If you can't find an answer to your question, please contact us and we'll be happy to help!
As each college/university is different, it's best that you contact us. We are more than happy to discuss all of the ways that your Tutor Matching Service can be customized for your school's particular needs.
Here are the basics of what we provide.
First, within 2 business days we setup your school's Tutor Matching Service, such as www.TutorMatchingService.com/Purdue
You can link to this site from your learning center or other website, and we will send you links to see what other schools have done.
Second, we provide you with access to a very easy-to-use online portal where you can add badges to the profiles of certain tutors (if you wish). We will also give you examples of what other schools have done as it pertains to badging tutors.
Third, we provide you with our "Awareness Kit." This is a compilation of flyers, banners, images, and much more that schools have used to promote their learning centers on campus, as well as their school's Tutor Matching Service. We can also mail you custom flyers that you can have at the front desk of your learning center on campus for those students who are looking for more tutoring options.
Fourth, we provide you with all of the data, including information on which courses and subjects students are searching for and booking.
Many of our partner colleges and universities receive calls from parents asking for tutors for their high school children. Of course, tuition dollars paid by college students are not supposed to go towards tutoring high school students, so campus learning centers do not provide free tutoring in this case. This is one of the main reasons that Tutor Matching Service was created. Instead of calling the learning center, parents of high school students often see the link to the school's Tutor Matching Service on the learning center's website and find a tutor themselves. And when these parents do call the learning center, the learning center simply directs the parent to the school's Tutor Matching Service.
Prior to its partnership with Tutor Matching Service, the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), for example, would send an email to all tutors whenever a parent called. This resulted in tons of reply emails to the parent concerning the possible tutoring. Now Caltech simply directs high school parents to their Tutor Matching Service (TutorMatchingService.com/Caltech). This saves time for their staff and is more efficient for the parents and tutors.
By pressing "Sign up with Facebook" you agree to our Terms and Conditions of Use and agree to guarantee your services as a tutor.
Currently, a Facebook account is required in order to use Tutor Matching Service. We built Tutor Matching Service into facebook for a number of reasons, students are comfortable with it as a social network, and already interact with it on a daily basis. Most importantly, however, is that Facebook helps with the identity issue. When a student browse for a tutor on Tutor Matching Service, they can see that tutor's public Facebook profile as well as whether or not they share any mutual friends. In doing so, they get a better sense of the tutor's background and identity prior to meeting up, which increase the overall safety of tutoring compared with other meeting methods such as flyers and craiglist.
