Online Social Work Tuition FAQs

Why study social work? 

A social work student studies the complex systems of society in hopes of improving people's lives. This profession is constantly adapting and becoming more sensitive to modern problems such as homelessness, domestic violence, mental health issues, addiction, or other challenges we find in today's world. The goal of many students is to enter a profession that will have a positive impact on society. Many are motivated to learn how they can help the community by providing resources and referrals to improve the quality of life. 

After graduating with a degree in social work, students should be able to analyze the impact of policies on individuals and know-how to practically implement them. They also need to understand how the needs of individuals relate to larger groups, such as families or communities, because ultimately we perceive our own identities through our interactions with these social groups. 

After graduation, social workers can find entry-level positions as caseworkers, patient care workers or mental health assistants. These are important roles in society that provide support to vulnerable members of society in difficult situations.

Many graduates advance in management and administration in government and private agencies. 

What university degrees is social work useful for?

A bachelor's degree in social work (BSW) is all you need to begin a career as an entry-level social worker. You'll work directly with children and families in health care, education, and child safety in a variety of settings, such as the medical field or community services.

Clinical social workers are an important part of the mental health workforce. They help people with severe and persistent mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or substance abuse and addiction. At least a master's degree in social work (MSW) is required to become a clinical social worker. You will need to know more about how these illnesses develop and evolve throughout life, as well as the various treatment options before you can diagnose any type of illness you encounter.

Alternatively, you can opt for macro social work where you work with governments and other public and private agencies rather than individuals. There are a number of specializations you can choose for a career in macro social work such as Masters in Social Research (Local Government and Public Policy) or Masters in Leadership in Health and Social Care. 

What careers can studying social work lead to?

Social work has never been more in demand. With the increasing number of vulnerable people, refugees and people affected by natural disasters, it is vital that there are specialist individuals who can support vulnerable people in society.

Here are some career options for those who major in Social work: 

  • Mental Health Social Worker

  • Substance Abuse Social Worker

  • Healthcare Social Worker

  • Clinical Social Worker

  • Child and Family Social Worker

  • Social Worker

  • Mental Health and Substance Abuse Social Worker

  • Medical Social Worker

  • Social Work Supervisor

  • Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)

  • Healthcare Social Worker

  • Behavioural Management Aide

  • Community Outreach Worker

  • Juvenile court Liaison

  • Rehabilitation Case Worker

How does social work help with Public health?

The field of public health and social work has become more popular in recent years: There are more schools offering dual degree programs, and the number of first-year students is increasing. Social workers now recognize the value of prevention and intervention in addressing problems from both an epidemiological and social perspective.

Public health social workers are increasingly finding employment in a variety of organisations working at different levels. They can effectively use their multidisciplinary skills to work as program managers for maternal and child health programs, disaster response teams, charities, and international organizations. There are many opportunities to help those who are struggling. 

How expert social work lessons can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online social work lessons will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.

We have a lot of repeat social care students who have taken online social work tutoring and you can check out the high star ratings our clients give their tutors. 

Because tutors set their rates via an auction system, our prices are more competitive than many other companies. Our private social work online classroom is stable and fun to learn through. It has an interactive whiteboard and students can access recordings of classes at any time. They use webcam video online chat when being taught.

How much is a private social work tutor per hour in London?

The average tutor price per hr is £40/$53/€45 per hour depending on a teachers’ experience and students’ level of study. This is higher than other areas in the UK due to the increased living costs that come with London life.

Is 'Social work tutor wanted' a suitable title for my advert?

Although this is maybe not the worst bad opening line, we strongly recommend that you give it some more thought. What do you need? What are you trying to achieve? Think about what level you are and what you need to improve on, whether you need help with GCSE level guidance, or help with a University admissions letter, put it in your advert.

For example, a great opening for many of our clients could be: ‘Social work support required to help with University Admissions Test’. The more details, the better the match!
