Here’s how working at Art of Smart helped our team land their dream careers!
“There were 1300 applicants for the Australian Treasury Graduate Program this year for 25 positions. To be honest, it is so competitive that I feel that if I had not joined the AOS team, I would not have been offered a role. You need something to differentiate yourself from the other candidates. Working at Art of Smart has taught me so much. I’ve learned so many invaluable skills that you simply cannot just learn at university.”
“My development in communication and explaining concepts clearly through coaching was very helpful in making a good impression during the interview and propsective employers also valued the practices of creative lesson planning strategies and the holistic mentoring approach that were inculcated at Art of Smart, as evidence of an organised and balanced approach to work. Also, my experiences in communicating with students and parents were a great way to convey to the firm my approach to dealing with different stakeholders in engineering projects.”
“I think one of the big benefits that Art of Smart provided me when interviewing was the experiences that working in the Senior Leadership Team provided me in working with management, understanding the development progress of taking an idea and subsequently implementing it. This when paired with the improved communication skills allowed me to feel at ease when discussing my resume with interviewers and showing off my skillset. I would say to new coaches get involved with the programs available here which you don’t get at other tutoring companies or other employers for uni students!”
“Working at Art of Smart helped me to become a teacher by giving me experience in assessing students’ learning and teaching content and skills to secondary students. As well as this, it has helped me develop communication skills that are essential for teaching. My interactions with students and other keen coaches also motivated me to pursue a career in education once I had finished my undergraduate science degree!”

Here’s what we look for…
A Proven Academic Track Record
First and foremost, to be a great tutor you need to know your stuff, and that’s why we look for a proven academic track record. We take into account your ATAR, university results, whether you’ve completed an undergraduate degree or are completing a teaching degree!
Clear Communication Skills
While having strong academic credentials is important, it’s even more important to be able to communicate clearly – and that’s why we look for exceptional communicators skills. In our interview you’ll need to teach us a micro-lesson so we can best understand how you communicate!
A Role Model for Students
Great tutors go beyond teaching the syllabus content and this is a key part of our holistic approach as all our tutors provide mentoring for our students.
As a result we look for role models for students – so while a proven academic track record is important we also look for tutors who have life experience, from playing sport or musical instruments, travelling, speaking multiple languages, volunteering and more!
Driver’s Licence & Mobility
We provide 1 on 1 tutoring and mentoring in the comfort of a student’s home – this means that there’s some travel involved in the role.
We work to ensure that work with students is in local areas for our tutors, however having a driver’s license and mobility through access to a car makes things easier for everyone!
Passionate About Working with Young People
A great tutor motivates and inspires their students to want to learn, to want to excel, to stretch and to achieve their goals.
And that’s why being passionate about working with young people and teaching is critical – if you’re not passionate it’s very difficult to motivate and inspire someone else! As a result we look for people who are passionate about inspiring young people to achieve their best!
