The Five Stages of a Tutoring Business

  • Stage 1 Start-Up: You are ready or have just started to build the foundations of your business. You may just be starting, or maybe tutoring is still just an idea.
  • Stage 2 Growth: As you transition from Start-Up to Growth, you have a steadier caseload of students and are starting to establish policies.
  • Stage 3 Stability: You’re looking for ways to improve your workflow and business procedures. At the stability stage, you are fairly confident in your policies and routines for your tutoring business.
  • Stage 4 Systems: Everything is running like a well-oiled machine. As you continue to tutor, you may begin to look for other ways to diversify your income. You may also spend more time in the community making stronger connections with referral partners.
  • Stage 5 Scale: You are ready to scale your tutoring business and make more of an impact (and you’ve got the money to invest to do it!) This might look like hiring a team or pursuing additional opportunities.

Building a business is rarely a straight line, but more like loops, rises, and dips. Your tutoring business may be in any of these stages or in two at the same time as you transition between stages. You need to identify where your tutoring business is to plan for moving forward. So, what stage are you at in your tutoring business?

Now that you know where your business is, get laser-focused on the next steps to propel your tutoring business forward!
