I am a new tutor and would like some advice on how to get students. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be very many students out there who want or need tutoring in my area but there are an abundance of students in other areas.

I am unsure how to approach this problem as I have no transportation to other places. Does anyone have any ideas?

My name is Jaffer, I am a student at APSU, a senior with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics. I chose to become a CS major because, well, I love video games and I've always wanted to make them. That is why I really got into C# and XNA, as it makes the life of a game programmer significantly easier. I've used C, C++, Java, C#, Ruby, Fortran, Erlang, F#, VB, HTML, PHP, SQL and who really knows what else, and this is over the course of just 2 years really.
So, onto the biggest fallacy a new programmer probably believes: Fallacy: Learning my first language was hard and took a long time (it usually does!). I don't want to learn another language because it will take forever.
Truth: Learning a programming language is not about memorizing syntax or semantics, nor is it a test of if you can place each semicolon...
