As a military spouse for thirty two years, I have helped my family move 10 times. I have been, and still am, until my husband fully retires, a “trailing” spouse. With regards to establishing a portable tutoring career, Kimberly Fujioka’s eBook, Trailing Spouses Guide to Getting Money Now! Tutoring, gently, thoroughly, and firmly puts the trailing spouse in the driver’s seat. Since 2010, I have been a nationally certified CRLA (College Reading & Learning Association) Tutor. I am confident that all of the steps covered in Kimberly’s book, i.e., establishing rapport, setting goals, evaluating progress, would be verified by CRLA. Over and above that, Kimberly has chartered, explained, and provided online tools that can build an effective virtual classroom, which allows the tutor to work from home with small groups or individuals. She also details many useful steps and resources for advertising a tutoring business. Along with my gentle reminder that a free-agent tutor will need to manage state and federal taxes on earned income, I highly recommend Kimberly Fujioka’s book as a bridge to a lucrative, satisfying, and vastly beneficial tutoring career.
