It has decided it wants to be winter here. We went from days around 70 degrees and now it is around 50 degrees with nights in the high 20â€™s mid 30â€™s. It reminds me now is a great time to be a tutor as students start to find out how they may be doing, and they start worrying about finals, youâ€™ll want to make sure to include something about that in your advertising.
Also ACTâ€™s are coming up â€“ my daughter takes her first one this Saturday.
Following the Rules for Your Business – Â
First I would like to say, Iâ€™m definitely not a lawyer, the things we talk about are to help you find some guidance. You should consult with local people to make sure youâ€™re complying with everything where you live.
It is impossible for us to know every regulation for every city and state in the U.S. I did get a good question this week though from a reader. They asked about assessment tests in their state.
A good first place to start finding the rules and regulations in your state is to ask a business owner in a similar business to tutoring. Or you can ask someone who already has a tutor business.
Weâ€™ve talked some about Federal things. Youâ€™ll also want to check out any regulations your state has. Kentucky has a one stop business portal. http://onestop.ky.gov/start/Pages/default.aspx
Most states should have something similar, youâ€™ll just have to search for it.
Local rules â€“ a great place to start is by calling your local government people, or visiting their website.
They will be a ton of things you wonâ€™t need for your business, thatâ€™s why I always recommend speaking to a lawyer to make sure what you need to do and can do without. I know lawyers are expensive, but in this case you will most likely save some money in the long run.
