Is PLYTIME Tutoring right for you?
Would you like to control your own work-life balance?
Being a PLYTIME Tutor gives you the flexibility to determine when, where and for how long you work.
Do you have a desire to make a difference and help children reach their potential?
The reason why PLYTIME exists is to help primary age children build confidence and give them the tools needed to reach their potential in maths. To be successful you need to share that desire to make a difference
Do you enjoy playing games?
It probably goes without saying but PLYTIME is all about learning through playing competitive multi-player games – so in order for you to run effective sessions, it’s important that you enjoy playing face to face games.
Do you have a good grasp of basic maths?
Our aim is to improve primary level maths, so for you to be able to help children you need to have a good grasp of basic maths and numeracy. You must have a good GCSE grade as a minimum. We can offer training and tips but the real skill of a great Tutor is the ability to think on your feet so you can offer the right assistance at the right time.
Do you think you can tutor?
In addition to enjoyment of games and a good grasp of maths, PLYTIME Tutors need the ability to communicate different ideas and concepts to the children. You need patience, flexibility to look for different ways to help and the ability to encourage children to develop a “can-do” attitude. Whilst teaching experience would be an advantage, it is not essential.
Would you like to be part of a supportive network of tutors?
As a member of the PLYTIME Network, you are not on your own. If you have questions, issues or suggestions – whether it’s about tutoring, new games options, or even the weather – the PLYTIME Network is there to help
Do you have or are you willing to get an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check?
Whilst it isn’t a legal requirement for Tutors to have a DBS check, as you will be working with children we believe it’s an important requirement. All PLYTIME Tutors are required to go through this process
Do you have good access to and computer and the internet?
Many activities associated with PLYTIME take place online so it is important to have good access to a computer and a strong internet connection
