Hello there! If you experience any site or link errors in the next few days, send me an email.
My site is being reconstructed and I don’t want anyone to miss out on a lesson you need while we are changing hosting sites. Thanks for your patience as I build a much faster site!
Business Basics Course
From start to finish, you will learn how to set up and grow a successful tutoring business that brings you joy and freedom. This course has 12 lessons with action steps, a detailed checklist, and an Asana project template. Many free generic checklists are available on how to start a business but not many step-by-step tutorials on how to start a private tutoring or coaching business. Join this course and this fast-growing occupation.
This course is great for teachers, tutors, coaches, or anyone wanting to start their own lessons or coaching business.
Tutor Toolkit - Free Workshop
With the Tutor Toolkit Workshop, you will be ready and confident to tutor, teach a lesson, or coach a client. You will finish with a toolkit stocked with session planning sheets, ways to remediate or extend a topic, tools to build rapport with clients, some brain break ideas, and the confidence you need to tutor or coach clients. Whether you want to tutor as a side gig or a full-time job, you can design and individualize instruction for every learner.
This FREE workshop is great for anyone who wants to tutor, especially those without teaching experience.

Digital learning is compatible with any schedule, and available anywhere you have an internet connection.
Without this course, it would have taken me many, many hours just to think about all of the components to starting a business, much less to complete them!
This course was hands-on, practical, and offers all the tools you need to start your own tutoring or coaching business. All of the material included in the course, from videos to checklists, will aid you in the process of starting your own small business. Jennifer has spent lots of time and energy learning all that goes into starting a tutoring business and has compiled all of that information in an organized, easy-to-follow 12-module course. I would recommend this course to anyone who has thought about the possibility of tutoring or coaching, whether you just want to explore the idea, or you are ready to start your business.
