 / an hour!!!

flexible job

works well around other commitments, but it would be great to have more job opportunities during the day as the jobs on offer are limited to the hours after 4:30 p.m.


you are in charge of how much you want to work

flexible working hours

You teach your lessons to students and after you finish you write session reports. It is easy to get help by emailing tutor doctor if you get stuck with anything. Tutor doctor finds the clients for you so you don't need to find them by yourself. You are in charge of what you teach so working with children can be fun and rewarding. The working hours are flexible so you get to choose when you want to work.

Can be rewarding

Very pleasant management, I just did not get anything like enough work. Also, tutor sessions can be cancelled or ended at very short notice, very unreliable. I really enjoyed the actual tutoring which can be quite rewarding.


job satisfaction - not a bad culture


hardly any work

Flexible and friendly

More flexible and friendly than many other agencies out there. I only have minimum hours but good to build up confidence. Enjoy the variety. Most challenging part is coming up with lessons and resources. Good that they have a local focus.




Not enough hours available

Adaptable, independent and fun

A great company to work for, provided students and personalised them to your teaching styles. The manager of the West Midlands branch was helpful and supportive.

Wonderful Experience as a Tutor

I found 'Tutor Doctor' very organised and convenient for both the tutors and the students in almost every aspect. The management team has been very friendly yet professional. I would highly recommend 'Tutor Doctor' to both the students and tutors.


Flexibilty & Good Pay Rates


No compensation for the missed appointments (by students)

Efficent private tutor agency

I work as a private tutor through Tutor Doctor a couple of hours per day. Their booking system is really good, although you do have to chase the office up sometimes if you're available for a job posted on their system, and they occasionally don't bother to get back to you if your application to work for that client wasn't successful. I like not having to deal with payment from clients, although I do think that the agency commission is too high (they take over 60% from most of their tutors, so if the hourly rate is £50, we get less than £20). Overall, though, they're efficient, friendly and have a good market presence.


Efficient, friendly, good market presence

Tutor Doctor.

Overall, a good experience working for this organisation. The work initially, was fairly consistent and working for them inspired me to take on some additional work with a range of EAL students.


Flexible work.


Online system not always available to carry out admin duties.

you are your own boss

I organize myself in preparing the classes, and I really enjoy teaching other what I know. The best reward is to know that both of them achieved the grades wanted, and therefore they could continue their education.

Great fun teaching Psychology

In a typical day, I teach AS level & A2 level Psychology to students in the comfort of their own homes. I follow the AQA syllabus and teach every unit effectively and with passion. I use innovative strategies and resources for each lesson, so that students get a feel of different learning strategies.I learnt that students learn better if I keep my lessons interactive throughout. I manage my resources effectively, such as teaching using the internet, text books and past exam papers. I have one co-worker who I work with, and who I update about all my students after each lesson using an electronic device (i.e. laptop) through Tutor Doctor email. He is very supportive and approachable.The hardest part of my job is fitting in time to teach privately around my daily supply teaching job. I very much enjoy teaching Psychology, and gives me great satisfaction in passing on my subject knowledge to students.


enhances my subject knowledge.


work unsociable hours.
