With Tutlings, you can select from a number of tutor profiles - choosing a local tutor who best suits your pocket and your needs. There is no ‘set rate’ which allows both tutors and tutlings the freedom and power to negotiate how often and for what cost tuition takes place. In the traditional model, tuition can cost 3 times more than the amount the tutor actually receives, with the rest going to an agency. Through Tutlings you choose and pay the tutor directly, resulting in a fairer deal for everyone.
And it doesn't end there. Manage your ongoing tuition through Tutlings, which gives you access to session management, payment tracking, calendar, messaging, connection management and so much more.Find out more...
It's been a busy few weeks on Tutlings. With the most recent release came our new Tutlings Beat service, offering a free text notification service for incoming tuition requests and session confirmations. It's been great seeing the service take off and our humble texting service firing away messages to places all around the UK. We've noticed a remarkable increase in response time because of this notification service. Not everyone has permanent access to their email account so it appears to have helped loads of people with being able to respond efficiently to requests within minutes of them arriving.
To the tutors out there - don't forget to spread your profile across all social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. The more people know about your profile, the higher the chances of getting some new requests your way. Tell your friends to reshare you profile page as much as possible - we've found that users who have done this are getting the highest exposure.
Have a great week!
It's a little known fact that we at Tutlings name all of our release cycles. These releases are basically the bundling up of loads of great new features and fixes we're wanting to release to the site. Rather than call them a boring number, we name these cycles. Today we can announce the release of Clementine the Coo!
This is a major release and brings with it some really exciting new features:
Music instrument support now brings about the ability for music teachers around the UK to be able to show exactly which instruments they tutor and at which levels / grades. There are so many people out there looking for music tuition and we hope that Tutlings can now help those tutors out with some new students, as well as provide a great platform for them to manage all their ongoing sessions in a new and efficient way!
We have also introduced a new example tutor / tutling which is added to your profile when you first register. This means that new users to the site will be able to see exactly what a connection will look like, and be able to see the great features that are available to you to manage your ongoing tuition ses...
As we come to the end of the Christmas break I’m looking ahead to what’s in store for me next term. As a secondary school teacher I know that January can be a crazy month with mock exams and coursework deadlines. Pupils can become overwhelmed with the pressure and parents often seek tutors to help out.
A survey commissioned by EdPlace found that parents are spending £6 billion on private tuition each year! Tutlings wants to reduce the cost of tuition for parents by connecting them with tutors in their area directly without charging agency fees.
We now have over 400 tutors and more than 600 users across the UK which means lots of new connections are being made. Remember that promoting your own Tutlings tutoring profile may boost your chances of receiving tuition requests so why not share your profile on Facebook or Twitter?
