Start a Home Tutoring Business

Aug 17, 2007
Very little money is required to start a home tutoring business. This is why tutoring is one of the best home based businesses available and the most profitable. There is almost no start up cost and you need very little training beyond a traditional education you get in high school. Of course higher education helps but is simply not necessary to succeed at tutoring. This is really a great option for making extra money for stay at home parents who want to stay home but would like a little bit more money in their pockets each week. Tutoring offers a schedule which is extremely flexible and also you need only to spend a few hours a day to make a profit. A s tutor expect to make between 20 and 100 dollars per session. The price usually varies with your experience, and education as well as the subject matter you are teaching and the challenges the student has. A special education tutor will make more money than a traditional tutor.

Remember tutors have the ability to work out of their homes, travel to the students home, or work out of the local library. If you start a home tutoring business you will have the freedom to choose exactly what you want to teach, who you want to teach, and how you want to teach it. Below are a couple of points to ponder before jumping head first in the the tutoring business. Good luck and teach on!

Funds! You can basically start a home tutoring business for about $20 bucks. My advice is to spend it on supplies at the local dollar store. Stock up and pencils, paper, and rewards.

Pricing! Rates vary and after meeting the client you will know what they are willing to pay and what they can afford. Adjust your rates to fit the clients needs and your own needs. Remember you time is worth money and do not be afraid to at least ask for what you would like and the bargain to a price which is compromise for both parties. As a rule services in a bit city are going to run more money then in a small town. Also, the more services your provide the more money you should get paid.

Sell yourself! Remember if you want to start a home tutoring business you need to make sure you get your name out there. If you want people to come and use your services you have to let people know that you are a tutor. People usually like some type of certification. Usually your local community college or adult education programs will offer a certification program for tutors or substitute teachers. This is a great way to show you have the right education to start a home tutoring business.
