A variety of institutions employ English tutors. Schools all over the world are the most common employers of English tutors, for both classroom and private tutoring. Businesses outside English-speaking countries often hire English tutors to assist employees in learning English to facilitate growth into English speaking markets. English tutors also work freelance for individuals who wish to improve their English skills, or for families who wish to educate their children, or the whole family, in English.
For all job types, the tasks are relatively the same, save for a few exceptions when tutoring a whole class. There are two components to tutoring: writing and speaking. English tutors clarify and answer questions students have regarding their written English. Tutors also edit, comment on, and provide constructive criticism regarding students’ written work. Where speaking is concerned, tutors must speak clearly and enunciate for the benefit of the student while maintaining a natural and conversational tone, especially with beginners. Equally important, as an English tutor you must actively create a trusting atmosphere for your students.
