About the lesson
strategy, law of electronic commerce, strategic management, entrepreneurial management, venture capital, new venture initiation, business application development (programming), internet technology, computer networking and communications, systems analysis and design, World Wide Web design, and Business transformation/reengineering. My lessons often use the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for structuring and content purposes. I have ten years in e-commerce tutoring.
Entrepreneurial Studies: The entrepreneurial studies major teaches you how to recognize, evaluate, and respond to new business opportunities. You learn to use your own business or franchise, or to apply your creativity and energy to increase the productivity of an existing business. There are opportunities to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the corporate world, socially focused projects, venture capital financing, and a host of other possibilities. The typical courses in this major include foundations of entrepreneurship, living the entrepreneurial experience, new ventures and the business plan, entrepreneurial finance, managing a business, family business, social enterprise management, investor relations and funding, business and tax planning, entrepreneurial marketing, new product design and development, etc. Concentrations typically involve new-venture creation, entrepreneurial finance, corporate entrepreneurship, family-controlled enterprise management, franchise, distributorship and license ownership, and entrepreneurial economics. Students must advise as to what their purposes in seeking tutoring is so that lessons can be prepared with meaningful content. Students may request lessons in the core of business courses that is required of this path.
Human Resources: Majors in human resources (HR) management study employment-related issues that affect people in the workplace. You study topics such as recruitment, staffing, training, performance management, compensation, labor relations, and health and safety, in order to support the goals and strategies of business organization. Typical courses in this major include organizational behavior, managing individuals and teams, recruitment and staffing, occupational safety and health, employment law, statistics, compensation and benefits, training and development, performance management, employee and labor relations, international human resources management, etc. Lessons may be in business administration courses such as marketing, finance, accounting, statistics, information systems, and organizational behavior. Lessons may also be in the strictly human resources courses such as employment law, training and development, recruitment and staffing, employee and labor relations, international human resources management, etc. Lessons often consult the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) for structuring and standardization and planning of lessons.
Insurance: This is actually a major and its focus is to help you learn how to help people and businesses manage risk, recover from losses, and plan for the future. Majors study the legal principles underlying insurance; the types of insurance (including liability, life , property); employee benefits and pensions plans, the role of insurance in financial planning; risk assessment and loss evaluation; the preparation of insurance contracts (underwriting); and the way insurance companies operate. Courses in this major include principles of insurance, property and liability insurance, personal insurance, insurance operations, corporate risk management, insurance accounting, surplus lines and reinsurance, life and health insurance, employee benefits, estate planning, financial planning, and ethics of insurance. Concentrations include risk management, property and casualty insurance, employee benefit planning, estate planning, and financial planning. Lessons may be on the course that are involved in the major, projects, presentations, independent study, theses, etc. Lessons often take their standardized form from the American Institute for CPCU/Insurance Institute of America and American Risk and Insurance Association. I have been tutoring insurance for five years.
Marketing: Marketing is concerned with the process of developing customer relationships, uncovering business opportunities and delivering products and services to buyers. Marketing majors learn to analyze customers and their needs, and to make decisions about product design and quality, pricing, advertising, selling, and distribution. Courses in marketing include principles of marketing, retailing, professional selling, sales management, consumer behavior, marketing communications/promotion, e-commerce/internet marketing, services marketing, product development and management, international marketing, marketing research, marketing management, marketing strategy, advertising principles, etc. Concentrations are usually in market research, e-commerce, advertising management, and product management. Marketing focuses, more generally, on business measures that have a central role in company performance and success,, such as customer satisfaction, sales revenue, and market share. There are two types of marketing that are studied. The first is business-to-business marketing, products such as computers, copying machines, steel, and chemicals are sold to other businesses. There is another type – business-to-=consumer marketing. In which individuals buy products such as appliances, cars, packaged goods, and services such as insurance and banking. Lessons may be in courses in marketing principles and marketing management that teach you to develop and implement plans to market products and services. Lessons may be in market research – in using surveys, experiments, test markets, and other techniques to obtain the information needed to make marketing decisions. Lessons may be in courses in sales management focus on the psychology of effective selling and the recruiting, selecting, organizing, training, and motivating of salespeople. Students must advise what their tutoring needs are before lessons can be effectively prepared and scheduled.
