One of my cousin's kids needs to learn a year of Latin in in like a month and I offered to help her out, which got me thinking about the possibility of telling kids what declensions are.

How does one get into that sweet tutoring system? It seems like the kids who are getting tutoring in Latin have parents with lots of money to spend on the roots of difficult SAT words and the like.
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

Good question. I'm not that familiar with the tutoring circuit - it's a whole weird world in there. Many of the friends I have that do do private tutoring started with a tutoring company. Often the clients will want to cut out the middleman eventually, or recommend you to their friends sans middleman.

That website Alex mentioned looks good, though.

(My PhD possessing friend who's super smart but who unfortunately can't get a professorship goes through Wyzant. He does get clients, so it's working for him.)

Didn't you used to tutor through a website, James?

Yeah, Wyzant is your best bet for starting off. You can set your areas of expertise and desired pay rate and then things go from there.

I did used to work for tutor.com. It was not a pleasant experience.

Way back in 2007, I briefly interned at Partners with Parents ( http://www.partnerswithparents.com ). I just worked in the office, but it seemed like a pretty good gig for tutors, since you get connected to rich Manhattan families. It could be worth trying if you're still in New York.
