I love tutoring but doubt I would do it on Zoom or some other platform. I had started with 2 new students before the shutdown and was so disappointed when I stopped. One mom told me I could still come to the house but I wasn't comfortable with it.

I have been nervous every time I began tutoring a new student. I usually met or spoke with a parent, emailed the teacher, and tried to get the workbooks they used. I can't imagine tutoring over Zoom so I haven't bothered to consider it.

If you decide to do it, find out what "try me out" means. Do they want you to do it for free? Or to see how you work with the student? Is it in-person? I might offer 1 free session, but no more. You are not a volunteer!
