I was already working in the school but I think if you are a certified teacher they would be willing to put you on the list to tutor.

Our school had a list of people who would tutor like someone else mentioned. I also had parents come and ask me to tutor. We are not allowed to tell people we tutor or we could lose our license, but we can if we're asked.

Thanks for the help! I am curious, do those of you who tutor through the school have jobs in the school already? I am a certified teacher but have only been subbing. Also, did you need to have a special ed endorsement to tutor the kids at home?

I really appreciate your suggestions. I'm trying to find a way to earn some extra money until I can get my own classroom.

I have done tutoring on the side but also done both homebound and extended school year services for students with special needs. Generally the going price is between $20-50 an hour - when doing it for the school, it is on the low end and in our poor rural community, most of the time these days I do through the school because parents are really hard pressed to pay for such services.

I have usually tutored during the summer and went to the child's home. Our school sends out a list to parents of people willing to tutor and what grade levels they prefer. (I will only tutor up to 3rd grade).Math and reading are the areas I tutored. I have also tutored a student who was home due to medical problems during the school year. (for 3 months of the school year).The school paid in that circumstance and the pay was higher.

I've just done a little tutoring on the side. It turned out to be a pain once the school said we couldn't tutor in our own classrooms. I had to bring kids to my house or reserve a room at our library. That meant I transported them to the site and parents picked up. I was told the average per hour is between $25-$50 per hour. I charged $35.

Has anyone started a tutoring business? I'd be interested in learning from your experiences. Did you specialize in certain ages or subjects? How did you market your tutoring services? How did you determine how much to charge? What was successful and what didn't work well? Thanks!
