So you’ve made it to the interview stage - that’s exciting news! Before this takes place, however, please make sure you’ve carefully read through this guide to make sure that all is ready for your interview.
Test the Online Lesson Space to make sure that you are set up correctly. You will need:
- A working webcam
- Earphones with a mic (if you are on a Mac try to use non-Apple earphones as these can cause echo!)
- A good internet connection
Firstly, please check that your interview time slot shows up on your profile. If it doesn’t, give us a call on 0203 773 6020 during office hours (Mon - Thurs 8am-7pm, Fri 8am-5.30pm, Sat 10am-2pm, Sun 1pm-5pm ) and we’ll sort it out for you.
Please report any issues as soon as you notice them so that we can resolve them swiftly and your interview can go ahead as planned.
You interview link will become active at midnight on the scheduled date so you can test if everything’s fine before the start time.

Next, let's look at the device you are using. Please select from the list below:
Finally, when uploading a Q&A, please bear in mind that they will be submitted for approval. This means that they will not be visible on your profile until they have been reviewed by a member of our team and approved. You can proceed to your interview without the Q&A displaying on your profile as you can present this during the interview in the lesson space.
We like to make sure that our tutors are well motivated, strong communicators and can articulate concepts well. In the interview we will ask you to explain a sample question in your subject field to get a sense of your teaching style, as well as asking a few more general questions relating to tutoring. You can view examples of previous answers for inspiration. We will also have the opportunity to run through how MyTutor works and ensure that any questions you may have are answered. All our interviewers started out as tutors too, so it's a great opportunity for you to ask any questions.
