Tutor requests are one of the ways you can find new students to work with.
Rather than directly messaging a specific tutor, we can help parents post a general request for the subject and level they're looking for support with. We then send this message on to tutors who may be able to help.
You'll be notified about any new tutor requests you've received by email or via the app, and you can check them on the Requests page when logged into your account!
As parents will receive a handful of responses from tutors in response to their request, if you think you can help you should aim to explain why you're the best person for the job. Tell the parent a bit about yourself: what experience do you have tutoring the subject / level / syllabus? Also let them know when you would be available for a Free Meeting?
I’ve been notified of a tutor request, why can’t I see it on my account?
We send out tutor requests on a rolling basis to all eligible tutors. We do this to try and spread work fairly amongst our tutor base, and to help parents get a swift response from tutors who can help.
Once a parent has received as many responses as they asked for (usually 3-5 responses), the request is closed and you won't be able to see it on your account. In quieter times of the year, Requests get snapped up really quickly, so we recommend responding quickly to avoid missing out.
To help you respond quickly, you can save a draft response (which you can personalise to fit the specific tutor request) on your Requests page.
