“I find simultaneously working with AoS and studying teaching the perfect combination – it has allowed me to really practice teaching my subject matter, build up my self-efficacy as an educator, and accumulate a repertoire of practices that I will be able to take with me into my future career as a teacher!”

Senior Academic Coach, Art of Smart Education
“Helping a student is one of the most satisfying experiences you’ll have in your life, it’s better than making a sandwich at Subway, or mixing drinks at a bar, you are actively engaging in the growth of another peer. This isn’t one of those brain numbing jobs where you sit around and perform repetitive actions, it’s a job that changes dynamically. You’re helping them through hurdles not only in their academic life, but their social life as well.”

A Proven Academic Track Record
First and foremost, to be a great tutor you need to know your stuff, and that’s why we look for a proven academic track record. We take into account your ATAR, university results, whether you’ve completed an undergraduate degree or are completing a teaching degree!
Clear Communication Skills
While having strong academic credentials is important, it’s even more important to be able to communicate clearly – and that’s why we look for exceptional communicators skills. In our interview you’ll need to teach us a micro-lesson so we can best understand how you communicate!
A Role Model for Students
Great tutors go beyond teaching the syllabus content and this is a key part of our holistic approach as all our tutors provide mentoring for our students.
As a result we look for role models for students – so while a proven academic track record is important we also look for tutors who have life experience, from playing sport or musical instruments, travelling, speaking multiple languages, volunteering and more!
Driver’s Licence & Mobility
We provide 1 on 1 tutoring and mentoring in the comfort of a student’s home – this means that there’s some travel involved in the role.
We work to ensure that work with students is in local areas for our tutors, however having a driver’s license and mobility through access to a car makes things easier for everyone!
Passionate About Working with Young People
A great tutor motivates and inspires their students to want to learn, to want to excel, to stretch and to achieve their goals.
And that’s why being passionate about working with young people and teaching is critical – if you’re not passionate it’s very difficult to motivate and inspire someone else! As a result we look for people who are passionate about inspiring young people to achieve their best!
