Credentialed or not Credentialed: That is the Question


People who want to be  an online tutor today often wonder whether they have enough credentials.

This is a great question to ponder.

It kind of goes along the lines of, “Do I have enough knowledge to help those seeking my services?”

It is absolutely pivotal that people be knowledgeable in the area that they tutor in.

However, this no longer means that they must be credentialed.

The world wide web has given us many other opportunities to get the information that we need.

We may get our knowledge from

  1. Udemy
  2. A Business Coach
  3. Support Groups like the Ultimate Support Group for Online Tutors

We are no longer limited to choosing a university to give us knowledge.

We can become just as knowledgeable from a wide range of resources.

Kerstin Cable, a German/English Language tutor from Fluent Language says, “My own experience has also been that being interesting, unique and qualified by evidence is way more important than acquiring external credentials.”


I couldn’t agree with that statement more.

What resources do you use to gain the knowledge that you need to start your online tutoring business?
