What are our members saying?


Can you imagine how it would feel to have a tutoring business that lights you up ?

  • Having the freedom to focus on what each student needs to reach their highest potential

  • Choosing what to teach and how to teach it based on your expertise and skill set (and what you ENJOY doing)

  • Developing close relationships with families because you truly get to work as a team

  • Earning an income that makes you feel like your expertise and experience is truly valued

  • Building your business around your life instead of fitting your life around your work responsibilities

  • Experiencing the freedom to be in the driver's seat and make decisions that work best for you and your students
Educators make great business owners! But does learning about the "business side" of things make you a little nervous?

What if:

  • You could tutor without worrying about having a bunch of cancellations this month?
  • You knew how to find new students easily?
  • You knew how to build relationships with professionals in your community who send you referrals on a consistent basis?
  • You had a community of people just like you, reaching for the same goals and helping each other along the way?
  • You felt confident in how much you charge?
  • You had help and guidance in making business cards, brochures, and setting up your website or social media page?
  • You had people to show you the ins and outs of running a small business?
  • You knew what to focus on now- and what can wait til later?
  • You had trusted resources, done-for-you templates, and people who have "been there" to give you advice and support when you need it?

"Everything I’ve done with my tutoring business has been backwards. In fact, I didn’t even realize this fact until being part of Jill and Emily's Facebook Live Business Sessions this year. One of the most profound moments for me was when Jill encouraged us to have a set of policies already drawn up and in place. Knowing that I have these policies in place, and that my clients have a copy of them before we even begin to work together, is paramount to my being able to stay in business for the long haul. That’s the goal, after all, to be able to do this for many more years to come. If I don’t think of myself as a business person, nobody will —and then where would all those kids be!?!"

- Christine Gurzler

"I took Emily and Jill's class this summer to help me get started tutoring, in addition to my full time teaching job, and it was 100% worth it! It really helped me lay the foundation for a strong business that I am loving and will be able to grow beyond a side business when I want to."
