We plan a big business in small steps
Consider how many students to start with, what age category and level of knowledge of the language. Naturally, at least tentatively think of how each category of clients can be carried away – each of your lessons should be delayed so that the student wants to come again and again, and his knowledge would be noticeable. Decide on the desired cost of an hour of work.
Based on this, write a “catchy” ad and place it both on the network and in real life. Do not neglect social networks, special exchanges for tutors, service catalogs and simply classified sites of your city and even country.
Next – to work for your own pleasure. Money can be received on an electronic wallet or simply received on a card. Do not forget to use chat, listen and use the video broadcast. Exchange of study files and a demonstration of the desktop are very convenient Skype features that allow you to observe what the student is doing on the other side of the screen. You can watch films in English with your student, listen to the original music, connect a third party to communicate with a tutor, or even use conferences, etc.
Using only the free features of the World Wide Web, minimal investments (paying for the Internet and a computer, although it is permissible to work even in an online cafe), you can organize a promising business using Skype and your own intellect.
