Business cards are still an effective way to provide vital information for a potential client or a potential referral.

Because you can’t always anticipate these opportunities, you should always keep your business cards on hand. Having business cards with you adds to your credibility and legitimizes your tutoring business.
You can create these on a graphic design website such as Simply create your business card and download it as a PDF. You can then upload your card to a printing service such as: Shutterfly, Office Depot, Staples, Vistaprint.


Also, be sure to have a digital business card that you can forward to a potential client.


The pdf file that you downloaded can be forwarded to your email.  From your smartphone, screenshot the card and save it as a photo on your phone.  Then, you will never be caught off-guard and potential clients can easily save and forward your card with your contact info.

Pertinent information that you want to include on your business card is:

  • Your name
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Subject that you tutor

Keep your business card design simple and eye-catching. Too many words will make it difficult to read and people will toss it in the pile with the other business cards they have on their desk. Take some time to review business cards in this website search and consider which cards catch your eye and causes you to read the information on the card. Quite likely it’s a modern, clean, and uncluttered look.

Here’s an example of our cards:






We opted to have a two sided card so that the front of the card would be clean and easy to read. On the back are the subject areas which we tutor and our expertise as well as information about our tutor training.

Although the jpg file looks blurry in the above photos, when you download a printable pdf file and save it on your phone, it will look crystal clear! You’ll never be caught off guard!

Because you are advertising as a tutor, you want to be sure that there are no grammatical or spelling errors in your advertising.


In some cultures, a business card is considered an extension of you.  Consider that when you design yours!
