FAQs

What can I expect to gain from Build?

Build begins with a week-long entrepreneurial bootcamp and continues with a full year of support, empowering you to become your own boss. We provide the tools and technology you need to build and optimize your tutoring business, and we actively find students relevant to your expertise.

Following the bootcamp, you’ll have access to the Clark platform, which will help you organize your tutors’ and clients’ information, log sessions, invoice and receive payments, and cut down on time spent on admin work.

What type of person is Build for?

Build can help you if:

- You’re a part-time tutor looking to gain the knowledge and clients to make a confident transition to full-time tutoring.

- You’re just getting started and need help finding clients and establishing your business.

- Your business is established, and you’re looking to add ways to build your online presence and clients list.

- You work for a tutoring business, and you’re ready to become your own boss.

Can I join Build if I don't live in NYC?

Definitely! Clark is based in NYC, but we work with tutors all over! You can take our online classes from anywhere, and recordings are sent out the next day.

Why Clark?

We have tons of experience! We work with some of the top tutoring companies in the US. They trust us to handle their tutor and client relationships, session management, and invoicing, all through the Clark platform.

We focus on tutors and their clients. Unlike impersonal matching platforms, parents and students trust us to effectively match them with tutors who specialize in the subjects they need.

We’re invested in your livelihood. After you’ve completed the bootcamp, Clark will immediately begin matching you with students. You’ll keep 85% of the profits from the students we successfully match you with, and 100% of the profits from your existing clients and any new students you gain along the way.
