  • You can decide when you tutor, where you tutor, and what you charge
  • You have flexibility in setting the number of hours you want to tutor
  • You reap all of the financial rewards from your tutoring activity

Cons:

  • You have to find students yourself
  • You have to undertake all administrative, client management, accounting and financial tasks
  • You have to personally ensure you adhere to  all legal compliance requirements in relation to Working with Children (or police background checks), and taxation and trade practices requirements
  • You will have to source all resources and teaching aids yourself, including all lesson plans

Questions you must address in planning your services:

  • What subject areas do you want to tutor?
  • At what level do you want to tutor? That is, are you planning to tutor primary level students, middle school, senior school or tertiary students?
  • If you plan to tutor high school students,it is very important to understand the curriculum for your subject areas, and be prepared to assist your students to meet the requirements of the curriculum.
  • Where will you provide your services?  What transportation requirements will you require?  
  • What resources will you need to tutor? (Text books, stationery etc.)
