Are you in the online tutoring space and feeling a bit stuck? Not attracting enough of the right clients or perhaps you’re drowning in the wrong ones?
I get it, you’ve probably heard those shouty marketing gurus telling you that you have to be all over social media, and it all just gives you the ICKS.
Well, I’ve been there, and I know that for us teachers marketing can feel like tackling a beast!
But there is a way forward that suits your personality type so that you can attract ideal students in a way that feels natural and easy to you.
From being a school teacher submerged in a 60-hour workweek to evolving into a business owner and coach for teachers and tutors, my journey has led me to create something special – “The 2-Hour Tutor” method.
In 2018, I started coaching teachers like yourself to craft tutoring businesses that not only replace but surpass their previous salaries—all while teaching just 2 lessons per week!
The key? Knowing when and who to ask for help – not leaving it so long that you give up all hope and feel forced to go back to a job that sucks all the life out of you
We often wait too long to get the help we need – especially as teachers, we have been taught that asking for help shows some sort of weakness.
But it’s so empowering to recognise when something in our life is not working, then go out and get the help we so desperately need and deserve.
It’s not frivolous or selfish to invest in yourself, to invest in a brighter future for your family.
I see so much wasted time, missed opportunities, and unnecessary suffering, when we delay this for ourselves.
Why? You don’t deserve it? You can’t afford it? You don’t think it will work?
I know firsthand how sabotaging these thoughts can be. Investing in help doesn’t come easy to us teachers, who have had to ‘do it all’ alone for so many years.
This is why I created my book, The 2 Hour Tutor, now available on Amazon, and it’s an absolute steal at just £7.99! (I may be a bit biased, but trust me, it’s a game-changer.)
It gives you a fresh perspective on tutoring that’s all about making life easier for you and your students. This book, drawn from my personal experiences, takes a closer look at the limitations of traditional one-to-one tutoring, which can be a real hassle for teachers and learners alike. The constant cycle of lesson planning, feedback, and all those hours stacked up can be overwhelming.
“The 2-Hour Tutor” is a different approach – by switching from the pay-as-you-go model to one, structured group programme with a clear pathway, you become the ‘go-to expert’ in one field.
You can then charge better rates, but as students make faster progress the overall cost for parents is lower than ongoing 1:1.
Remember, you’re not just selling lessons; you’re selling the transformation and the long-term impact on their lives. By focusing on the end result, you can justify a higher price point, and your potential clients will recognise the value of investing in themselves/children. They’ll understand that the upfront cost of your group programme is an investment in their future happiness and fulfilment.
It’s a win-win for all concerned!
