Job Description – Tutor – Newbury Hall (pdf).

Person Specification

Qualifications & Experience: Applicants should have either a degree or high A-level grades, previous experience and/or a TESOL certificate; all or any of these would support an application. A sound knowledge of English and good general academic skills (essay writing, critical thinking, etc) would also support a candidate’s application, as well as an ability to teach exam courses or subjects from a CLIL perspective.

Interview discussions will involve opportunities for candidates to describe how they might teach certain activities and/or topics, but without teaching a model lesson; to demonstrate their friendliness and potential for engaging with and inspiring our students; and to explain their interest in educating young people. There will be no written assessment at interview.

A variety of subjects are taught at different times throughout the year, some for personal interest, some towards exams, so tutors of all subjects as well as English as a foreign language are required.

A sound knowledge of English and good general academic skills (essay writing, critical thinking, etc) would support a candidate’s application.

Competencies & Qualities: Teaching roles at Newbury Hall are far more akin to small-group or 1:1 tutoring than teaching and our positions would suit an enthusiastic newcomer to the profession as much as a more experienced candidate. Interview discussions will involve opportunities for candidates to describe how they might teach certain activities and/or topics, but without teaching a model lesson; to demonstrate their friendliness and potential for engaging with and inspiring our students; and to explain their interest in educating young people.
