How To Become A Tutor: A Guide On Starting A Tuition Business

Are you in between jobs and looking for a challenge? Are you taking a career break but still want to earn some extra cash? Are you working in a dull, under-paid position that you just don’t like? Or are you a highly educated student who is tired of working in a bar?

If you relate to any of these, then tuition could be a viable option for you. You do not need a teaching qualification, to have completed a particular course, or to have particular work experience. Tutors are a varied bunch but they should all have the requisite subject knowledge, a passion for learning and a friendly, professional manner.

You really can make money tutoring. Tuition is a booming business and, for many, it offers a real alternative to the 9-5 roles, or low-rate part-time positions on offer in most industries. Tuition is interactive, engaging and varied. You can set your own rates, your own hours and decide on your own clients. But most importantly, it is incredibly rewarding.

Many children lack the confidence and skills they should have already built. Parents recognise this and are crying out for good tutors to help their children make the progress required to get back on track. Similarly, already academically strong children who are hoping to secure top grades often need a little guidance to get there. Your students will be a varied bunch, often of different ages. This is the enjoyable challenge of tutoring.

This guide seeks to help provide tutors with all the guidance required to become an outstanding tutor and to build your own tutoring business.
