I had hoped to have the revised guide finished today, but it won’t be. The good news is that is 95% finished, so unless I fall off a cliff somewhere it should be ready next week. Like all things for my business I made a step by step list of things I needed to do and the dates they should be done, unfortunately I forgot to add some time in for things that I can’t control.
Remember if you order the old version of the guide –
Which is priced at $49, you’ll get a copy of the new guide when it comes out in a week for FREE. You can of course wait till it comes out, the initial price will be $79.
Tutoring College Classes – ways to find new students
Most colleges will be returning to classes soon. Tutoring college is unique, because students generally last only a semester before they take new and different classes. It is important to always keep a constant flow of new students coming into your business. Below are some ways you can do that.
- Let former students know that you’re still in business. Offer them some kind of incentive to bring you a student. Free food is always a good choice, if you need quite a few pizzas then you can talk to the local pizza place for a discount.
- Advertise in the student newspaper. Now (before classes) is a good time to advertise and after the first test / midterms are good times too.
- Contact the teachers that teach the classes you tutor. This should be super easy since most campuses have a directory that lists professors. Don’t just spam them though, use an indirect approach. Ask them if there is anything specifically they’ll be going over this semester that students usually have difficult with. Then explain to them that you’re tutoring and you have some of their students.
- Signs around the buildings people take classes you tutor. Make it easy for students to contact you.
- Have a free get together with food (pizza works again), during this meeting you could give them some free information about whatever classes you’re tutoring, while they eat. Then make sure that everyone has your contact information.
- Bribe current students you’re tutoring – again same as method 1 but these folks you’re already tutoring.
- Hangout around the dorms, one of our students offered free coffee for parents and students as they were moving back into the dorms after winter break. He got 7 more students for spending a few hours in the cold.
- Ask the local deliver companies if you can advertise with their take out – track your spending / results. If it works, then continue and if not then try something else.
These should give you some ideas. I hope you have a wonderful week!
