Why not find an affordable and capable young person to help your child with their core subjects?
This past year has had a big impact on children’s education. Do you think your child would benefit from some extra support? We have a wide range of brilliant young people on our Teen Tutors programme eager to help. We offer lessons at all Key Stages in Maths, English, Science, History, Geography, and many more.
Finding the right person to guide and support your child can be difficult. We aim to make that process quick and easy through our bespoke matching service. Whether you need targeted subject tutoring or general homework help, our intelligent and relatable young people have often taken the same exams recently themselves and are on hand to help. Regular sessions can be booked at rates starting at £5 for 45 minutes. All our classes are currently offered via video conference and we’ll offer live lessons as soon as we can.
Why hire a young person?
MyPocketSkill is a social impact company. We are passionate about helping young people to gain experience in the world of work and to become more financially capable. By using our platform you are helping us in that mission.
Our young people are highly enthusiastic, hardworking and personable. To sign up to MyPocketSkill, they are required to go through a screening and onboarding process. We also use a system of levels, based on age, experience and re-bookings, to help you choose.
How do I book a lesson?
Our lessons are available both online or offline. The process of booking a lesson is simple. Just get in contact with a tutor of your choice, or accept requests from young people who have contacted you, organise a time, date and session format you would like - whether it be a one-off-session or multiple sessions - and make booking. You can select different tutors based on their reviews, their profile and their listings.
How to hire the best tutor?
A few tips for selecting a tutor.
- Read through their profile: our young people have robust personal stories and experiences to share and they often write about this on their profile. Select a profile which you believe is relatable to your child and with the skill sets which fit your requirements.
- Read their reviews: our more experienced tutors often have reviews given by their past customers. Having more positive reviews are generally an indication of professional behaviour and that they have provided positive experiences to past clients.
- Make a trial booking. It’s not expensive to book a tutor on MyPocketSkill. Booking an initial single lesson with one or more tutors can be a great way to understand whether it’s likely to be a fit. Once you have found a tutor that works for you, it’s possible to make block bookings on MyPocketSkill, which many customers find more convenient.
How does payment work?
Payment is managed through the MyPocketSkill platform. Our community managers work hard to ensure a good, fair and equitable experience is had by both our clients and the young people on our platform. If you have any concerns during our lesson booking process, get in contact with our team, via message or online chat, and we can assist.
