How to become a Tutor

Start by obtaining a bachelor's degree in your desired field of study. Although it is not always required, most tutors do have at least a bachelor's degree and teaching certification. Many tutors have more advanced degrees in the particular subject matter they are giving instruction in.

On a day-to-day basis, a tutor will be scheduling future appointments, making lesson plans so they are prepared for each client's specific needs in their next session and brushing up on specific areas they need to be ready for during their next session.
