1. Promoting yourself: A tutor looks and acts professional, including the image you give, how you are dressed, punctuality, and orderly conduct. A tutor is confident but not prideful. Your image is your promotion of yourself to people around you.
Promoting your tutoring business will involve finding effective advertising, which doesn't cost you too much. Word of mouth is cheap and works well, but you must know a lot of people and have good connections for this to work for you.

2. Staying safe: Make sure you are covered at all times; in other words, don't put yourself into a situation where you could be accused of inappropriate behavior. Tutoring in public can be a good answer, or wait until you are very familiar to the student and their parents before suggesting in-home tutoring.

3. As a self-employed tutor, you must educate yourself as to how to handle income statements, income tax declarations, etc. for your own country. Do everything honestly, with everything above board, and you will never have to worry.

There's always room for improvement, and being the most effective tutor you can be is the best investment in yourself that you can make.
