Update Your Tutor Profile

What is your Tutor profile?

Your tutor profile is all the information contained within your profile area in the Tutor Dashboard. This information help potential students decide whether or not to schedule a lesson with you as a tutor.

Why update your tutor profile?

Firstly, a poorly filled-in tutor profile will not attract any students. When students search through the tutor profiles, they rarely even look at profiles without profile pictures. When they do click on a profile with a picture and then end up on a profile page with limited information, they invariably click away.

Secondly, your profile information makes it easier for students to search for tutors according to certain criteria. If a student searches for a TOEIC tutor for instance, Only tutors who selected the TOEIC as a subject they can teach will show up in the search.

Thirdly, as of the end of this week, only fully filled in tutor profiles will be shown on the front page of ESL Tutor. We will delete all tutor profiles that are not fully filled in by the end of March.

Schedules Now Available

Schedules Now Available

ESL Tutor is partnering with a third-party scheduling software and the integration is finally done and ready for tutors to take advantage of. We believe this will make scheduling lessons a lot easier for both students and tutors.

Advantages of the new scheduling system.

Calendar integration

Get notified any time a new appointment is booked, check your schedule right from your phone, and even synchronize with the calendars you already use, like Google, Outlook, iCal or Office 365.

Share your calendar

Share you calendar on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. This means that students can now book lessons with you on your social media profiles.

Embed your calendar

Embed your calendar in WordPress, GoDaddy, Vistaprint, Photobiz, Zenfolio, Joomla, Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, and Drupal.

No mix-ups

No embarrassing scheduling mix-ups. Calendars auto adjust for students’ time zones, which means that students can easily cancel & reschedule themselves, and you’ll never be left scratching your head trying to remember if it was for 2 o’clock or 4 o’clock.

Full control of your availability

Set your regular working hours as well as irregular hours. You can even click on specific hours within your calendar and make those hours unavailable.

Lesson types

Choose the types of lessons you’d like to teach. Make sure that the lesson types you choose in the scheduling software correspond to the lesson types you’ve selected in your ESL Tutor profile so that you can be more easily found in  searches on ESL Tutor.

Please read the Tutor Guide for more information on how to use the scheduling software.
