Starting a Tutoring School in Hong Kong

Starting a tutoring school in Hong Kong can be a rewarding venture, but it requires careful planning and adherence to regulations. Here's a breakdown of the key steps:


  • Market Research:  Identify your target audience (age, subjects, location) and research existing competition.  What makes your school unique (USP)?

  • Business Plan:  Develop a business plan outlining your concept, financials, marketing strategy, and staffing needs.

  • Funding:  Estimate startup costs (rent, renovations, equipment, marketing, licensing) and secure funding if needed.


  • Company Registration: Register your business with the Companies Registry.

  • School Registration:  Obtain a "Certificate of Registration of School" from the Education Bureau (EDB). This involves meeting specific requirements for premises, curriculum, and staff qualifications.

  • Visas: Ensure you and your staff have the appropriate visas to work in Hong Kong.  Tutoring yourself might require specific visa restrictions.


  • Location: Find a suitable location with proper clearances from relevant departments (Planning, Fire Services, Buildings).

  • Staffing: Recruit qualified and experienced tutors with appropriate licenses if required by the EDB.

  • Curriculum & Materials: Develop a curriculum aligned with the Hong Kong education system and source appropriate learning materials.

  • Marketing & Promotion: Develop a marketing strategy targeting your chosen audience through online and offline channels.
