Hi as I said I am starting my own business. And I would like to know how do I know if a business idea work or not?

before you answer, may be I can give you some of my background.

I was a teacher. I taught mathematics in primary school now the school is getting bankrupt and I need to find a new opportunity.

I have been thinking of starting a private tuition where the targeted group will be Asian family since most of them seem to take education very seriously.

so how do I know if a tuition idea work or not?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

It will definitely work. As you said that you were a teacher means you have ability to teach the students.

You can first start with the small group of students and can expand it gradually.

With your kind of business, get one or two initially, teach them well so they will give you testimonials & tell their friends about you.
Business will come through recommendation if you are good at what you do

Nathalie and John - this is a warning. Please stop messing about on here or you'll be banned.

There is no problem with couples, partners, or husbands and wives, being members in their own right. But it's very poor etiquette for them to "feed" each other and make postings such as you're doing.

Actually, I don't really believe you are two people anyway.

Going back to the original post, are you planning to set up anything online or do tuition in your home or in the homes of the students?
