Private tutoring is an expanding and growing business opportunity, either as a full-time job or one that many do part-time on the side. Whatever your speciality - be it teaching piano lessons, as a personal tutor or perhaps as a vocal coach - face-to-face time with your student is just one of the elements you need to keep on top of.
Managing your business as you go along is also a big responsibility and can push you to overwhelm when you have a large number of students to see each day. Keeping on top of your admin tasks can be a headache but Pocket PA was created and designed to get rid of that overwhelming feeling!
The web-based app is a one-stop solution to help any self-employed micro-business owner and is the perfect place to start when you are looking at apps for tutors to support them each day.
The app has a fantastic diary and booking system which is all colour-coded and simple to use and update. The latest version even has an online booking system which can be integrated into your website or social media pages with a couple of clicks – which means you don’t have to be tech-savvy to be totally up-to-date and using modern tools!
Having an online booking system also gives you the opportunity to have slots directly booked in even whilst you are working or fast asleep! Working smarter not harder is the goal for Pocket PA and that is just a small fraction of what it can do for you.
Seeing who still owes you money at the end of the week or month is easy when you look at your income dial as there is just one button to click which takes you to a list of all those who haven't paid in full with the amount due showing next to them.
Understand your finances instantly with colour coded dials to see how much you're earning every week, month & year

Keeping on top of the finances is another regular headache when you are busy teaching, and it’s vital that you know and understand your level of bookings each week and how that translates into earnings. Pocket PA uses 1-click visual dials so you can see exactly how much you will be earning every single week or month or year so you can manage cash flow and understand your money.
And it doesn’t stop there because we know that as a business, you also need to track your expenses. That couldn’t be simpler with this powerful business tool because it lets you snap, sort and store all your receipts in one place, and they are backed up and saved on the cloud for easy access 24/7.
So even English tutors can be great at numbers!
When your students forget or miss appointments, it can also create stress, frustration and wasted time, so with Pocket PA, you can set up automated email reminders or SMS reminder messages to be sent to your clients or students for any upcoming appointments.
Messages can be personalised to keep it friendly and once you start sending them, we are sure you all notice a marked increase in your earnings because of a fully booked and attended diary!
Having everything all in one place means you don’t have to manage your workflow using lots of different apps which don’t talk to each other!
And whether you want to offer your students and their parents an option to go cashless, it's easy through Pocket PA.
You can choose to take in-app card payments without needing a card reader. Alternatively, collecting online payments couldn’t be simpler or faster when you send a personalised invoice, because it will have a clickable link that your clients can pay online and that gets paid directly into your account, and then registered onto your income dial automatically.
Either option is a breeze and totally simple to do in Pocket PA.
Teach yourself the first lesson of managing your business on the go by using Pocket PA and keep one step ahead of even your brightest students, however smart they are!
