Does anyone do in-home tutoring for extra income? I was tossing around the idea and just wondered if you had any advice or ideas to share. Also, has anyone had experience with ClubZ Tutoring Services? Thanks!

For the first time this summer, I am tutoring a couple of students in my home. I had them this past year in class, so know what their academic needs are.

I haven't tutored in home but I was considering working at Huntington Learning Center. They are the most incompetent liars and @$$holes ever. I heard that it is better to work from home than at one of those places such as ClubZ because you can earn more money and be your own boss. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I tutor all year. If they are neighbors and I know the families well, I will tutor them at home. If they are students from my school or another, I always tutor at the library. I would not work for a tutoring center, you can make MUCH more if you tutor on your own. My principal will refer parents who are in search of a tutor to me, and I also get tutoring jobs through word-of-mouth. It has been a great way for me to earn some extra money.

I tutor during the school year and summer. I advertise through cragislist.com...it's free and the feedback has been good. I charge $40 per hour and am fortunate to be at the point where my schedule is full.

Can anyone tell me about working at Sylvan? Is it as bad as Huntington? What is so bad about these places?

Here is my previous post about my experience with Huntington and why it is so bad! I hope this clarifies my hate for them!

Thanks, Linny. That's a shame! I did apply to work at Huntington over the summer and the place was so disorganized. They signed me up for training and then called and said I couldn't be hired b/c I wasn't a certified teacher, even though they had previously told me that I could just go through their own certification training program. A mess!

That's too bad that Sylvan is like that, too. I was looking for something part-time that I could do on top of my full-time job so I could stay fresh in the education field while I'm taking my classes to get certified.

I didn't know Sylvan was like that... I considered working for them once.
