How to Become a Tutor for Distance Learning Centers

Become A Tutor for Distance Learning Centers
If you would like to be a tutor for a distance learning center, you can begin your search by looking for institutions which offer classes by correspondence, and then look over their application process to learn how to be a tutor with their agency.
Many schools offer distance learning options for their students. These distance learning centers hire tutors to assist in marking papers, giving tutoring help to students by email or phone, and even live in person through webcam.

A distance learning center may be a high school, college or university. There are also some virtual schools which are online education only. Search for schools in your area and then broaden your scope to schools in your country. (Some educational institutions only hire tutors who dwell in the same country of origin.)

It is worth the effort to contact as many distance learning centers as you can if you are interested in this type of tutoring. Not all distance learning centers require their tutors to hold an education degree. However, be prepared to show that you have the skills/experience to apply for a tutoring position. You may need to demonstrate these skills by completing a tutoring exam. This exam will test you on your ability to mark a student's work, and explain how to solve a problem.

You have nothing to lose by exploring this option. In fact, this can be a very satisfying mode of tutoring. You don't have to worry about no-shows, nor about collecting your pay. You are given all the necessary materials, and you set specific tutoring hours which can work within your schedule.

Your search will involve the following aspects: Identify possible institutions which offer distance learning, locate their website, and look for an employment or job opportunities tab. Click on that and see what positions they may be advertising. Even if tutors are not on that list, it is worthwhile to contact the institution and let them know you are interested in becoming a distance learning tutor. They may refer to it by a different name; check out their site before you phone or email them and see what name they are using for that position.

In your contact with the institution, let them know that if they are not hiring at the current time, you would be interested in finding out the next time they are hiring.

Keep a list of institutions you have contacted and what the results were. Refer to that list to determine whether someone needs a call back, when their next hiring blitz is on, etc. This is all useful information, and may help you land that job you want.

Often, competitions to hire distance learning tutors become available yearly; sometimes they are in need of a tutor to fill a position due to a maternity leave or other health problem. You may get hired on a contract basis to fill a temporary need, or get hired on a more permanent basis if you are interested in making this more of a full-time job for yourself.

Remember to come across with enthusiasm and confidence, but not with too much pride. First impressions really are important.
