Tutorfair is a website where you can find and book a local tutor. For every student who pays, we give free tutoring to a child who can't.
Our first verified tutor in Manchester!
January 13, 2016
We've had an amazing 2015 here at Tutorfair thanks to our fantastic community of tutors and students! We asked a few of our favourites to share their adventures with us. Here, Frances tells us about becoming Manchester's first verified tutor!
Having finished the Teach First Leadership Development program this summer and starting work for Parent Hub, I wanted to keep involved with the Teach First mission that no child's academic success should be limited by their socio-economic background. Tutorfair provide an excellent opportunity to work with young people in my local area and also contribute improving educational disadvantage across the UK!
A few weeks ago I attended a TutorFair Fast Track Event in London – I saw it was a great way to get more clients and I really wanted to improve my TF profile. I was the first tutor from Manchester to attend, and I’m really glad I did. It really made me feel part of the Tutor Fair community, and it was great to meet the staff in person – Annabel and Sam were so lovely and gave me lots of top tips to improve my profile even further.
I hadn’t worked with any clients before the Fast Track event, but in the last two weeks I’ve booked two new clients and I’m in the process of booking lessons with 3 more! Working as a tutor is brilliant, and I love how easy it is to use the Tutor Fair website – from booking a lesson to getting paid, I feel like the hard work is all done for me! I’m looking forward to taking on more clients in the New Year, and I’ve had really positive feedback for the lesson I’ve already taught. I can definitely recommend attending the Fast Track event, (even making the video wasn’t as cringey as I thought it would be!) and tutoring with Tutor Fair.
Want to book Frances for Science revision? Or perhaps you want to come along to one of Fast Track events? There's something for everyone at Tutorfair!
