Introducing the New How to Start Tutoring Website!
Congratulations on taking the first step to earning extra money through starting your own tutoring business! As we’re getting started please keep in mind that the purpose of this website is to show you step-by-step how to get started tutoring without having to invest money upfront (unless you want to). You will also learn how to use free and inexpensive tools to attract new tutoring clients, how to charge what you’re worth (which is probably much more than you think!), and how to take care of all the business and administrative details.
You don’t need to put any money into your business upfront. Instead, save the profits from your tutoring and use those to cover the costs of any business-related expenses you choose to incur in the future. If it turns out that you do not like tutoring or you cannot continue to perform your services, then you have lost nothing!
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
My Goals For Helping You Start a Tutoring Business
Personally, my goals with How to Start Tutoring are to inspire teachers, college students, and working professionals to start working part-time for themselves to earn some extra money tutoring. Maybe it will even become a full time business someday. Tutoring is a very rewarding job that connects you with interesting people and provides the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped somebody. Good tutors, just like good teachers, have the opportunity to inspire students and have a lasting, positive impact on the lives of students of all ages.
If starting a tutoring business is something you have been wanting to do, I am here to help get you started and also to help you continue to improve your tutoring services from a business perspective.
Before You Start Your Tutoring Business…
Before we get to work, I want to let you know that it’s both okay and normal to not get things perfect on the first try. Do not let this stop you from taking action. Taking action and being imperfect makes you significantly better than the vast majority of people because few will actually do anything. Besides, you can always go back and improve your work as you go along. Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.
“If failure is not an option, than neither is success.” – Seth Godin in Stop Stealing Dreams
The Four Aspects of a Successful Tutoring Business
To be successful with your tutoring business, you will need to nail these four core competencies:
- Generating Leads for Tutoring Clients
- Selling and Closing Tutoring Deals
- Providing Incredible Tutoring Services
- Administrating Your Tutoring Business (Working on your business, not in it.)
It sounds simple enough, but in reality it is going to require a lot of legwork and preparation. You can do it though! There are links below to our best blog posts to help you get your tutoring business started on the right track!
