What do you/did you look for in a SAT tutor?
For those who have hired tutors, in the past, please see if you can help me with some questions I have!
I am a senior in college - have been tutoring (for private tutoring companies) for over 6 years. I am an independent contractor at the company that I currently work for – it just finds me a client who needs tutoring and, in return, it gets 50% of the hourly rate - it does not provide resources or training. So, basically, I am paying for advertising. I do not normally have a problem with this, but lately I have not been getting many clients from them so now I am considering advertising on my own, though I am not completely sure how to go about this.
My questions are: I’m sure that you had many options when hiring your tutor. What made you go with the one you did?
If you found out about the tutor through an advertisement rather than a referral what did the advertisement say that compelled you to make a call to the tutor?
I was considering advertising in the classifieds in local magazines – is this something that you looked at when you were looking for a tutor?
What about yard signs at busy intersections and craigslist postings?
Any other advice on how to advertise to get a parent's attention and what media/where to advertise?
