So I took the plunge and started tutoring. I am still working fulltime, with the 'joys' that brings, and being a single dad with two tweenies to raise fulltime. I am busy. Over the last ten weeks I managed to squeeze in 4-5 hours a week of tutoring which gave me an extra $200 or near abouts a week. I know I am not going to retire in a year on this revenue, but what I have found is a need. A big need. My clients/students/parents have all told me that they know of other parents that want to use me for tutoring. I am currently setting myself up to offer groups of 2-3 tutoring at a time, rather than one to one. I am also looking at offering a vaction care with a 8 hr day of activities for science/math/coding based. Initially I would offer this for 1 day and see how it goes. Seeing as I am on school hols as well, cant hurt. I am getting my skill set up to address the needs of the students I see, so its a more refined approach to assisting them. I enjoy the tutoring even though some days after working and looking after my kids I am tired to my bones, but I can see a need that is there and I am meeting that need in a small way. I can't quit work yet (sadly), plus most of my clients would still be at school. Going forward I will just listen to the market and see what it says back to me about where to go next. I scratch my head at the moment thinking about how to make this more scalable. I have thought about online tutoring or a database/directory of tutors as possible options. However I would be interested to hear what other have to say.
