How to Become a Tutor: Work for Yourself or Someone Else?

How to Become a Tutor: Work for Yourself or Someone Else?

When preparing to be a tutor, you will be choosing whether to work for yourself or someone else.

I spent 25 years as a private tutor, self-employed. I loved it because I could choose my own hours, my own clients, and the flexibility worked very well for me. I did most of my tutoring at my own home. When my children were very young, I would put them to bed and then do a couple hours of tutoring.

This schedule also worked well for my students. I would see one student at 7-8pm and another at 8-9pm. I also had one student who came over Saturday morning, when my hubby could watch the kids, from 10-11am.

When the kids got older, I would sometimes tutor from 4:30-5:30pm. I would have a snack ready for the kids after school, and then send them downstairs to play games or watch tv for that hour. I would have put supper in the crockpot early in the day so it would be ready when my student left, or I would have something in the fridge ready to warm up.

I had all the students I could accommodate and more. I often had more students request tutoring than I could handle. I never once spent a penny on advertising. It was all done by word of mouth.

Maybe working for yourself is not a viable option for you. If you cannot seem to get your first clients or word of mouth is not getting you enough clients, then consider where in your local area you could get hired as a tutor. If you're good at crafts, check out craft stores and see if they run classes- or would consider running classes that you could teach. If you want to tutor high school subjects, go to the high schools in your area and see what they have for programs. You could advertise at universities and colleges as well.

Also, check out local tutoring services and see if they're hiring.
