3. How to Write an English Tutor Resume
The process of writing a teacher resume is simple and easy. Take your time to go through all of this resource.
1. Career Objective: The basic rule of thumb with a career objective is that it should be no longer than two sentences, and should be targeted at showing how your skills and qualifications make you the ideal candidate for fulfilling your client’s needs.
In other words, “your” career objective is really about THEIR career objective.
A hiring manager can immediately grasp if this person is qualified or not, giving them a much higher chance of being interviewed. Not satisfied? Here’s even more information about how to write a career objective.
2. Professional Experience: If you wrote a great career objective and have hooked the hiring manager, this professional experience section is where you can blow them out of the water.
The most important thing to remember about this section is that each description you write should begin with a verb phrase, followed by duties and tasks you performed at your job. Need more help? Follow these two resume writing tips to land more interviews.
Here’s an example of an Elementary Tutor resume:
PEORIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Peoria, IL
Elementary Tutor September 1998 – Present
- Tutored 130+ students in mathematics, reading, science, history, social studies and, spelling.
- Created games and alternative methods of tutoring to keep the students interested in the subjects.
- Tutored students who were at risk of failing, struggled with a subject, or had a learning disability.
- Helped students raise their grades and test scores by 85%, giving them the self confidence to achieve.
- Gave practice tests and showed students alternatives to better study habits.
Try to frame these duties and tasks in the form of achievements. For instance, if you taught math to five different classes, by how much did their standardized test scores rise as a result as a result of your efforts?
Try to identify areas where your ideas helped improve efficiency, time management, saved money, increased brand recognition, and/or helped students learn better. This is the kind of meat hiring managers love to chew on, and will cause them to jump at the chance to interview you.
3. Education Section: The education section is very straightforward, though it can’t hurt to read through these tips first. As a teacher, it’s highly likely that you’ve attended college and received a degree in education, probably in a specific field like early education, special education, physical education, etc. Definitely include this information on your resume.
If you have just graduated, and are currently engaged in or completed your field work, this section should be ABOVE the professional experience section. You should include information about how much field work you finished, and where you did it.
Extra-curricular activities are also fair to mention, if you don’t have much professional experience. Being active is an important part of being a teacher, so this can help you pick up an interview.
4. Skills, Certifications, and Licenses: Most states and teaching positions require that you have a teaching license or postgraduate certificates. We’ve included a picture below to give you an idea about how to format these sections.
We highlighted the CPR certification because although it’s not directly relevant to teaching, it’s still a certification that is worth mentioning on this kind of resume. The other skills have been placed into their own section, because although they are useful and important for attracting the attention of a hiring manager, they are nonetheless not as important as the actual certifications you have for teaching.
And that, my friend, is how to write an education and training resume. Please take a look at our resume builder if you need help putting it together!
4. What Teachers Don’t Say
After you’ve got through your resume, finished your cover letter, contacted schools for an interview, prepared for the interview, sent a follow up letter and eventually got the job. Your challenging yet rewarding journey as a teacher, trainer or educator has only just begun.
