In the beginning... there were tutoring companies... and then;
"...Let there be websites!..."
Tutorly was created to make it easier to connect students to tutors, and tutors to students. Before Tutorly, one of the only ways to get access to quality tutors was by dealing with an agency, who are notoriously expensive and often take a huge cut of the payment. This leaves only a small portion for the tutors, who are often university students that don't have fulltime work. Another problem with this approach, is that agencies can often be hard to deal with and require students to get tutoring once or twice a week no matter what. In some cases, parents of high school students have been made to pay for tutoring, even if they don't want it for their child that week!
Tutorly allows people to connect with one another on their own terms. Students and tutors negotiate their own tutoring schedule, costs and whether or not extra sessions are in fact required, without dealing with an intermediary. Rather than being assigned any old tutor, you can choose one that's right for you! Try out our search function today for free. If you're not sure whether a tutor will be the right fit, why not give them a go and find out! All out tutors are required to offer a first lesson guarantee, if you're not satified, they won't charge you!
At the moment, Tutorly is free to use for both tutors and students, we do however have an optional payment gateway which adds a very small service fee to any tutoring you pay for using it. If you are happy with the site, please consider using this facility to help us keep the lights on! If you’d like assistance or advice on anything related to supplementary education, please don't hesititate to get in touch.
