Top tips to improve your profile

Last Updated: Feb 07, 2018 01:15PM GMT
By following these top tips you should have your profile in great shape to get more tutoring work on Tutorfair.

Sell yourself
Your profile description. Have a few paragraphs that describe your experience, aptitude, and motivation for tutoring, as well as including a bit about what you do for fun. Check other tutor profiles for inspiration, and to avoid confusing your clients, it’s best not to include subjects in your headline.

Define your travel area
Draw your travel area.  Choose exactly which Tutorfair search results you want to appear in by drawing an area on your map where you are willing to travel. Head to edit profile to draw it.

Lower your price to begin with
Price. Get started with a low price, then increase with your experience / number of references. Most tutors start around £20 and then find a level they are happy with as they build their profile. You can create individual prices for your clients using Custom Pricing.

Add as many as possible
Subjects and levels. Add the subjects / levels you’re confident you can teach.  If you can teach up to A-Level, it might be that you can teach GCSE, 11+ etc. as well. You’ll only appear in search results which exactly match what you put in, so include all the levels you’d like to teach. Go to edit profile to add them.

Collect as many as possible
References and Reviews. This is one of the most important things for a client when booking. A review is feedback from a client who booked you on Tutorfair, and a reference is from one who has not. Get plenty of both to improve your profile! Head to Request references to contact old clients.

Photo. We like to make sure all photos accurately portray you, and are of decent quality. Ensure you have a clear, smiling picture of your face, and aim for as high quality as possible.

Offer buyable slots, little and often
Availability. If you want bookings, ensure you have at least two available lessons each week. It indicates you are available and also means clients can book you quicker. You can create multiple lessons and stay updated via Availability.

Boost yourself when you want work
Boost your profile. Click “boost my profile” and we will boost your profile in Tutorfair Search results.

Hide and unhide your profile
Hide/Unhide. Hide your profile if you aren’t looking for new clients at the moment, or if you’re going away on holiday! Your current clients can still contact your by sending you a message, but you won’t appear in Tutorfair search results.

Seal the deal
Messages. Respond quickly to messages and you’ll be more likely to get work. Messages are where you communicate with clients, and also where you suggest lessons, which creates a time slot specifically for the client you’re in touch with and makes it easier for clients to book the right lesson with you. Suggest many to get booked up!

Resources = Bookings
Add resources. A great way to get more clients is to write resources that show off your expertise: they read it, and message you about work. Add / write these in My resources.  View instructions

Share your profile. You can personalise your profile by choosing your own URL. This makes your URL more memorable to share with others, and is done via Share your profile.

Be proactive
Job opportunities. You can take the initiative and respond to requests that clients post on our jobs board. Find one that you’d be willing to tutor, apply with a friendly message, and you can get yourself more work!

Refer others
Referrals. If you’re stuck with a customer query that you’re not able to do, then you can refer to another tutor from your message to earn 6% commission. Come to our events and make friends!

Add your bank details
Payment. You’ll get paid 7-10 days after your lesson is complete. Enter your bank details in edit account
