How to write your tutor CV

Before you begin writing, make sure you know how to write a CV in a way that best emphasises your strengths.

Are you a passionate tutor looking to assist students in reaching their academic goals? To secure a job, you’ll need to make a CV that proves you can create engaging, challenging lesson plans that help your students improve their marks.

1. Write an attention-grabbing personal statement

Your personal statement should quickly get the employer interested by creating a connection between your skills and their needs.

Here’s a good example of a personal statement that effectively highlights the candidate’s best qualities as a tutor by giving an overview of their professional background:

You’ll need a mix of hard skills (technical abilities acquired through training) and soft skills (professional personality traits) to secure a job as a tutor.

Highlight your skills throughout your CV, from your personal statement to your skills section, to convince employers that you’re a competent educator.

Below are a few skills that look great on a tutor CV:

3. Quantify your achievements

The more detail your work experience section provides, the better. Specific examples are more impactful than generic ones because they lend credibility to your statements while also showing employers and families what you can help students achieve if hired.

Not sure how to quantify your bullet points? Here are a few ideas to help you get started:

  • Mention how many students you taught
  • Specify by how much you helped students raise their grades on average
  • Show the percentage of students and parents who were satisfied with your tutoring
  • Provide details on how many students you successfully helped pass their exams

To further strengthen your tutoring CV, start your bullet points with strong action verbs.

Here’s a great example of a work experience bullet point on a tutor CV::
