Are you a tutoring entrepreneur looking for places to tutor students? If so, this article is for you. We’ll outline a few places where you can tutor students without having to open a tutoring center location.
Here are 6 locations where you can tutor students:
1. Online Platforms
One option for tutoring students is online platforms. There are a number of online tutoring platforms that allow you to connect with students from all over the world. All you need is a computer and an adequately fast internet connection. The most common platforms are:
- Google Hangouts
2. A Cafe or Coffee Shop
Another option for places to tutor students is cafes or coffee shops. This is a great option if you live in a city and have a lot of coffee shops from which to choose. Find a location that has a quiet area where you can tutor your students without being interrupted. And, you can get some coffee to keep you focused!
3. Public Schools
If you’re looking for places to tutor students that are local, public schools are a great option. Many schools have after-school programs that allow students to get extra help with their studies. You can contact the school to see if they’re looking for any tutors and/or if you would be allowed to use space in an after-school program room to tutor your students.
Libraries are another great option for places to tutor students. They usually have quiet places where you can work, and they also have a wide array of resources that you can use for your tutoring sessions. Ensure you and your student are relatively quiet so you don’t disturb other library patrons.
5. Parks or Recreation Areas
If you live in a warmer climate, you may want to consider tutoring students outdoors. Parks are a great option because they usually have areas for sitting and plenty of walking pathways. Parks can be a distraction for young students; therefore, you may want to try one session in the park with your student and observe carefully to determine whether or not your student can remain focused despite the activity in the park.
6. Your Student’s Home
And finally, you can offer to tutor your students in their homes. This is a good option if 1) you have established a relationship with the parents or others in the home, and 2) if the environment in the neighborhood is safe and comfortable for you. Always discuss the option before assuming you will be able to work in someone’s home and ask permission before entering a student’s home.
This article has given you ideas for several places to tutor your students. There are many options available, so consider the age of your student, the ability of your student to remain focused in a coffee shop or at a park, and decide where you believe you and your student can get the most out of your tutoring session. If you don’t have a tutoring center, use your creativity and think outside the box to find places where you can tutor your students.
