AMG is an equal opportunities employer.
The AMG management team try very hard to be human in our daily interactions with our front-line team of tutors. That means that we try to be as flexible to the needs of our tutors as we would hope a manager would be with us. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. AMG management tries to work with each tutor to address concerns and worries as they arise, and consequently, we have some very positive feedback from our staff:
(Insert staff testimonials here.)
Sometimes, life as a tutor can be very tough. There are periods when the timetable seems unforgiving and the rewards minimal. AMG managers recognise this. Indeed, the senior manager is an AMG tutor herself and understands how hard it is to achieve a work/life balance. This is why the AMG week is structured the way it is. The following will show you what to expect as a tutor at AMG:
The Working Year at AMG
The working year is split into ‘term-times’, UK boarding school holiday times aka ‘busy periods’ and ‘slack periods’. This graph shows roughly the ratio of ‘term-times’ to ‘busy periods’. Clearly, there are spikes of extreme business for popular tutors when their students return from the UK schools for top-up tuition.
The ‘slack period’ is at the end of June and in the first week of July (before the UK schools have broken up). This slack period is where we recommend that our staff take a long and well-earned break. Their students have completed their public examinations, and the demand for tuition naturally falls off.
