Starting a Private Tuition Agency

A private tuition service agency is a business that provides tutoring, test preparation, and coursework in a wide range of academic subjects to students.

This business model has existed for many years and continuously to improve their successful track record with time.

Students from school can go to these agencies to find a suitable tutor or private home tutor for them. Tutors and students will sign an agreement with the tuition agency before they start the private home tuition teaching process.

In general, parents choose and pay their children's tuition fees by themselves.

In general, parents choose and pay their children's tuition teacher with the help of the agency. However, with high agency fee and other things to consider, the parents often do not know how to choose the right tuition agency.

Why Private Tuition Agency Has High Demand?

It is not easy for parents to find the right teacher or right tutoring for their children because of a variety of reasons, such as finding someone who is qualified and has a good teaching ability also with affordable tuition rates.

Moreover, some parents may want someone who can teach at home or have flexible time to help them with their children's studies.

So many parents turn to a private tuition agency that has teachers that are experienced and qualified in tutoring just like school teachers.

The high demand for private tutors makes the tuition agency a lucrative business. There are dozens of private tuition agencies in the country you can apply for if you're an aspiring tutor.

If you don't want to go through the hassle, you can always build your own tutor page at Cudy. Click here to see how it goes.

However, if you have experiences and determination to be more than just a part-time tutor, creating your own agency is not a hard task to do. This article will give you an idea of how to start your own private tuition agency.

How to Start a Private Tuition Agency?

1) Have your website or blog

Create your website or blog and register it as a private limited company. To register a company, you need to prepare documents, such as Company Incorporation Form, Memorandum of Association (MOA), Shareholders' Agreement (if any), Director's Resolution (if any), Business Registration Certificate (if any), Income Tax Return, Company Bank Account, etc.

The MOA is very important because it contains preliminary information about your company, such as its name, address of its registered office, business nature, etc.

After you have set up your company, get an e-mail address with your company's domain name.

For example, if your company name is ABC Tutors Limited, you can get an e-mail address like [email protected] or [email protected], for instance.

2) Apply for an internet domain name and hosting

After you have set up your company, you need to apply for an internet domain name and hosting through the online form.

Internet domain names are like phone numbers or e-mail addresses; they are the unique identification of websites.

You can buy a domain name from any of the accredited registrars on the internet. Some examples of domain names are abctutors.com, www.abctutors.com etc.

You can also use free web hosting services such as WordPress, Blogger, or Google Sites.

3) Create your website

Now you have your domain name and hosting. Next, you can create your website. You can create a website using any available free or paid website builders such as Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, etc.

You can use a free CMS (Content Management System) such as WordPress, Joomla, etc.

If you are not familiar with website building, you can hire a web designer to do it for you. Hiring a web designer is not very expensive; it will cost around $1000-$10,000 depending on your website's complexity.

The good thing about hiring a web designer is that they will be able to update your website when necessary and save you time and money in the long run.

However, suppose you are tech-savvy and have some basic knowledge about HTML and CSS. In that case, it is also possible for you to build your website yourself without having to hire anyone else to do it for you.

Many free tutorials on the internet will teach you how to build websites from scratch using HTML and CSS.

4) Create an online shop (if necessary)

If you want to sell some tutor books or tutor materials to your students, you can create an online shop using a shopping cart such as Shopify, OpenCart, etc.

The good thing about Shopify is that it has a mobile app for both iOS and Android devices.

Suppose you want to sell any physical products (e.g., textbooks, stationery etc.). In that case, you can use Amazon Fulfillment Service to fulfil your orders.

5) Create your tutor’s profile

Now you have created your website and online shop (if necessary). It is time for you to create your tutors' profile page on the website. There are two ways for you to do this: manually or automatically.

If you have enough time and skills, you can manually create the profile page; otherwise, it is better for you to use automated software.

If your tutor website is built using WordPress or Joomla, some plugins will help you do this automatically; however, if your website is built using Wix or Weebly, there are no plugins available for you to do this automatically.

It is also essential for you to create your students' profile page on the website. The process is similar to creating tutors' profile pages.

6) Set up a payment gateway account

Suppose your tuition agency charges students any fees (e.g., tuition fees). In that case, it is a good idea for you to set up a payment gateway account.

Payment gateway accounts, such as PayPal, make it possible your students can pay their fees through the internet instead of paying cash directly in person. You can sign up for a PayPal account here.

Find the Best Way to Start

If you are interested in starting an online tuition agency, make a list of all the items and equipment that you need. You can also make a plan for your advertising and marketing strategies.

You should make sure that you have enough capital and experienced tutors to support your business until it is profitable. You should try to find the best way to start your own private tuition agency.
