Serve More Students is a think tank for tutoring center owners and directors.  We provide resources to help tutors build and grow their tutoring center.  We also help tutors scale their tutoring businesses from a one-man (or woman!) show into a successful and profitable tutoring center.

Meet Hannah

From the time I can remember, I always wanted to be a teacher.  I taught “school” every afternoon as a little girl.  Whether it was to my stuffed animals, my younger sisters, or my pretend students.  I did my real homework on my make-shift overhead projector, which was really just a stack of books that I pretended was projecting onto my bedroom wall.  I took attendance, wrote names on the board, and always gave Wanda silent lunch.  (Who was Wanda?!?!?)

Fast forward to 2005. I graduated from college with a degree in Elementary Education and landed my first teaching job. Over the next several years, I taught 3rd and 5th grades and served as a math specialist. I also graduated with my master’s degree as a Curriculum Specialist. I loved teaching, but I knew that teaching was only a stepping stone. My goal was to be a superintendent.

I moved into administration and became an assistant principal. I was climbing the ladder. I also started working on my doctorate. After a year in administration (which I loved by the way!), I took a year off to finish my doctorate. Fully expecting to return as a principal, life had other plans.

I tell you all of that to get HERE.

This is where my journey in the tutoring world began.

Once some of my former students’ parents found out that I wasn’t working, they asked me if I would tutor their children.  I politely said no.  I mean, come on.  I was getting a doctorate degree.  Why on earth would I want to tutor?  (That was seriously my thought process at the time.)  Eventually, I did take on ONE student.  One student only.  It was a special circumstance I told myself.  He had experienced a tragedy in his life and it was the least I could do.

Well, that ONE student turned into two and then three and then four.  Before I knew it, I was spending every afternoon traveling around to people’s homes or to the library to tutor kids. It was then that I realized that I was on to something. There was obviously a need for a tutoring center in our town. So, I rented a small space and turned my side gig into a legitimate business.

I hired another tutor to work with middle school kids while I worked with the elementary students.  In less than six months, we had taken on so many students that I could no longer continue to tutor and run the business.  So, I hired additional tutors to work with our students while I focused on the management side of the business.

That was in 2012.  Now, I own a six-figure tutoring center.

You’re probably wondering, can I do that too?  Is it really possible?

The answer is YES!  Yes, you can.

I don’t live in a big city.  It’s just small town USA.

While I’d love to tell you that it was all fun and games (well, most of it was), there was a huge learning curve.  I learned everything through trial and error.  Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t.

That brings me to TODAY.

Owning a tutoring center brings me so much joy. It challenges me to think in ways that I never imagined I would.  But it’s worked.  So, I’ve done something right.

And that’s where you come in.  I’m going to share my secrets with YOU so that you too can serve more students and enjoy the many benefits of owning a tutoring center.
