What we can offer:
Westminster Tutors is independent sixth form college based in South Kensington. We have a longstanding reputation for academic excellence and our teachers - despite the informal atmosphere in the college - inevitably command the respect of their students. Our students are mature and committed with exemplary behaviour, and staff morale is high.
The college's reputation has always been built upon our teachers and they remain our greatest asset today. Established in 1934, we remain close to our tutorial college origins and teach almost entirely at A level with much of that teaching continuing to be one-to-one. This means the administrative burden (record keeping, marking, bureaucracy) is much lower; while job satisfaction is very high.
Our teachers are instrumental in the academic progress their individual students make and have the satisfaction of knowing they really do make a difference. The success of our approach is also born out by our results (A level progress/ results/ university destinations) and we outstrip our competitors by a long measure.
We are able to offer our part-time tutors very flexible timetables according to their other commitments. Many of our part-time staff are also working on PhDs, or are actors, musicians, artists and writers. Others have had high-powered careers in business, education or post doctoral research and now wish to teach part-time in a rewarding and stimulating environment.
The diversity and range of accomplishments amongst our teachers all contribute to the unique atmosphere at Westminster Tutors and provide a source of inspiration for our students.
What we are looking for:
We are looking for an Economics tutor (part-time/ paid hourly) to join our team.
The successful candidate will ideally be a qualified teacher, although this is not a requirement. We place far greater importance on you having strong academic credentials and require a good degree/ postgraduate degree in Economics or a closely related subject, as well as a proven ability to engage and inspire students aged 16+.
Our students have a very broad range of ability. Additional experience preparing students for PPE, TSA and highly competitive UCAS applications would be an advantage. Additionally, experience teaching A level students with SEND including specific learning difficulties and on the autism spectrum would also be an advantage, as would experience teaching related subjects such as Business A Level.
We are small, safe and socially distanced because we do almost all of our teaching one-to-one. Our approach also means that we can seamlessly move to teaching online if required.
We have had 99% participation from staff and students to twice-weekly lateral flow testing, and our current staff say that they have found our covid procedures very reassuring.
If this sounds like the job for you we would love to hear from you as soon as possible!
