Thanks for joining us. This has been a miserable winter here, today (again) we are or will have below zero wind chill. I am so ready for Summer. If youâ€™re on our blog, you can see of what it looked where I lived a couple of days ago. Next week is more snow and cold weather.
I am not alone in this, in the business notes section I have given you a couple of ideas of what you can do for your tutor business during this time. To both increase your revenues and to possibly get some more students.
By a landslide the vote from last week was to talk about building your tutor business from the ground up, and so that is what weâ€™ll be doing, beginning today and weâ€™ll finish whenever we finish, a good guess would be sometime this summer.
Today is also my anniversary, Iâ€™ve been married 23 years to a wonderful woman I love and puts up with me.
Tutor Business 101 â€“ The Start
To begin I recommend you take our quick course. Itâ€™s a 7 Day- build a business course. You can find a sign up here – http://www.cleverapple.com/7dayemailseries.html
The tasks it asks you to do are simple and straightforward. If you have any questions you can send us a note (if youâ€™re receiving this as a newsletter, just hit reply), or visit us on Facebook and post a comment.
Next time weâ€™ll talk about those messages in detail.
Business Notes â€“
You should already be following the schools and districts close to where you live. This requires a little extra time and someways you set it up, you may have to be available all day. This would work well if youâ€™re a stay at home mom (or dad), if youâ€™re a teacher, or perhaps if you work night shift.
Let your students know that if school is called off youâ€™ll be having Tutor Camp. So what is Tutor Camp? First it isnâ€™t just studying. You want the kids to ask to come back, and if all you do is study, then they wonâ€™t be back.
Set the times you want the tutor camp to run. For example 8am to 4pm. The parents will want to have a place for their kids to stay while they work.
Charge them for your service.
Think first about how many students you could handle. Letâ€™s say 5. When I did this I charged double what I would have for a one hour session.
Tell the students they need to reserve a space (before there is a snow day) and when they come theyâ€™ll to bring their own lunch. Youâ€™ll provide the drinks.
Spend a couple of hours in the morning tutoring. The rest of the day ask them what they want to do. Be prepared for a wide range of interests and wants.
