Being a private tutor is something that many teachers consider, but few actually pursue. In fact, you don’t even need to have an education degree to be a private tutor. With public schooling often not fulfilling all of the learning points that parents desire, the popularity of private tutors is rising every year.
Parents are willing to invest in one-on-one sessions instead of crowded classrooms that may cause distraction or anxiety for some children. If you have a passion for helping people learn, then becoming a tutor may just be the perfect profession to pursue! In this video, we will learn all about the steps you need to take to create a profitable private tutoring business.
The first step is to create a business plan. You need to analyze which subjects you are strong in, and which you would be confident enough to teach to others. Next, you should do some market research into where to begin in the subject. You should also determine which services you are going to offer. Virtual sessions, in-person sessions, test prep, and lectures are all very different. Finally, you need to set your prices as to be in competition with other local tutors around you.
