I'm thinking of setting up a tutoring business for kids trying to pass their 11+ entrance exams into grammar schools. I've heard that these tuition centres have become really popular recently and I am thinking of tutoring some kids myself for the 11+ and for KS2 SATs.
The problem is that I'm only 17- a lot of parents might not trust me to teach everything well but it seems that a lot of 16-18 year olds do tutor people.
The larger tuition centres run by adults charge roughly £20-30 per lesson and the ones I've inquired say that their lessons are one and a half hours long. Since I'm inexperienced (although I have passed the 11+ myself and have good GCSE grades) should I charge less- say around £10 or £15 per lesson and then increase the free after about ten lessons once I gain the parents' confidence?
Also, has anyone here themselves tutored anyone?
But we haven't even met!
