Tutoring Match
 Tip # 12: Profile Matters    

puzzleYour profile is one of your most important tools for attracting tutorials so we want you to know about this summer's changes and improvements to your Tutoring Match profile.

Because Tutoring Match offers parents and students a database of dynamic tutors to chose from, we are asking all tutors who haven't already done so, to complete their profiles to improve their chances of being viewed, requested and matched for tutorials.

Starting August 1st, only those tutor profiles with a Narrative, Education, Testimonials, Availability, Tutorial Locations, Payment Options and Photo will remain activated and visible 24/7.

Tutors with incomplete profiles will still be able to access their accounts, but their profiles will no longer remain visible on our homepage or within any of our 7 search tools. Of course, once a tutor supplies this information, his or her profile will be reviewed, reapproved and reactivated.

If a tutor does not add the necessary information by September 1st, that tutor's account will be deactivated and his or her email will be removed from our mailing list.



  • All profiles will have 2 calendars: one for a scheduling and another for showing availability.    
  • A tutor's Last Login will be added to his or her public profile to show parents a tutor's level of activity and / or interest.        
  • All resume and video / podcast uploads will be reserved for Premium+Plus and Professional Members.   
  • All 330+ Profile Self-Marketing Tools and Number of Views will be available only on Premium+Plus and Professional Members' profiles.          
  • Interviewed / Background Checks / References on file: New icons indicating these will appear on Premium+Plus and Professional Members profiles.
