Hello everyone! So I'm spending the summer planning the possibility of starting my own tutoring service this fall. I am extremely excited about it and I have been researching like crazy! So far, I'm thinking I will charge maybe $20 per hour and focus primarily on elementary level reading & math. I am NYS certified in Literacy Instruction (reading specialist) Birth-Grade 6. I have been a 3rd grade teacher for years and was given the good news before school let out that I will have a new position as a Reading Recovery teacher and Academic Intervention reading teacher as well. I'm nervous, but excited! At the same time, I feel like I'll have a little more time on my hands afterschool now eliminating grading papers, report cards etc. Perfect opportunity to do what I've been wanting to do and earn extra money at the same time! Only thing is I don't know what I'm doing! :lol: Anyways, if anyone could offer any advice or suggestions for me that would be great! I'm torn between choosing to do the tutoring services here at my home or meeting at the local library or coffee shop. Pros & cons for both! I'm also torn between what to charge. And what I should name my tutoring company/service. I want to make business cards and flyers next week! But no clever name yet! Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
