Being a tutor should be simple, but you know it gets complicated - fast!

You love teaching, but the business side of being a tutor can be draining.

You have a passion for helping others, and maybe even some experience in the classroom. Tutoring seemed like a perfect way to make some money on the side, supplement your income or maybe even something that could be your full time job… until it gets complicated!

You start having to make decisions about how you want students and parents to treat you. Students show up late, and you have to decide how that affects what their parents pay. You might even have students who don’t want to be tutored, and are happy to express that!

Right now it’s time consuming, stressful and not as profitable as you want it to be, right?

Win more students and take your tutoring income from coffee money to vacation money – and beyond.

When I started tutoring I...

frustrated with tutoring

  • Was excited to start tutoring and find that first student
  • Fell short of how much money I thought tutoring would make.
  • Watched students constantly reschedule their sessions.
  • Loved seeing my students make progress.
  • Struggled to make time to find more students.
  • Worried I’d lose students by having more rules.
  • Felt unsure what to focus on to grow my tutoring clientele.
  • Felt disorganized.
  • Wondered if parents and students really take me seriously.

Do you feel this way too?

Three Sons

My little guys, the reason I started tutoring!

I’m Adrianne, and my tutoring business did not start out smoothly. In 2009, my husband was suddenly laid off while I was expecting our third son. Talk about pressure! My tutoring was suddenly how we could buy groceries and keep the lights on.

One day, I had a student not show up for tutoring. I sat there waiting and waiting. I called, no one picked up. I lost out on enough money to buy us some milk, fresh produce, and bread. I had no idea what to say if someone didn’t come to tutoring.

This parent did finally recognize that she had missed tutoring, and was apologetic, but for the rest of the school year they kept skipping sessions with only an hour notice. And that wasn’t enough time to fill that spot with another student. I felt stuck.

I didn’t say anything because I didn’t think that speaking up would help.

At the end of the school year, this student’s parent asked about our plans for summer. I mentioned that my husband didn’t have a job so we had plans to do as much camping as we could stand. With horror on her face, she asked me, “Why didn’t you tell me? All these times we could have been coming to tutoring. Our money could have helped your family.”

That was the moment that I realized that not only would these families not leave if I had more guidelines for our time together, they would welcome them. That summer I wrote my tutor policies, and my tutoring went so smoothly and helped my family so much that it became my career.

As I made small but powerful changes to how I worked, everything changed:

Tutor Scheduling

  • I earned more money every month
  • Parents and students were happy to respect my time
  • My current students told their friends about me, and I gained even more clients
  • Cancellations and rescheduling stopped being a problem
  • I had fewer problem students, and more loyal students I worked with year after year

Now I regularly have to turn away students because I’m fully booked.

Word got out about my business because parents love knowing exactly what to expect. Now I even have a website to feature all of what families can expect when they work with me, so by the time a parent reaches my contact page they’re already sure they’d like to work with me. It’s less work for me, more certainty for them, and I get to enjoy a flexible dream job.

Isn’t that powerful? That smooth, easy experience of being a tutor is exactly what I want for YOU.

Andrew Vickery“I LOVE the pricing guide! ALL of it!  I loved how you laid out what part-time and full-time hours looked like so that you don’t forget vacation, holidays, sick days, etc. Setting an income goal and knowing what to charge to hit that goal was absolutely key to my success!  Thanks so much!

You can’t create a thriving business with free worksheets and blog posts. Tutoring isn’t any different.

If you’re ready, you can find more students, take home more money each month, learn all the basics of tutoring, create and enforce policies with confidence, and instantly unlock a designed suite of customizable policies, forms, and marketing documents.

It’s everything your tutoring business needs to take flight, all in one place.

My name is Adrianne Meldrum, and I created the Profitable Tutor Framework because it’s what I wish existed when I first started. It helps you stop stressing about business so you can focus on getting closer to where you want your tutor business to be.

It helps you find more students, learn the basics of how to start tutoring and understand exactly how to enforce policies in a positive way that parents welcome and respect. It’s about creating clear boundaries with yourself and your clients, and having answers to questions before they’re even asked. And it lets you answer all those nagging questions like, “What do I charge?”, “What forms should I have parents fill out?” and “How can I expand my tutor business?”

I’ve packaged over 10 years of tutoring experience so you can ditch the generic contracts, guess work, and cancelled sessions for good.

The Profitable Tutor Framework is an online course and business in a box, tailored to your specific needs as a tutor. You’ll be able to take a student with confidence, find ways to get more students, and make sure you’re charging enough for your work.

How are profitable tutors different?

They have a business system that works. (You just found it!)

The Profitable Tutor Framework is a step-by-step online course overflowing with the right resources you need to thrive.

The Profitable Tutor Framework makes working with my clients quicker and more convenient. When I sign up a new client, I can immediately go to my policies and cover them with the new client. Everything is already organized. All I had to do was add my company logo and they were ready to go. Since they are fillable PDF files, my clients can enter their info on the computer and send them back without having to print. Huge convenience for me and my clients!

The Profitable Tutor Framework has helped me put a professional front to my clients. I use the policies included in the Framework all the time, especially the Payment Policy. Just this week, I had to enforce it when the teenagers of a client failed to show up for a session without notification. I politely explained to the parents the Payment policy which they had agreed to and situations like this is why the policy was adopted. Not only did they agree, but they actually scheduled another session and apologized for their teenagers missing. Those teens were early to the session the next time.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Will this class pay for its self?

Yes! If you put the ideas in The Profitable Tutor Framework to work, you will gain more students, have better student retention and earn more as a tutor. We make no guarantees because – just like anything else – individual results vary based on factors we cannot control. However, the intent is that the course teaches methods that allow most students to earn the fee back quickly.

How can I tell if this is the right fit for me?

The Profitable Tutor Framework is for tutors that are new to the tutoring business.  If you’ve been tutoring for awhile and are satisfied with the money you are earning, this class will not be a good fit for you.

Think of this class as an extension of The Novice Tutor eBook.  We go deeper into the topics discussed in the book.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you have less than 5 students?
  • Have you been making less than $40 per hour?
  • Are you constantly rescheduling?
  • Do you struggle to get payments from parents?

If you answered yes to most of these questions, this course is a great fit for you.

I don't have a Kindle reader. How do I read your book?

No problem!  The book comes with four different formats for your reading pleasure.

  • ePub (opens in iBooks)
  • Mobi (opens in Kindle)
  • PDF (all computers and devices can open this)
  • MP3 audio copy

How long is the course?

This is a self-paced course with six modules.  You can go at whatever pace works best for you. However, the videos are short and aimed at helping you get started quickly. You should have new students and an improved business by the end of the course if you do your homework.

There are customizable forms mentioned. How do you edit them?

To edit forms, you’ll need Adobe Reader, which is a free program. If you’d like to significantly change the forms you can do that through Adobe DC. You can access Adobe DC with a monthly subscription (about $15) that you can cancel when you have finalized the document.

You do not need to purchase Adobe DC before purchasing the course, and it is not needed to edit the documents – only to heavily rework them for advanced users.

Video tutorials are included for making changes to the forms to make sure it’s easy for you, and as your teacher I’m here to help you!

I've already bought your eBook. Can I get a discount?

Of course! Forward me your receipt of the eBook and I’ll send you a coupon code to apply that will be equivalent to the value of the book. For example, if you bought it from Amazon, you’ll get a $10 coupon. If you bought the audio and eBook bundle here, I’ll give you a coupon code for $37.
