A hypertext markup language (HTML) tutor provides instruction and guidance to people who want to learn how to use HTML, a common web creation language. The chief requirement for becoming an HTML tutor is learning the language yourself and gaining an expert level of proficiency. You may also seek a certificate, diploma, or degree in an effort to encourage employers and potential tutoring clients to take your knowledge and skill seriously. Once you are ready, you can seek a job with a company that hires HTML tutors. Alternatively, however, you can seek your own clients as an independent HTML tutor.
