Since I've tutored reading before, I am considering becoming a 
tutor with Club Z.  I have heard they are one of the best 
tutoring companies around.  However, the website states that all 
tutoring is done at the student's home which would mean I would 
need someone to drive me to each student's home.  There's no way 
that is even practical since no one in my family would be 
available for transportation.  For me to hire a driver, it would 
cost me more than $60 for one week I would not be just going to 
work at one location and going back home, I'd have to travel 
within my county and possibly across county lines.  The price to 
hire a driver would be way than I am able to pay since that would 
be a good chunk of my paycheck since tutors usually only make 
about $8-10 per hour.  Therefore, would it be acceptable to 
contact the corporate office and explain that I am interested in 
tutoring, but due to my vision impairment would not be able to 
drive to each student's home and ask if they would allow me to 
conduct my sessions at a local library where I can meet with 
multiple students on the same day? And online tutoring is not 
available either, so that's not even an option.  With wyzant, I 
have a bit more flexibility and can meet students wherever is 
convenient, but club Z is in-home tutoring.  But is it worth 
explaining my situation to see if there's something that could be 
worked out?
Thank you,
