Coaching for my Tutoring Business

Posted by Michelle Myers on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 Under: Growth (Personal and Business)
It's 2022, and I've decided I'm ready for Big Changes in Big Ways!  I've set my intentions to expand my tutoring business to include more than just 1 on 1 tutoring, which has been my specialty for years.  I've enlisted the help of a tutoring business coach to help me find what direction I want to go in and pinpoint how to execute my plan.

Here are some options I've considered:
-Group lessons (most obvious one)
-Teaching short classes through Outschool (25% fee)
-Finding and hiring employees while acquiring more students to give to them
-Creating a complete course cirriculum to begin offering at a set time during school hours for homeschool families
-Offering a workshop to tutors just starting out or people interested in getting started to begin coaching

There's so much to look into!  I need to start researching CRM platforms to organize and automate admin tasks.  I'm manifesting that the right people will be put in my path to help me in my journey to achieve my goals.

My first homework assignment is to start a Google Doc outlining 10 goals I have for coaching, with the Top 3 being priorities I want to focus on daily.  Other topics to work on include decide what qualities I would look for when hiring another tutor, explore and Google Forms, blog about where I have found my students from early on, think of topics to discuss in a 1 hour workshop for new tutors, and create a post inviting 3 people to build their tutor business with me.  My coach is full of soooo many good ideas!  This year is going to be so exciting!

How it all started:
I have a 3 year old and a 7 year old.  I knew once my kids were school-aged that I didn't want my entire evening filled with tutoring; for instance, today (Wednesday) I'm tutoring from 4-9pm.  So for the past year or two I've been contemplating ideas for working during school hours while making more than I currently do.  But that's as far as it ever went---thinking about it.  Originally I thought about switching to a different career altogether, but those efforts never panned out.  I truly feel like my gift in life is the ability to explain things well, and I just so happen to like high school math.  The Universe has been consistently pushing me towards tutoring since I was in 9th grade, and I keep coming back to it when attempts at other things fall apart.

I learned of a manifestation Facebook group for women from the women's networking group I created called Triangle Women's Network (currently 5k strong).  The group inspired me to consider coaching of some sort to focus my goals and take steps to achieve them.  One coach in the group gave me the idea of joining tutor related groups to get examples and ideas of how to branch out from other tutors.  I also google searched the topic to find related articles.  I found an article on a Side Hustle site about getting started with online tutoring and started reading the comments at the end.  I found someone who had commented years ago about expanding her business and happened to include her email.  I reached out to see if she would chat with me.  She set up a one on one Zoom and told me all the benefits she could offer as a tutoring coach.  I had so many questions, and she was super helpful with addressing them.  It felt so exciting to tap into a resource that was executing the business I wanted to create, so I signed up for 3 months of tutoring with her for a monthly fee.  Mind you, I contacted several other people around the same time.  One of them got back to me, but was too busy to chat.  Even more didn't respond at all.  I believe things happen for a reason, and the right person came along at the right time.  I can't wait to see where I'll be this time next year.
