We believe that education is the most empowering force in the world, through creating and sharing knowledge, building confidence, and breaking down barriers to opportunity. Through tutoring we hope to make a real difference to the lives of our students, not only in the short term through achieving academic goals, but in the long term by cultivating a growth mindset and a curiosity for learning and development. We have hired you because we believe that you have the right attitude, skills and experience to help us achieve this goal.
To ensure that we work as effectively as possible together to provide this service to our students, we ask you to please take care to understand your obligations as an Evolutionary Tutor:
We get a number of requests for tutors every day with students or their parents looking to start right away. If we take too long getting back to them, they are likely to look elsewhere for tutoring services which means they miss out on being tutored by you! Therefore, its really important that you reply to our texts promptly and keep us informed when:
When you are allocated a new student you will be assigned to a new "job" on TutorCruncher and asked to give that student (or their parent) a call to introduce yourself and confirm the time of your first lesson. Once you speak to the student or parent and the time of your first lesson has been confirmed, make sure to:
Once you have had your first lesson and understand the kind of help your student is looking for, proactively set up an arrangement that works for you both. This could be:
Make sure to log any future lessons on TutorCruncher once they have been agreed.
You will be paid each week for any lessons that you have marked as "complete" on TutorCruncher in the previous week. We issue our invoices to parents and payment orders to our tutors based on the lessons you mark as "complete".
This is an important step that is separate to logging the lesson. Marking a lesson as "complete" means that you are confirming that the lesson took place as you have described it. If the lesson you had planned differs from the lesson that ends up taking place (e.g. the actual lesson went for longer than the planned lesson), you can edit the lesson before marking it as complete.
Google Reviews are one of the most effective way for us to reach other students and parents looking for tutoring services, which then means we have more students to allocate to you!
Once you have had 4 or more lessons with your student, this is a good time to start thinking about asking for a Google Rating and/or Review. This is also a bonus opportunity for you, as for each student that leaves you a:
Asking your students for Google Reviews is also a way for you to build your online profile as any reviews that your students provide will be linked to your Evolutionary Tutors profile on our website. We have found that tutors with Google Reviews linked to their profile consistently get requested more by parents and students. So its a win-win situation! You get an extra $10 or $20 per review, PLUS this review is linked to your profile and increases your likelihood of getting more students!
As university students we know how varied and unpredictable your schedules can be, so please let u know via text or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if:
As our tutors you are our greatest asset! We value your thoughts, feedback and creativity and encourage you to be as involved as you like in helping us make Evolutionary Tutors a better service for both our students and our tutors. For example:
There are no dumb ideas – so if you have something to share, please send us an email 😊
