Tutors do not need teaching licenses, but you should consider registering your business. Remember, any money you make from tutoring is business income. It must be declared on your tax return and the appropriate social security, state and local taxes must be paid.
You don’t need a teaching degree or any specialized training to be a tutor. What you do need is knowledge of the subject matter and the ability to explain it in a way that others can learn.
Tutoring can be done at the client’s home, at the tutor’s home, or in another location, such as a school or library. The internet has made it possible to tutor online using video conferencing tools, so you can tutor clients who live outside your location from the comfort of your home.
