8. What happens after I register?

Your information will be entered into our database and will be available in a professionally designed personal webpage. Students will be able to see your information including education, qualifications, comments and the subjects you have selected.

The initial student/parent request will be forwarded to you by After that, you will be in direct contact with your student and will not be involved in further interactions between you and that student. You will be able to give your references, discuss your rates, availability and tutoring style.

Please be sensitive to the needs of the student. They have contacted you because you have the expertise they are looking for. Proper personal conduct and professionalism are important characteristics of a qualified tutor.

9. How many contacts should I expect to receive?

The number of contacts you receive will depend on several factors. These include location, subjects, your education, experience and qualifications. If you're an experienced tutor or a teacher, live in a metropolitan area, and teach popular subjects such as English, Maths, Science, and Social Studies, you can expect to receive more contacts.

Many of our tutors receive their first tutoring request within a few days of registration. Some of our Premium Tutors receive dozens of tutoring requests every month.

10. Working with Children Checks

If you are planning to tutor children then you will need to obtain the appropriate Working With Children clearance. Each state and territory has their own procedures and requirements. This government website provides a good overview of the current requirements - Working With Children.

Be sure to check back with us on a regular basis.
