Tutoring is one of the fastest growing home-based businesses that you can find. There are many options available to you, including working as a private tutor, tutoring online for an online tutoring agency, tutoring locally for a tutoring center, or tutoring students who are taking classes by distance learning or correspondence.

Setting up a tutoring business, in which you have a group of tutors working for you, is also an option you should consider. Many skilled and experienced people are looking for online tutoring jobs or local tutoring positions. If you are interested in running your own little-or big- business, this may be the choice for you.

First you will need to you want to tutor online? If you do, the whole world is your marketplace. Do you want to tutor in person only? This is very satisfying and rewarding, and there is great demand for local tutors who can meet in person with their students for tutoring instruction.

Next, you will need to will you do your marketing for your tutoring business? You can put up signs locally where accepted. You can advertise online, you can ask your friends to spread the word. For the 25 years I have been tutoring, I have used only word of mouth advertising and I have more students than I can possibly take on for tutoring.

How much will you charge? What hours will you work? How much tutoring will you do in a week? Where will you do the tutoring? Are you knowledgeable about tutoring regulations in your country?

Once you have answered all these questions, it is time to proceed with your plan. Get some students, and start sharing your skills. You will be helping someone else and making good money at the same time.

This blog contains much useful information for your tutoring business. Good luck! And please leave comments if you desire.

How to Become a Tutor: Teaching Students to Read
A tutor who teaches reading skills should have a repertoire of reference material. Whether you are tutoring children, teens or adults, it is very helpful to own some resources you can use to base your lessons on or to supplement what you already have.

A good starting point for your reference collection is the book by Siegfried Engelmann, titled, "Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons."

This is a highly successful program for beginning readers, one that you cannot afford to be without.

I have outlined building relationships and building confidence in other posts. These are also very important areas when teaching children to learn how to read. In a future post I will cover some basics on teaching adults how to read, and in teaching english as a second language.
