In this lecture, I look at all possible questions you need to ask yourself when setting up a tutoring business, and how to go about it.


This is very important! You do not want to undervalue, or even overvalue your services. In this lecture, I explain to you all the ways to determine your hourly rate.

Online tutor directories are a great place to place a FREE ad promoting your services. In this lecture, I look at the ways to go about finding the best online tutoring directories.


Local classified ads are often overlooked by tutors, so this is a goldmine for you! In this lecture, I explain the secrets to getting to the top of Google without spending a cent!


In this lecture, I look at another advertising method which is to go directly or indirectly to schools. I explain what each of these terms means in the lecture! Also be sure to find my attachment which explains the key differences between the direct and indirect method!


In this lecture, I look at how you can use Facebook to reach out to your students. If you're teaching high school students, then they will definitely be on here, and so you want to be on there too.

In this lecture, I explain to you the importance of making chapter summaries, and the reasons behind this. See an attached example of my chapter summary for the subject that I tutor.
