    That's great! Would love to know how you differentiated (in general terms, not to steal your secrets :D )

    That's good to hear. It may be something you did or maybe not, can be hard to tell. Have you ever waited for a bus for what feels like ages and then find 2 the same number turn up at the same time? Tutoring can be a bit like that at times.

    Hi everyone

    What a week! First again a HUGEEEE thank you to all of you. Honestly when I started I did so with excitement, but also with a bucket or two full of doubt. You guys, with your words of encourgement have meant so much.

    The lesson with my first students, which I mentioned in the earlier post went well. What I found amazing was how ridiculously nervous I was. Oh my god, I so wanted it to well that I was damn near shaking like a leaf. But the lesson went well.

    Since then I've had lesson with 3 others students also. That's right I got my 4th student at £25/hour!!! I think that one really opened my eyes that I'm actually going to find the 10 students I originally wanted to find.

    Tsarina - thank you for the kind words, and oh my god when you put it like that what a difference £5 makes. Now that I got my last student at £25, I have a feeling I could have got the first three too. I'm not complaining though, if someone told me I'd be at the stage I am right now I wouldn't have believed you!

    Doctoryes - thank you. I'm definitely not going to act like I'm some expert. For all I know I've got lucky, though I do feel experience and getting your hands dirty really does make you sharper at this. Fingers crossed it's not all luck.

    Armandine - I know right. I wouldn't have thought it myself if I hadn't experienced it.

    Thekizza, AshgarMary - thank you and of course! Check out

    I credit my success to this resource. It's bloody genius, It helped me realise how dumb some of the stuff I was doing was, and instead made me realise what to do instead. I wouldn't have found any of my 4 students without this. It's that good!

    Guys so sorry for going AWOL for so long. I guess I became a bit busier with the tutoring.

    Update: I have all 10 students I aimed to find. And I ended up charging the last few higher than i initially set out to. Please feel free to ask me any questions you have - I'd love to help anyone in anyway I can.

    For those who requested the link (which got removed by mods) - just type in "Tutor Your Way To Freedom" into google and it'll be the first link. In my opinion it's by miles the best resource for anyone looking to become a tutor, and what I put most of success down to.

    I'll type up a proper update on how things have been - but in the mean time feel free to ask me absolutely anything.

    Hi @RWorld1
    congratulations!

    I was wondering...at the moment i live near london and can therefore charge a lot and live off my tutoring (just about) however i would like to move to the coast, a small town perhaps. Do you think there is enough demand to be a full time tutor or would i have to go back to teaching? I can't imagine working the hours i used to plus tutoring in top...but maybe the workload is less? How do you manage?

    thanks
