Are you one of those people who gets really productive during the evenings. If you’re a student, this might apply to you! We’ve found a job that could be right up your alley. And it pays very well…
An online tutoring platform has launched a late-night tutoring service for students who are more productive during the night, and is recruiting tutors to deliver the service.
Tutor House has launched ‘Out of hours’ tutoring to offer additional academic support to students who work better during ‘unsociable hours’. ‘Out of hours’ tutors can expect to earn up to £75 an hour in compensation for working late in the evening or during the night.
Tutoring sessions will follow a regular format and can take place at your home or even in another pre-approved and appropreiate late-night establishment, such as the Student Union bar or local fast food restaurant.
‘Out of hours’ tutoring sessions can run at anytime outside of regular university hours and are expected to cost £75 due to the unsocial hours. Sessions can also be conducted remotely via video call for £45 an hour.
Alex Dyer, founder of Tutor House said,
“There is a huge amount of pressure on young adults nowadays, but there just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to fit everything in. We know that different people are more productive at different times of the day, so we hope that this service will be the answer for night owls!
“Of course, we’re playing into the stereotype of the typical student here, but we really like to take pride in helping students thrive in any way we can – whether this is with the subject matter we tutor, where we provide our support or now, even what time we do it!”
Tutor House surveyed 2,345 of their customers to find out their preferred study times, and found that almost a third (29%) of students prefer to study past 9pm, with more than a tenth (12%) studying past 2am!
The survey also found that 17% of respondents are most productive between 3-5am, and almost half (43%) nap between 7pm and 10pm to then work for the next 4 hours.
This brings back a lot of memories about our time at university we can tell you that much. It’s nice to know that you’re not the only one staying up way too late to get that essay handed in on time. Productivity just happens…when it happens…
