Library Book Sale

Went by the local library at lunch and ended up with seven more books for the outrageous price of $3.00. I love these things, and I try to go both times a year they do it.

I tend to collect textbooks. Textbooks mainly on Language or English Literature or Composition, etc. Of course, this is understandable considering my education. But then I begin to wonder why it has to be textbooks. I'm always so drawn to them. I've decided I need to try harder to find a tutoring gig - maybe someday start my own service or my own school or something equally ambitious that I'll likely think about and not do. At the very least, I should try harder to get a tutoring gig.

I'm on Tutorsource, but I haven't had much luck there. I'm planning to run an ad in the paper, post signs at the colleges (there are four here), maybe mail some fliers to the schools, etc. But I'm wondering if y'all know of any other good sites to find tutoring gigs.

I've also posted on Craigslist, but to no avail beyond a whole lot of spam.

Any suggestions?

Yep

But they're all "in" the colleges themselves. We have no major Universities here, just a bunch of little ones. But I'll give it a try nonetheless!

The local University here has a tutoring website. It costs $15 a semester to post, but it's worth it. I charge a minimum of $30 an hour, and that site has brought in thousands of dollars worth of students. Try that! Also, taylor your ad to the courses at that school (give course numbers.)

Also, you can bookkeep for tutoring with a DIY planner.

Physical (Cork) Buletin Boards

Same as above - taylor the ad to the course and try to post it near where the class is held.
