As far as I can make out, you have to attract enough students to pay you a fee that you pay (part of) to the college for the privilidge. What's left over from the fees paid, you get to keep. The college sets a "cap" on the per-student fee chargeable, dependent on course duration and/or any certification available. IIRC it's a "pay the college before they'll announce the course" policy, so you'd have to be pretty sure you can attract enough victims. I've often thought about doing this, as the language curriculum is pretty much High-school French, High-school German or High-school Hindi/Urdu at the moment. I've tutored one-to-one before, but never taught a class, so I'm rather nervous about it. ************************************************************* This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
