Written by Julia Silver, Love Tutoring: Turning your Plan B into your Plan A is a practical guide to professional development that accompanies the Qualification for Tutors four-part online seminar – the only CPD accredited training for tutors. Combining theory and practice, this book promises to provide tutors with the skills, knowledge and context to tutor more, and better.

The roll out of the government’s National Tutoring Programme has brought tutoring into the spotlight. Over the last decade, a quarter of all 11–16-year-olds have received private tuition in England and Wales (rising to 42% in London). Coined by the Sutton Trust as ‘shadow schooling’, tutoring has become a flexible, meaningful career choice for educators.

Love Tutoring is a vision for how tutoring could be professionalised and democratised, making it more accessible to all students. The more, and better qualified, tutors we have, the more of our young people will benefit. Written by an experienced tutor and school-leader, this book will therefore give tutors the guidance, the encouragement and the inspiration to be the kind that every student remembers.

A direct response to edtech, industrialised education and to the rapidly changing job market, Julia’s book shares an enthusiastic and enabling vision for the future of tutoring as a powerful and effective space in the educational landscape. No matter the subject specialism, age or level of expertise, tutors have a number of common traits: they’re enthusiastic, academically able and willing to engage. Backed up by real life examples and interviews from working tutors, this book offers a broad insight into tutoring and explores the many different ways to tutor more effectively.

Suitable for tutors of all ages, subjects and levels of expertise, as well as interested parents, agencies, schools or other organisations who employ tutors.
