A virtual jobs noticeboard where you can find tutors, post jobs and read its useful resource on private tuition. Recommended by The Good Schools Guide.
The site is also an excellent resource for useful information and advice on all aspects of private tuition in the UK. The company's founder, Henry Fagg, who has over ten years' experience in the industry has a lively blog keeping his readers abreast of recent developments and news.
Parents and students can either search for a tutor in their locality using this free service or visitors can browse by subject. Read profiles of tutors (their qualifications, experience, charges etc) and pick out those that will travel to you or who will tutor you online. You can contact as many as you like, without the need to register. The Tutor Pages stresses that it does not perform background checks on tutors listed; it does, however, provide comprehensive guidelines to follow when choosing a tutor. In 2011, in collaboration with a British university, The Tutor Pages will be publishing the first ever child protection research into the UK private tuition industry.
The Tutor Pages is a portal for articles on all subjects relating to tutoring. Visitors to the site can read articles written by each tutor listed on the directory, all of which helps with the decision process in finding the best person suited to the task. For those thinking of embarking on a career, download its acclaimed free e-book, a comprehensive guide on how to become a private tutor in the UK.
The tutor forum is a new addition to the site for tutors, parents and students where they can discuss tutoring related topics.
If you can't find an appropriate tutor, you can leave a request for one on the Tutors Wanted virtual noticeboard. Here, The Tutor Pages is making full use of social media in its search for such tutors. Tutors matching the requests can reply to these jobs via the site, free of charge.
