Tutor Best Practices: Credentials Folder

Image Here at Tutorfair, we like to spread good ideas.

One thing that might not be obvious to those starting out their tutoring journey is the importance of having a folder to keep all of your credentials papers in.

When you go to your first lesson with a new client, it’s best to have the following documents to show them, in a presentable format.



  • Identification (copy of passport)

  • Educational Certificates (Degrees, A Levels etc.)

  • DBS Certificate (formerly CRB check)


We recommend having these in a display folder such as the one below. The one that Hannah is modelling costs a little over £4 from Rymans, and is something that the best tutors on our site are using already.

It will demonstrate professionalism to the client, keep you more organised, and give additional reassurance to the customer, especially if they haven’t asked to see it.
