I am thinking of starting a tutoring business. Not doing it myself, but matching tutors and students and taking a percentage of the hourly rate. I want to use certified teachers with criminal background checks, and I want to cover K to university, and esl, languages and learning disabilities. My biggest challenge right now is finding tutors...and figuring out how to not get ripped off by them. How should I set it up? Have the client pay the tutor and take my percentage? Have the client pay me and then I'll pay the tutor? Should I have them sign a contract so they don't take all their students and run? Any help and advice would be great! I'm trying to think of ways to work from home and think this might be it!
