Tutors and Trainers
In high school, take a well-rounded college preparatory curriculum. If you know the field that you'd like to tutor in, take as many classes as you can in that subject. For example, if you already know that you want to eventually tutor in math, you should take algebra, geometry, calculus, and any other math classes that are available. Taking speech and English courses will also help you hone your communication skills, which will be very important when you work with students. Taking a foreign language, such as Spanish, will help you to work with those who do not speak English as a first language.
