Mentorship Movement: Tutor Route CEO Stephanie Tran is Inspiring Educators to Focus on Mentorship

what’s going on here

CEO and Founder Stephanie Tran is a champion for educators, entrepreneurs, and women. She founded her  6-Figure Tutor Masterclass in late 2021 to help all these groups. Her course teaches educators how to turn their tutoring side hustles into full-time businesses and make far more money than they could in traditional teaching roles. 

Today, Tran is a mentor for so many, but she never had a business mentor in the education field of her own. When she started in the business world, she searched for a more experienced person to chat with, ask questions, and learn from. But she didn’t find them. So she decided to become that person for the next generation of education entrepreneurs, or ‘edupreneurs,’ as she calls them. 

“I want to empower education professionals to push towards their personal and professional goals — to believe in themselves as they redefine themselves as entrepreneurs by beginning with a successful side hustle,” Tran said.

For her, mentoring isn’t a casual monthly coffee; it’s a powerful movement in the business community and one of the most effective tools for nurturing budding entrepreneurs. Now, the 6-Figure Tutor Masterclass helps others to learn the exact method that Tran used to become a six-figure earning tutor. 

As someone who got the formula right and made a very comfortable living as a teacher, Tran did not need to share the secret of her success with others, but she did it in the spirit of mentorship. And now, she has helped dozens of education professionals, teachers, and counselors to launch their legit tutoring businesses in 30 days guaranteed.

Stephanie’s Journey

Looking at her now, an intelligent CEO with a winning formula for success, you might not imagine that she intended to be a professional figure skater. As a child and young adult, she trained relentlessly and turned pro, traveling across the continent to train and compete. She won armfuls of trophies and received accolades from some of the country’s most respected judges and reviewers. 

But her story took an unexpected turn in the form of injuries that ended her budding career. She was devastated. But, after the sadness subsided somewhat, she went through something more daunting: an identity crisis. She was unsure who she was without the constant rush of practices, competitions, costumes, and the rest. 

She also was unsure what to do next. But, in college, she began tutoring and realized how satisfying it was and how much she could help others. So she found a new path — and soon realized she could share that winning path with others. 

A Mind on Mentorship

In Tran’s mind, the benefits of mentorship are many. First, having someone to look up to can be the tipping point in realizing your dreams. This is based on what you learn from them and the validation that someone you admire sees something important and worth nurturing in you too. 

For those searching for a local mentor, she suggests reaching out to experts in your field and gaining ‘sweat equity’ by working at their side in any way you can to earn while you learn. For Tran’s part, she is a mentor for each student in her masterclass. Tran’s ‘Tutorpreneurs’ can earn while they learn by working with her company and put their strategies to practice as they build their own brands. 

In fact, mentorship is the heart of the masterclass’s blueprint. The course begins with Tran handing you the written and recorded tools she used to become a top tutor through her Tutor Route app. It continues with building community among the students and Tran, gaining an accountability buddy, and interning. Then, it moves on to launching your brand to the world, enabling the group to celebrate your wins and collaborate to help you land your first major client. 

Mentoring and the Masterclass 

The masterclass is built for busy professionals looking to build a six-figure side hustle teaching or counseling clients. It allows you to do much of the work in your spare time, advance at your own pace, and enjoy live coaching with the mentor herself. 

“Take a leap of faith in your side hustle while I hold your hand and mentor you each step of the way. That is a promise,” she said.

The masterclass includes understanding and interpreting your minimum viable brand (MVB), identifying and attracting a target market, gaining confidence as a consultant, closing deals with clients, managing business operations, creating a strong social media presence, and more. 

Tran is teaching educators daily that they hold the power to change their lives as well as the lives of their students. Due to her far-reaching impact, her genuine mentorship will influence educators for years to come and create their legacies as mentors.
