I'm having difficulty figuring out how I should go about this. I'm in my late 30s and I've been a social worker for 4 years in NYC. I went to a low tier city college. I did horrible on the SAT. I'm interested in practicing the SAT. I don't feel pressured as I did in high school and I believe I could score well. Afterwards I would like to tutor students on the SAT. I also love Bio and Human Anatomy and Physiology. I feel I could study these subjects and tutor in this area as well. Now, I didn't go to Harvard or any top school. Nor do I have experience as a teacher. So is tutoring a realistic goal for me? I'm also, concerned that I will only be able to charge peanuts because I don't have the glamorous education background. So my questions are: 1) How do I prepare for the SAT since it's been a long time since I was in school. Do I have to start off from scratch and relearn high school math and then prep for the SAT? Or can I go to straight to practicing the SAT? 2) Will I be able to draw clientele even if I don't have a glamorous education background? As long as I score well on the SAT and can connect with students? For some reason, I believe I have a knack with connecting with students from my background as a social worker. Also if I could only make $15-20 per hour it wouldn't be worth it for me. I would like to charge a lot higher and ideally even start a tutoring business. As a social worker I don't bring in a high salary so I would like to supplement my income. Are these realistic exceptions? I don't have any tutoring experience. And I understand the saying "don't put the cart before the horse" but I also don't want to waste my time.
