Disclosure: Just a heads up, I do receive payment from Tutorcruncher for writing this blog post. They are the newest sponsor of The Tutor House. I want you to know that I would never take on a sponsor here at The Tutor House unless I thought they were something that you as a tutor business owner would find helpful. Tutorcruncher is here to help you! You are important and I view you as my friend. So read on and see how they can help you.
As your business grows, do you find that you are spending less and less time tutoring and more time managing the financials? Between calendaring students and invoicing families, you are most likely being stretched thin.
Recently, Tutorcruncher contacted me to introduce their tutor business management software. I was impressed with their customer service and how passionate they are about helping tutors find more time in their schedules. Arthur scheduled a software tour (a common event and available to you as well). We met in Skype and he walked me through the software.
I was particularly impressed with how their software could accommodate any size of business. He told me that they have some tutor companies that have over a thousand tutors. Can you imagine the sheer amount of time it could take you to get payroll and invoicing done? Wow! Let’s look over some of the awesome features of Tutorcruncher:
- Invoice generator
