In virtually every community there are many national tutoring centers. However, there are few if ANY in-home tutoring services that carefully match qualified tutors with children in grades K-12 in need of one-on-one attention. The key to Laurie Hurley's (founder of HTB) success is that she found a niche that is invaluable to parents trying to assist their children do better in school. The convenience of a pre-screened tutor coming to their home and tutoring from their childrens' school curriculum has proven to be beneficial if not essential in today's competitve society.

Do I need to have any kind of teaching experience in order to be successful?
|Laurie Hurley : HTB Founder
Absolutely not! You will be contracting the teachers and tutors, who are experts in their field. As an HTB owner you will be managing the day-to-day operations of interviewing tutors and advertising and marketing your services. You are the broker, making the perfect match for a family.
How does an HTB earn income?
Revenue is earned by splitting the fee for tutoring services with your tutors and teachers. The potential for making money is virtually only limited to the amount of students for which you are willing to provide tutors.
What kind of skills do I need to successfully own my own HTB?
We have found the most successful people are those that can organize and manage their time effectively. The ability to relate to parents and their childrens needs is extremely important. A sales and marketing background is not a necessity, but it is helpful in getting your message out to your community about the unique service you are offering. Even if you have no prior business experience though, our package gives you all the tools and training you need to open a business that is profitable and caters to parents that are concerned about their childrens education.
Is HTB a franchise or MLM?

You never pay us any royalties or additional fees outside of your one-time payment for the HTB manual and package. We are continuously adding materials to enhance your business; however you are under no obligation to purchase anything other than the initial package you ordered.

Do I need to rent or lease office space?
No! HTB is a home-based business. All you need to get started is a desk, dedicated business phone line, fax, computer, access to the internet and printer.
How many hours a week will I have to work?
This business can be run part-time or full-time. Some people choose to build their clientele slowly and devote only three or four hours a day, Monday through Friday to their business. Others want to produce revenue immediately and devote eight hours a day to establishing their new company and work some weekend hours. Its really up to you how much time you want to invest and what fits best with your lifestyle.
Where does the tutoring take place?
All of the tutoring is done in the privacy of the childs home. Clients love the convenience of this service because they do not have to drive anywhere to have their children tutored. Kids love it because there is no peer pressure to perform. They are in the comfort of their own home with the undivided attention of a dedicated teacher/tutor.
Are tutors employees or independent contractors?
All of my tutors are independent contractors. We provide you with the appropriate paperwork and information as it relates to working with independent contracts versus employees. However, you make the ultimate decision as to how you will classify your tutors.
Why would a tutor want to contract with an HTB?
Many tutors do not want to have the expense of advertising for students. They also appreciate working with families that have signed a tutoring contract and have been pre-screened by you. The tutoring is consistent (we suggest at least one hour a week per subject per student) and they can pick and choose their clients and make their own schedules based on how far they want to travel and what subjects and grades they can tutor. Tutors love the flexibility and the constant stream of business being offered to them.
Why would a family consider using an in-home tutoring service instead of a national learning center?
Our experience has been that children learn better from individualized, private instruction. One does not get that at a busy learning center. You will be taking the time to get to know the student and family and matching them with a tutor who can help them with their academic needs and match personalities and learning styles. This one-on-one attention is effective and offers parents the convenience of not having to drive their children anywhere to get quality, individualized tutoring.
Does HTB provide a curriculum for their students?
No we do not provide a curriculum. Your tutors will be tutoring from your clients school curriculum. Textbooks, worksheets, projects, homework packets, etc. must be brought home for every tutoring session.
Do I have a limited territory?
Since HTB is not a franchise, there is no geographical or population limits to the area you choose to service. The bigger the area, the more revenue you will make.
HTB is a wonderful opportunity for enterprising parents to work at home while providing a crucial service to their community.
