How to Become a Tutor: Getting Started!

Welcome to my blog. You must be thinking you want to be a tutor. Great! Here you can use my personal experiences in 25 years of tutoring to launch and maintain your very own personal tutoring business.

Tutoring is a business that you don't need certification for (make sure you check the requirements in your country), you decide the hours you want to work, work location, age range of your clients, how you will get paid, and how much you will get paid.

To become a tutor you do need a skills set. Some of these skills you may already have and some you can work on getting starting today.

Don't worry, you don't necessarily need to be a brain in math to be a good tutor. Tutoring covers many subjects and math is only one of them.

Word of mouth is going to become one of your best forms of advertising for your business. There are also other ways to advertise your business, such as ads in the local paper, ads on bulletin boards at schools or universities, and by putting your name on a tutor list available at many schools, especially high school. Just phone some local schools and inquire. Many parents will ask at the school office about where to look for a tutor, so they will often carry a list of tutor's names to pass on.
