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

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.

Up Your Grade personally recommends experienced academic tutors to help Primary, GCSE and A-Level students in Harrogate and across Yorkshire. We are looking for professional and successful teachers and tutors who are passionate about their specialist subject. Our tutors need to be great at motivating their students, building confidence and guiding them through all the subject’s topics so they are ready to do the best they can. We have lots of opportunities for the right teachers and we can offer a wide range of interesting enquiries for the whole spectrum of abilities and ages.

All our tutors work through us on a self-employed basis and we collect a monthly commission payment for students you see through us. We use a quick and easy to use online admin system to process and record all our tuition sessions and commission payments. We value our tutors and work hard to ensure they are happy, feel supported and keep in regular contact with them.

Some of our tutors indeed have other ways of finding students themselves but can rely on us for getting additional opportunities they would not have received otherwise. We always arrange a meeting in person to assess tutor suitability and make appropriate academic reference and safe-guarding DBS (Disclosure and Baring) checks. We also check all current DBS certificates through the government run DBS Update Service Portal, which we have an annual subscription to.

We look forward to hearing from you!
