When you are just starting out as an online tutor, the business stuff can seem pretty overwhelming.
Payment agreements, contracts, lesson plans, observation notes and other details can make you feel like you are reinventing the wheel every time you land a new student. That's way more stressful than it needs to be.
The best way to avoid all that hassle is to automate and systemize as soon as possible, and that starts with copy and paste new client templates you can simply tweak and send.
You'll want to include (at a minimum):
📎 A welcome letter
📎 A Contract
📎 Zoom for Parents Cheatsheet
📎 Media Release Form

Esmy Lozano - Online Reading Tutor
I found Joanne's business forms to be very concise and essential for streamlining the business side of my tutoring business. Joanne thought of everything: she hits all angles of the business. If you are feeling unprepared for the conversation with a new potential tutoring client, fear no more; the Business in a Box for Online Tutors is the personal assistant we all need. Your personal assistant is only a click away!
Shifting to online tutoring for someone like me who has only done one-to-one tutoring is daunting. With tutoring now being online, I did not realize how much there is to setting up this business properly for success. That is why the “Business in a Box” will be so useful. The Media Permission slip is a good to have. Plus the conversation templates will be invaluable to have your expertise at my finger tips when I have my first meetings with parents. The documents lend a more professional piece to the tutoring business that I am sure will come across to the parents. I would recommend "Business in a Box for Online Tutors" to other new online tutors.
Rita Santos - Math Tutor
My biggest struggle in starting my tutoring business was keeping track of income and expenses. I’ve tried creating spreadsheets of my own but they just didn’t work. The Money Management Template in Business in a Box is exactly what I needed. In fact, it’s more than what I would have thought of tracking. If you are considering purchasing the product, do it. You won’t be disappointed. It has been a time saver and has relieved my stress regarding the financial aspect of being a tutor. Now I can focus on what I love to do best and the reason I am a tutor — helping children to become successful in math and reading!