Management and Organization
Students do not select individual tutors through my company WillTutor. There’s only one tutor. My company is not an agency. Tutoring costs are $40-60 dollars per hour. You cannot participate in a free tutoring session before commiting to the service. There are no refunds for tutoring lessons. All transactions are final. I send a lesson plan prior to the scheduled lesson and have the tutee sign off on it; though no refunds exist - all lessons are final transactions.
WillTutor operates out of what some consultants refer to as "a virtual office" by which the company's administrator means a worksite outside of the traditional office in which people still do the work associated with a traditional office. Tutors are entrepreneurs, i.e., they are self-employed. People who work in a virtual office can be either telecommuters, who work outside of a corporate office for an employer, or entrepreneurs, who are self-employed. The ‘virtual’ in the term ‘virtual office’ implies the use of technology. Tutoring services do not require a status operative from traditional worksites because the paperwork involved does not require the staffing needs, mailing needs, liabilities potentially incurred from the activity of tutoring itself, etc. What a ‘traditional’ office is becomes vague when we start to ask what establishes its minimalist identity.
WillTutor has filed 1099 independent contractor agreements with several tutoring companies, e.g., Parliament Tutors, TutorSpree, WyzAnt.
In what follows I sketch the different segments or platforms by which tutoring can proceed as a service. These include the online medium/modality, the in-person (in-home, in public venue, et al), and the combination of the two.
The online format is accessible to clients who are interested in tutoring lessons with subject-matter as ancient languages, symbolic logic, calculus, proofreading, and English Language Arts. (WillTutor has provided services for clients in these subject areas and has experience with handling their respective curricula.) Online lessons include a virtual whiteboard or blackboard where tutors and students can write, draw, and work through problems together. My students and I communicate through video, audio, and texts when tutoring online. Lessons sometimes include practice quizzes and assignments that test and reinforce comprehension of the material. I send online progress reports by which students can track their overall progress. There are additional resources for continued learning outside of tutoring lessons (study guides, blogs, pre-recorded lessons, etc). WillTutor has a calendar on which clients can make their appointments ((concealed information) a blog ((concealed information) a facebook page ((concealed information) and an instagram account (tutor_will). The blog posts review sheets per subject. The subjects that the company offers are posted anew every year on the blog. For actual online tutoring the company uses different software. There is no set program that is in use at present. Some options are Google Checkout, (concealed information), Google Classroom, Socratic, etc. Any of these make possible ‘online’ tutoring. Tutoring online is best when conducted using the materials common to all devices (i.e., common to phones, desktops, laptops, tablets, etc). The online platform for tutoring in general has a lot of structures. If there are organized structures for online tutoring, they are to be general enough that allows for multiple capabilities. Google’s structures allow for much of the requirements of tutoring: Google Voice, Google Classroom, Google Domains, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Hangouts, etc. Apple also combines the needs for tutoring also - FaceTime, Office, etc - though not as comprehensively as Google does. So, Google is preferable because it can be used via multiple devices (cell phone, television, computer, laptop, iPad, etc).
For all subjects does the in-person tutoring lesson provide an opportunity for clients to work hands on with a tutor. The two main platforms for in-person tutoring are in-home services and public venues. For the former, WillTutor insists on conditions, stipulations, provisos that lessons must be conducted under – largely for the safety of both the tutor and the client. WillTutor is going to have its clients sign an agreement before lessons are conducted stating that all transactions are final. Some companies, like WyzAnt In-Home Tutoring, have similar guidelines and stipulations. The public venue options include either public or private libraries, classrooms, student centers, university campus junctions, and other areas that allow for tutoring lessons.
Tutoring via phone is an option for clients interested in essay writing, having papers proofread by WillTutor’s tutor(s), ELA (more generally), reading classical languages, and ESL. Combined segments of online tutoring (e.g., Skype, Vyew, White Board) and phone allow tutors and clients to engage in both platforms simultaneously; this allows for two to yield more than one. In most instances, some sessions are conducted solely online, others solely over the telephone with Skype. Socrative? Google classroom? WillTutor has conducted lessons in the ancient languages (both Greek and Latin), symbolic logic, calculus I, proofreading, GRE: Analytical Writing, and other subject areas via this mixed segment option; our clients have found this method of tutoring paradigm satisfactory. WillTutor tracks all of its phone logs. Voicemails are transcribed through the Google Voice account.
