Starting your Own Tutoring Business Has Never Been Easier!

By: Kasey Hammond


Tutoring and the supplemental education market has exploded throughout the US and Europe in the last 5 years and Newsweek Magazine hailed tutoring services as "an exploding market!"

The best part is you don't have to have a teaching degree to be a private tutor! In fact, many tutors find opportunities to teach what they enjoy and love. They now can earn an amazing income from their new career simply by having the right personality, attitude and sufficient knowledge of their subject.

Starting your own tutoring business allows you to grow at your own pace, work when you want, and work with whom you choose. Getting started is easy and has very low start up costs. Having a proven outline to follow helps new tutors get started on their way to a successful money making business.

A tutoring business is ideal for moms, students, entrepreneurs or just about anyone who wants to own their own business and make the difference in a student's learning career. Depending on the region, most tutors find they make anywhere from $40 - $70 dollars per hour. Tutoring can be done from your own home, at a local coffee house, at the student's house or at a public library.

Detailed lesson plans are not necessary as a tutor because a tutor's role is just simply to explain and reinforce the lesson plans already outlined by the teacher. Another bonus is that tutors typically get to work with the students who truly wish to improve and are motivated to do better.

Advertising costs are very minimal and include small newspaper ads, flyers, paying for a directory listing on the internet or on your city or county's website. Some tutors choose to take it one step further and get their own website where they list their prices and give background information about themselves on their website.

Teachers and schools are a great source of referrals and once they get to know you will easily give out your name to potential customers. As challenges continue to grow in education, the need for a personalized tutor continues to grow. With many households having two working parents and the stress of day to day life, parents are happily paying tutors to work one on one with their children to ensure success in their academic studies.

Tutors who are enthusiastic about the subject they are tutoring will find they will succeed and have parents and teachers begging them to work with their students!
