For references from clients outside Tutorfair:
Log in and click "Request references" from the menu on the left, then type your referee's name and email into the form.
The body of the message has been pre-populated with some standard text, which you can edit. There's no need to edit the text in [square brackets] as our system will populate this for you.
Click "send" and your referee should receive an email with your request and a link taking them to a form to complete your reference.
You will also receive an email from us asking you to email your referee directly to check whether our system-generated email made it into their inbox (and not sitting in their spam folder).
Once your referee completes your reference, it will appear on your profile.
For reviews from clients who have booked you through Tutorfair:
Send the client a direct link to fill in a review for you. The link text will be:
[your profile link]#reviews
(To get a link to your profile: hover over "my account" and click on "view profile")
Send this link to the client in the messaging system, asking (politely!) for a review and explaining that this will help future clients choose which tutor to book.
If the client is logged in, this link will go straight to the review form, which looks like this:
Once your client fills in your review, it will appear on your profile.
