Educational Tutor business. If helping others is your passion, it doesn't get much better than being a teacher.
Education is a major element of a child's development. For parents wanting the peace of mind that their child is receiving the proper education, extracurricular tutoring can be the preferred method of extended educational training beyond public school. There is one main requirement for starting this type of instruction business; you have to be an expert in the field in which you intend to teach or tutor. Beyond that, the business is very simple to start. The business can be operated on a mobile basis going to the client, or a tutoring business can be operated from a homebased office with the client coming to you. Building a customer and referral base for this type of business can be accomplished by joining community business associations and parent teacher associations. Networking and self-promotion is probably the best marketing strategy. Tutoring is a competitive industry and to gain the upper hand requires explanation and disclosure of credentials firsthand. Current rates for a professional tutoring service vary from a low of $18 per hour to a high of $35 per hour depending on course material and complexity.
