Black Tutors get less work from Online bookings

January 07, 2020

Having tutored, trained and taught young people and adults for over 30 years, I have noticed that Black Tutors get less work.

As qualified and effctive as I am in my work as a Tutor, I have found over the past 5 years, a decline inthe amount of work I get from online portals such as Tutorfair, and others.

The requirement for photos, which has come into play over the 5 years, has impackted on this greatly.

It is interesting that enquirier do not even reply back, to application.  Prior to adding my image to my online portals, I was gaiing more work than I could manage, as it was my attendance and tutoring that showed off my skills.

It would be interesting to find out what people are looking for, skill, knowledge, experience or race!

Clearly emotional inteligence plays a part in how people chose their tutors, or am I wrong?
