*** How Online Tutoring Has Changed My Life: My Story ***
I decided to give online tutoring a try in a time of financial struggle. Before I started, I did not know that:
I was going to be able to charge my first 79USD/hr as early as 16 days after my first day of tutoring online, and
I would be able to accumulate 92 all 5-star ratings & reviews on online tutoring marketplaces, without even a single 4-star rating
Online tutoring has worked wonders for me, and I created Online Tutoring Mastery blog (and this course) to spread the news about this great opportunity.
I did not give online tutoring a try until I was feeling desperate, because I thought it wouldn’t work. I had mainly two reasons to think so:
There is no shortage of great online tutors, who would even consider booking me? Why would anyone do a session with a newbie like me when there are thousands of well-reputed tutors with stellar reviews?
Any online resource that claims you can make 50 USD/hr from your home is typically either wishful thinking or useless clickbait. I thought online tutoring was similar too: Wishful thinking.
But circumstances forced me to give it a try. And to my surprise, it worked, and it worked great! Now I am grateful for those financial struggles, because I met online tutoring thanks to them.
To collect ratings and build a reputation I had to start cheap.
Initially I offered almost free sessions in return for reviews.
Things proceeded quicker than I thought and I was able to charge my first 79 USD/hr 16 days after my very first online tutoring session.
By the end of the first 6 weeks I was charging 79 USD/hr consistently.
In my first 3 months of tutoring online in my extra time, I made more than 3 months’ net graduate student teaching assistant salary. To my pleasant surprise, my attempt for extra income ended up being my main source of income. After 3 months of online tutoring I saved enough money to fix my financial struggles. Even though I stopped tutoring online to focus on my PhD studies, this adventure has started a new chapter in my life.
Online tutoring has changed my life but not because of the amount I made. It changed my life because it showed me that I can make more than 50 USD/hr whenever I want, wherever I want. Now I am not afraid of future financial struggles because I know I can start making more than 50 USD/hr any day I want.
As a graduate student, this is as close as it gets to a “financial superpower”, and I cannot even describe the feeling of financial security and peace of mind that comes along with it.
Life feels much better knowing that I will be financially independent even if I lose my day job and no matter where I live. As long as I have access to my budget-friendly, portable equipment and a good internet connection, I will be able to feed myself and my family. And this is thanks to online tutoring.
This feeling of security is the way online tutoring has changed my life.
After this great experience I had with online tutoring, I started telling my friends about it and watched the positive impact it had on their lives too. I thought this was great news for all of us who can teach, and I decided to create an online tutoring blog to spread the news.
I was humbled by the enormous interest and feedback I have received, and this encouraged me to create this course. In this course I share everything I know about how you can become a successful and high earning online tutor. I share the exact steps that brought me success, and I also provide support so that we can watch your online tutoring success story unfold together.
