―Tutoring and Test Preparation is Booming,‖ according to the U.S. Industry Report.
―With the recession in full effect, unemployed Americans began returning to school at an increasing rate, boosting demand for tutoring and test preparation services. While this trend is expected to continue, other factors will contribute to the industry's forecast growth.‖ May 20, 2010, U.S. Industry Report.
Amazingly, tutors are earning more than ever and while most Americans have little money to spend, they are using it for tutoring either for themselves or their children.
Even the Gifted are Turning to Tutors
According to the Chicago Tribune, ―even the gifted are now turning to tutors‖. A reporter from the Chicago Tribune stated that, ―Today, though, tutoring has evolved way beyond the remedial to a form of instruction for top-level students as well as those as young as kindergartners. It's a twist that says a lot about academic anxiety among some Americans, competitive parents and a rising gap in what experts call educational equity.‖
Why are so many people seeking tutors?
The answer is simple. It is a fact that everyone knows:
More education means more earning power.
Parents are choosing a better life for their children when they invest in tutoring and, after that, higher
education. As a result, tutors are in demand. When demand increases prices go up, as we all know. As a result, people who tutor can ask for even more money for their services.
I never tutor for less than $40.00 per hour; and I often receive $100.00 per hour by scheduling several students with similar learning goals at the same meeting.
Their parents pay ahead of time for their sessions, each one pays $25.00 per hour for group tutoring sessions. Do the math and you can see how easily you can earn good money in the tutoring business.
This is an excellent time to start a tutoring business!
