What could I do for one days pay?

I'm looking at a job change in a different school which is 0.6 timetable. I currently teach 0.8 but love the look of this job and the school. I would need to do something to make up at least some of the pay difference, but what? The school said that they occasionally use supply but obviously that's not guaranteed on a weekly basis. It doesn't have to be related to teaching really but I could only do one day.

121 tutoring?

I could but that would mean evenings wouldn't it? Where do I start for tutoring?

Just do supply elsewhere. There is absolutely loads. Terrifyingly.

You could do online tutoring during the day. I have a 0.6 teaching contract and I usually tutor 2 or 3 mornings a week (Thurs-Sat) from 9.30 to 1pm (hours are flexible) The children are all based in China, lesson materials are supplied (usually PowerPoints) and they pay £11 for a 30 minute lesson. I think it's totally stress free!

Are you a secondary teacher? If so, how about exam marking? It's boring and not very well paid but I'd much rather work hard for a few weeks in the summer term and get a lump of cash than tutor every week all year round. It's usually possible to mark 2 exams in the summer, it wouldn't completely top up your money but that and a bit of supply might be enough to get you through.

No I'm primary, and round here supply isn't great as most schools just use their hltas instead, unless they need long term sick cover.
I've read some things about China tutoring- it does sound interesting?

That sounds interesting. Are you with a particular agency/school? Would you be able to share any details by PM?

There is absolutely none available around here and the FB supply teacher page echoes this. Schools are using HLTAs as they simply don’t have the money to pay for supply.

Holidayshopping - I've sent you a PM with some info. smile

No supply work here either, it's all done by TAs even when long term

TwoScottieDogs please could you send me some information too? I have been working pt but I have two children with SEN and they are not coping with childcare so I have handed my resignation in. We all just need to get through the summer term but then I need a job just whilst they are at school.

MrsKrabbapple Fri 19-Apr-19 23:13:17

Wow, there is a lot of supply where I am. I get calls even when I’m down not to work. I work for an agency.

gleegeek Fri 19-Apr-19 23:22:10

Twoscottiedogs - could you send me the China info too please? I've not been able to teach due to ill health but could manage online I'm sure

Tutoring? Get in touch with a referral unit maybe, for daytime work, or some home Ed groups.

TwoScottieDogs Fri 19-Apr-19 23:26:34

Lifeisachalkenge & gleegeek - not sure how to send PM's from the app but will PM you tomorrow when I'm on my laptop. smile

I know people who've got a lot of tutoring in the day from children who are home schooled- so doesn't have to be evenings

piefacedClique Fri 19-Apr-19 23:33:51

Am I have the online tutoring info too? I’m a secondary teacher and I’ve dropped to being a cover supervisor.... so much easier and the pay per day is really good. I’m based on one school.

piefacedClique Fri 19-Apr-19 23:34:19

Sorry! Can I! Bloody tiny keyboard! Thank you x

babyboo1and2 Sat 20-Apr-19 00:03:36

TwoScottieDogs, could I also have details of the online tutoring too. Thank you.

Devondreamer Sat 20-Apr-19 00:12:16

TwoScottieDogs please may I also have the China online tutoring details? Thank you.

TwoScottieDogs Sat 20-Apr-19 17:33:04

I think I've PM'd everyone that asked, but message me if not!

NorthernKnickers Mon 22-Apr-19 22:41:08

I'd appreciate this information too, if you could message me when you have a minute! Thanks 🙏

NorthernKnickers Tue 23-Apr-19 20:03:16

Oh I should have tagged @TwoScottieDogs ! Apologies 😳

TwoScottieDogs Tue 23-Apr-19 20:11:04

Northernknickers - I PM'd you this morning. Hope you got it. smile
