To help our tutoring community, we’ve compiled a few tips on how to make the most of the One2One’s platform, and a few extra tricks based on the experience of real tutors.
Rather than ‘Maths Tuition’, why not try labelling a class something more creative, such as ‘Counting with Pasta’? The former might appear too generic and falls short on communicating the full extent of what a tutor has to offer. By contrast, the latter works to clearly distinguish itself from traditional maths lessons and attracts parents seeking more dynamic styles of teaching aimed at younger children who are usually more responsive to physical learning aids.
‘Jamaican Cooking Classes, with a Hint of Spice’ is another example of an energetic title which provides insight into what the class entails. It signposts to browsing parties that this is a class that not only teaches children to cook, but also introduces them to a new cuisine and encourages them to expand their flavour palate.
Experience, level, and niche are the most important factors in pricing classes to a number that both appeals to potential students and reflects the quality of tuition you offer. Starting rates will depend firstly on how long you have been in the tutoring business and your highest level of qualification in the subject to be taught. This rate is by no means fixed, however, and there’ll always be an opportunity around the corner to advance one’s tutoring career. As you hit milestones in terms of the number of hours and students tutored, the increased experience, er-calibre teaching, and greater familiarity with the topic will warrant a hike in prices. Given that cost is an accurate reflection of the service provided, parents and students will be more than happy to accommodate your rates.
