Tutoring by Teens Business Overview:

If you’re an excellent student who’s looking for a way to put your smarts to use in your very own small business, you should start a tutoring by teens business. Many parents today are vigilant about their children’s grades and hiring a teenage tutor would be a wonderful option. Your teen tutor business would cater to younger children in elementary school and middle school, helping them raise their grades in basic studies like math, history and English. Depending on your high school curriculum, you may even be able to earn course credit for tutoring children. But even if you don’t earn credit, owning and operating a tutoring business will look wonderful on your college applications and your resume. You would likely set up your tutoring appointments in the afternoons so as not to interfere with your clients’ dinner and bedtime schedule. You may have some weekend appointments as well. This business idea requires in-person communication so you’ll meet your clients either at their homes or at their schools (if their schools offer after-school programs). Therefore, you will need some form of transportation. If you’re not old enough to drive, you can always ride your bike to your appointments. As you market your business around town and your schedule fills up, you will probably need to hire teen tutors to work for you. At that point, you can either continue tutoring your clients or hand them off to one of your capable tutors and concentrate on marketing and managing your business.
