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.

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.

How to Become A Tutor: Tutoring to Supplement Your Income

How to Become a Tutor: Tutoring to Supplement Your Income
While tutoring is a great way to supplement your income, the income should not be your focus. Tutoring is not like a day job you dislike that you just "show up for every day." While it is important to you to make money tutoring, trust me that you need to care more about your students than about the money to really shine at this job. The money will definitely come, but make sure your focus is in the right place.

When you tutor, you are going to be on a very personal, individual level with another person. You become that person's mentor, and a level of trust is built up. Your student will be able to tell how much you genuinely care. If you are only in this job for the income, this will be very clear to the student, and you will not be successful.

I have found in my 25+ years of tutoring that the student's success is built as much upon confidence as it is upon skill set.

Fostering confidence in your student is going to be one of your main objectives. How will you do this? If you were given the assignment to build your student's confidence in a way that is not based on teaching them more skills in the subject being tutored, how would you do it?

Get a pencil and paper and start brainstorming. I am not going to give out any ideas until the next post. :)
