Private tutoring is a natural way for educators to augment income, work on a one-to-one basis with students, or increase their expertise in a variety of subjects. This booklet, based on 25 years as a teacher/private tutor, provides a comprehensive introduction to the best practices that can help one work as a professional tutor, whether with just a few students, or with an eye to eventually establishing a full-time tutoring business. This 50-page booklet, complete with checklists and sample policy statement, provides information to help you decide whether or not to tutor, establish a client base, prepare for work in the session, deal with challenging clients and those with special needs, and handle the business end of tutoring. This book provides practical suggestions for getting started right away and for addressing payments, cancellations, liability/safety issues, and more. Included are personal examples to help you succeed and grow your business if you so desire. Whether you're a new teacher, ready for retirement, or in the middle of your professional journal, tutoring can provide the supplemental income you need for yourself or your family!
