Private English Tutor Resume Sample

The authenticity and relevance of the information that you put on a resume hold a lot of importance.

For instance, if you are applying for a private tutor position but are in actuality a teacher by profession (yes, there is a difference), your resume will probably reflect your expertise as a teacher.

And this is not what the employer is looking for. If he has advertised for a tutor position, he is looking for precisely that – a tutor, and not a teacher!

Although, it is alright to put in some information of a time that you worked as a teacher as well!

Here is a sample resume for a private English tutor position to assist you in this regard.
