This white paper addresses the following questions:
1. Initial Planning: It’s important not to go into tutoring blindly, so you need to organize a plan. You probably already know what subject you want to teach, but there’s more to consider than just that e.g. What age groups do you feel comfortable working with? Do you want to tutor students who are struggling with their schoolwork or those looking to study independently? The more you plan before you officially get started, the smoother things will go.
2. Devising a Contract: The contract is as much a commitment by you to teach as it is by students to learn (and to pay you, regardless). They need to be clear on their financial responsibilities, such as how much they’ll be paying, when they’ll be expected to pay, how to make the payments, and what they will pay for missed session.
3. Getting Started with WizIQ: What all you need to run your tutoring sessions smoothly and effectively at an affordable price. How different features like communicating with your students through text, audio or video; creating tests for your students and giving them immediate feedback; recording classes; sharing files with your students and writing on a virtual whiteboard can make your class engaging and better.
4. Marketing: How do you find students in need of your services? Know about different websites, some online strategies to find students outside of WizIQ community.
