A Great Way to Beat the Economy!
Guest Post by The Teacher
As a first year teacher I quickly began to realize that I needed to supplement the salary given to me as a teacher. I started working at a very well known tutoring company in our area. There I worked at a table with 3-4 students and brought home $10 an hour. Well after a year working there I got a great gig working for a local family making $20 an hour and stayed at home so that I could spend more time with my family. The problem which I faced was finding parents who wanted tutoring who couldn’t afford the $80 an hour fee, but would consider the $20-40 an hour range for one on one tutoring.
That is when I found Kidzmet. Kidzmet is an awesome site and in simple terms it is an online database of Teachers, Mentors, Parents, and Students who all want the same goal- Success for Students. How it works is simple. As a teacher you pay an all time membership fee- which right Kidzmet is running a special for only $9.99 per year!! Then you register yourself. You can list your teaching style, preference of subjects, and a general location. Students and parents can then peruse a list of names in the Kidzmet database to find an appropriate tutor for their specific need.
For teachers Kidzmet offers a 45 day Guarantee or your money back. It can’t get any better than that!! Kidzmet isn’t only for teachers though, but for parents and students as well. It is FREE to parents and students and it allows parents an additional option after being denied for SES (Supplemental Educational Services) tutoring. By signing you and your child up for a free account, you can view available candidates for one on one tutoring that is well under the cost of well known tutoring companies.
As a teacher, you can really take advantage of this all time LOW $9.99 and start to take a hold of your extra income in a failing economy. You will easily make up the cost of the membership in your first tutoring session and benefit from it throughout the rest of the year!
