Why this resume works

  • Pack your resume from top to bottom with detailed work experience.
    • Try to fill the entire page with information, but make sure it's easy to read. 
      • Highlight your most relevant two to three work experience histories, utilizing bullet points to break them into digestible chunks. 
  • It's expected that you will list your previous job experience in a clear, easy-to-read resume format such as reverse-chronological order.
    • Again, bullet points help employers glean the most important information quickly.
    • Make each bullet point concise, and avoid using unnatural language that might seem pretentious or hard to read. 
  • Your tutor resume should be an excellent example of consistency.
    • The language in the work experience section should be in past tense and maintain consistent punctuation (all bullets end with periods or none at all). 
    • Remember: your resume is a telling place to put the skills you highlight on your resume into action. For example, if you say that you're organized, you should make doubly sure your resume is not chaotic. 

Math Tutor Resume

Why this resume works

  • Because hiring managers only spend six seconds on average looking at each resume, having a dedicated skills section on your math tutor resume saves critical time.
    • The skills section is a list of six to ten soft and hard skills that give employers an immediate picture of your capabilities.
      • But, this section isn't just a great place to emphasize your skills. It's also a crucial way to ensure hiring managers even see your resume. 
        • Because 200-300 people may apply to a single tutor job posting, employers use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to filter those that aren't a good fit. ATS will approve resumes that mention key job skills, so it's essential that you pay attention to the job description
      • Some of the most important tutor skills include teamwork, empathy, and being detail and goal-oriented. 
      • Check out our resume skills guide for tips on making your resume stand out.
  • When listing previous work experience, choose jobs with similar requirements to the one for which you're applying.
    • You may not have previous experience that directly correlates, and that's okay! A restaurant industry or sales role can also demonstrate communication, patience, and critical thinking skills.

    College Tutor Resume

    Why this resume works

    • Your college tutor resume should not exceed a page, but it should fill the whole page.
      • Try formatting your resume with fonts and page margins to ensure it reaches the bottom.
      • And remember that quantified metrics are the best way for you to efficiently demonstrate your experience. 
        • Did you know that 70 percent of hiring managers we surveyed said they would automatically pass on resumes that didn't include quantifiable metrics? 
    • If you have a limited work history (less than two sections), don't worry about it. Just make sure that you increase the number of work experience bullet points so that you fill the entire page. An empty page doesn't look as impressive as a full one.
    • Another way to take up space on an entry-level resume is by adding a resume career objective. Not only does it help fill the page, but it's an opportunity to show your personality and summarize what you bring to the table.
      • Aim to customize your objective for every position you apply to by including the company name, job title, and relevant skills.

    Online Tutor Resume

    Why this resume works

    • Your online tutor resume should emphasize virtual communication and technological skills that make for a more robust application.
    • Opt for a clean design and a professional resume template that enables the resume reader to easily view previous employers, work experience, education, and time frames.
      • Don't make employers scour for your information. If they can't find what they're seeking at first glance, they may not glance again.
      • You can make important features stand out by using contrasting fonts or small pops of color. And be consistent in your resume format for each work experience!
    • Whenever possible, add numbers to demonstrate your impact in previous positions. While not always easy, it will always be worth it. Seeing hard numbers helps the hiring manager conjure a tangible depiction of what you can do.

    Private Tutor Resume

    Why this resume works

    • Start each work experience bullet point with a strong action word. Action words exude confidence and demand attention.
      • Your private tutor resume should use great action words like "maximized," "cultivated," "recognized," "analyzed," "developed," "generated," "improved," "promoted," and "expanded."
    • Avoid filler words whenever possible. Using words like "very," "just," "completely," or "quickly" adds unnecessary fluff and can be distracting from the actual work you've done. We recommend using fewer words and denser language.
    • Include all the expected sections: contact information, education, skills, and work experience. Career objectives are optional, but are beneficial if used correctly.
    •  If you're unsure whether your resume is on target or want to see how it stands against the competition, you can run it through our free resume checker.
