How Tutors-Live Works

See also: Getting Started as student, Getting Started as tutor, About us, Subjects, Frequently Asked Questions

The goal of Tutors-Live is to provide an easy and flexible way for students and tutors to connect.

  • A student is anyone who wants to learn more about a particular subject -- for school work, exam preparation, job orientation or self-improvement.
  • A tutor is anyone who knows a particular subject and is ready and willing to transfer his or her knowledge to others. Tutors may teach as their primary job, or as part-time extra work.

Students can search for tutors by subject, language spoken, study level, location of the tutor, price range, and many other criteria. The starting point for students is the Find tutors page.

In the same way, a tutor can contact a student. The starting point for tutors is the Find students page.

The first contact between student and tutor must be made through the Tutors-Live internal messaging system. After that, student and tutor are free to choose their preferred means of communication (email, Skype, WhatsApp, telephone, etc.).

Anyway, we recommend the usage of Talkini, a web-based platform which supports the full cycle of interactions between student and tutor (scheduling of lessons, video conference with automated payments via credit card).

All registered users can contact up to 2 users per day. Premium users can contact up to 10 users per day and have priority in search results. (see Becoming a Premium User).

Tutors-Live does not charge a commission on tutoring sessions. Student and tutor agree independently on price, schedule, mode of teaching (online or in person), mode of payment, and any other details.
