Tutormate is an online platform which helps tutors find new students by allowing you to advertise your tuition services. We help you to manage all of your bookings in one place and process payment so you can focus on tutoring and grow your business.
We aim to find the best tutors and work closely together to help find them as many students as they would like, while providing an excellent, professional service for students.
If you're a student looking to find out how much tuition costs through Tutormate, please have a look here for more information.
If you're a tutor, creating a profile on Tutormate is completely free and there is no charge to you as a tutor.
To make it as simple as possible to compare your rates with other tutors, we allow you to set your own hourly rate. From this, we charge students a platform fee of between 15% and 25% of the lesson cost.
Students are happy with this because they know that we make sure that they always receive the best tuition possible and benefit from ongoing support form ourselves and our site.
The rate of our platform fee is based on how many hours of tutoring you have taught with us:
25% - 1-99 hours taught
20% - 100-299 hours taught
15% - 300+ hours taught
The rate we charge falls over time, to reflect our commitment to reward the best tutors as they work with us to grow their tuition businesses.
In between these rises, we will advise you when to up your rate as you become a more popular tutor and are receiving more enquiries. This ensures that your rate of pay will continually improve over time.
We expect tutors to charge the same rate as they would independently and to respect the work we do in helping them to gain new students, manage their business and to process payments.
We always welcome applications from tutors who wish to be listed on Tutormate. Click the ‘Become a Tutor’ link in the banner at the top of the page to create an account, and then fill out your profile.
We will check your application and ensure that you represent yourself professionally to students. To ensure quality, we vet every tutor and only accept those we feel can offer a great service for learners. Make sure that you add your relevant qualifications and grades, as well as writing a full bio which outlines your tutoring or teaching experience and your subject expertise.
In-person sessions can take place wherever you and the student agree. Generally, tuition will take place at either the student’s or tutor’s home. You can set your own travel policy, which will be communicated to students on your profile page. If appropriate, you could also organise sessions in a public space such as a library or a coffee shop convenient to both you and the student.
Tutormate can help you to find students:
Through your Tutor Profile
Once you have signed up and your profile is "Live" on the Tutormate website, students will be able to see it when they search for a tutor in your area. There is an option on your profile for them to send you a message to enquire about tuition together.
You'll be sent a text and email notification as soon as a student contacts you, so you'll never miss a message. It's then easy to follow the link in the text or email to get back to the site to reply and organise your lessons together.
