Hi, I’m Steve Eno, a New Canaan parent. Like many parents, I know first-hand how difficult it can be to find a good tutor. Last year I tried word of mouth, asking the school, asking teachers and a few of those online tutoring services. It was hard to find anyone at all, let alone a great tutor who knew the curriculum and how to teach at the right level. I knew there had to be a better way.
So I decided to start Teachers Who Tutor. I match parents and students with a certified teacher who tutors the subjects they teach. Once I’ve made a good match and an introduction, the parent/student and teacher take it from there: agreeing on a price, scheduling sessions and payment.
For parents and students, Teachers Who Tutor is the easiest way to find a great tutor. Just tell me the subject and when/where you want your tutoring sessions. I match you with a great teacher and you contact them directly to get started.
For teachers, Teachers Who Tutor helps them find new students to tutor. Often teachers aren’t sure how to attract new students they can tutor close to where they work and/or live. Other tutoring services charge a middleman fee of between 20% and 50%. But with my service teachers keep 100% of their hourly rate and decide how they want to be paid.
So how much does this cost? For teachers, nothing. For parents I charge a $100 matchmaking fee. Depending on the subject and tutor, hourly rates range from $75 to $150 an hour. I guarantee my service: if scheduling doesn’t work out or you’re not happy with your tutor’s style, I will find you a new tutor or refund your matchmaking fee. It’s that simple – you’re satisfied with the match or you don’t pay.
