Interested in joining our team of tutors at Up Your Grade?

Up Your Grade provides excellent academic tutors for students in a number of areas across the United Kingdom. We are looking for experienced, professional and successful tutors who are passionate about their subject and can communicate effectively with learners. Our tutors must be able to motivate, build student’s confidence and explain difficult concepts or ideas patiently, in a variety of ways. We have lots of opportunities for the right tutors and a get a range of exciting tutor enquiries on a regular basis for the whole spectrum of student ability and ages. We value our tutors and work hard to ensure they are happy, feel supported and are in regular contact with them.

Do you want to join us and make a difference to the grades of the students we look after and their future success? Registering your details is FREE of charge and there is no obligation to accept students through Up Your Grade.

Many of our tutors indeed have other ways of finding students themselves but can rely on us for getting opportunities they would not have received otherwise. Once you have registered we will contact you and arrange a meeting in person or Skype call to assess your suitability and make appropriate academic reference and safe-guarding DBS (Disclosure and Baring) checks. If you have the necessary academic and personal skills but not the vital DBS certificate we can process searches through Atlantic Data Ltd, an independent company which runs the checks on Up Your Grade’s behalf. The fee for this is currently £56.24 and Up Your Grade Tutors makes no profit for assisting in these checks. We also check all current DBS certificates through the government run DBS Update Service Portal, which we have an annual subscription to.
