All Graduate job news
It was estimated this week that half of all London children have received some form of private tuition, and that graduates are providing much of that service.
The founder of the Enjoy Education agency in west London claimed she had seen business double over the past 12 months, while the managing director of Fleet Tutors saw a 15 per cent rise in the number of children on its books.
The rise in the tutor has been fuelled by nervous parents who do not trust their children's schools to help them get the best grades possible.
In an interview with the London Evening Standard, a recent graduate said he had 150 families on his agency's books, and charged £40-45 an hour for tuition sessions.
Will Orr-Ewing of Keystone Tutors in Chelsea told the paper that he "takes children whose needs are not being met in the classroom".
And if the tuition boom continues it could prove to be a valuable source of income for graduate job seekers.
Last week it was revealed that there were 333,720 degrees awarded to graduates in 2009.
