The Tutor Pages (www.thetutorpages.com) has recently been founded by Christ Church alumnus Henry Fagg (2001). It's an online directory of private tutors with a difference: each tutor has submitted one or more articles on their expertise. This not only helps parents and students decide who to hire, but also makes the site a fascinating one to browse.
For example, there are articles ranging from 'How to Prepare Your Child for a Selective School' and 'Learning Latin GCSE Vocabularly', to 'A Buyer's Guide to British Harpsichord Makers' and 'How to Approach Beethoven'sMoonlight Sonata (1st mvmt)'.
The website also includes a comprehensive e-book for anyone considering becoming a private tutor, which has recently been featured in the Times Educational Supplement 'Masterclass' series. The e-book advises on all matters related to private tuition, such as who is eligible to tutor in the UK, how to understand self-employed tax, whether you need to be insured, how to stay safe and how to promote yourself. It also contains a wealth of resources and advice on effective teaching.
