Hi, I’m Melanie Vaughan. Twelve years ago I was on the search for a work at home job. Like many moms, I wanted to stay at home with my children, yet still contribute financially to the family. Being a reading tutor has been a perfect fit. I schedule my students around my own children’s activities, and block out times for vacations whenever the opportunity arises. Over the years, students have come to my home before school, after school, and during the summer. Being a tutor is very rewarding. Along with helping a students succeed and gain confidence, lifelong friendships have been developed.

Why am I sharing this with you There are several reasons. Over the years, I have talked to many people interested in becoming a tutor. A common feeling among them was they didn’t know how to get started. They felt they would know how to tutor once they had a student, but didn’t know how to advertise and deal with the business end. This training manual fills this need.

Two, I am a strong reading advocate. I believe when people learn to read, they have the key that opens the door to all the knowledge of the world. Reading tutors bless lives.

Three, there is a demand for tutors. Education funds are getting cut, which results in more children falling behind. The need for reading tutors is at an all time high.

You don’t need a large amount of money to be a reading tutor. Actually, I can’t think of a business with lower start-up costs. All you need is to be a good reader, believe reading is important, and combine this with The Training Manual: How to Become a Successful Reading Tutor. Then, you will be on your way to making good money and contributing positively to society.

OK, what’s this going to cost? $19.99. In less than two hours of tutoring, this manual will have paid for itself. Plus, you will have your book in minutes. As soon as your payment is accepted, you will be directed to download the e-book version immediately.
