Default Combination of Offline / Online Tutoring

Last year the son of a friend of mine was having problems understanding his Algebra math course and they asked me to help. (My degree is in math.) I met with him and evaluated the situation and we agreed to regular sessions where he would email me his assignments and he would work on them independently first and we would use Skype to review everything. It worked out really well. I got a couple of referrals of other parents who called me and then went by the school and talked with the people in the office out there. It is a private school and the parents spend a ton of money to send their kids there and don't mind spending a few coins to make sure their kids do well. Having references of people that they knew allowed me to get a couple more students. After the initial meeting, everything was done via Skype. Right now, during the summer, I'm not working with anybody, but I know that I will have students to work with this fall.

You might try something like talking with people at a local school, especially an expensive private one and get your foot in the door to develop an "online" tutoring business that starts out offline.

It's an nice idea of "online tutoring business". If you have specialist in any subject then defiantly you need to do some your knowledge to the students those occurring problems. Mostly students have many problems to studying like scientific, mathematics, algebraic, etc. If you have talented in these type of subject then you can give your knowledge by "online tutoring business" to students. This is very helpfully concept for students. I think, it is one type of class related your education. Today "Skype" is a better application for video calling, chatting etc. You need to get initial meeting with students then everything was done via Skype.
