It depends on your area, but keep in mind most areas do have a market for reading specialists as reading and math are two huge areas on most state mandated high stakes tests. Many schools also get state money for a "reading van" or reading specialist even when they are a private school. Lastly, kids that have outgrown the ELL programs often still need language help in reading and writing. So, the overall answer is yes, but your market may be saturated.
Absolutely! Check with local schools, parents, and teachers to see if there is a market. If they serve your area, you can also register with several online sites that match tutors with students. I cover a lot of those sites in my hub called How to Hire a Tutor (http://amygillie.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Hire-a-Tutor). Good luck with your search!
Definitely! There are a lot of parents out there who want a reading tutor starting at about 2nd grade (some earlier). They usually (but not always) want someone with a teaching credential and especially a Master's in Education. There are tons of free online activities to use during your tutoring sessions and we usually try to conference in the current teacher to see where the student is starting from and for ideas. Looking for work (through a company)? We offer in-home tutoring in 18 locations. Check our job site at http://jobs.steppingstonetutors.com
