Tutorfair is on online marketplace to find a tutor for your child. But for every student who pays, a child who can’t gets tutoring for free. They partner with inner city schools that have a high proportion of students on free school meals. The class teachers choose the students and Tutorfair tutors go into the school and tutor those students for free. A very socially responsible way to book tutors.
Tutorfair’s mission is:
To make the growth of tutoring good for everyone.
To make the quality of tutoring easier to measure and recommendations easier to find.
To help more inspirational people get into education.
To inspire more children to learn
Tutorfair uses the power of the Internet to provide a reliable source of data-based recommendations on tutors, enabling people to have more choice and make better decisions about tutoring than ever before. Because Tutorfair is a marketplace and automates the booking process, which is still manual in traditional agencies, they can afford to take smaller commissions. No other tutoring company opens-up and professionalises tutoring in the same way which means tutoring doesn’t have to be the preserve of the privileged few.
Lily is 8 and although she scored 3a in her end of Year 3 assessments, she still finds maths tricky. I did (do?!) too; of all my GCSEs I worked the hardest for my maths paper and still only managed to get a C (the lowest of all my GCSE grades).
Lily finds mental maths tricky as well as the 7, 8 and 9 timetables. I booked Serena (if she’s available ask for her, she has the patience of a saint!) for an hour of extra maths support.
She gave Lily some great tips of how to remember your times tables, how to use your brain and not your fingers, a little into to long division and the hour she was there flew by, I even learned a few tricks!
Lily said she found Serena really ‘patient, friendly and calm’ and still uses the tips she was given now (3 weeks later). Tutorfair work with children as young as Lily right up to adults in further education so whether your child is preparing the 11+, GCSEs, A-levels or needs help with further education, Tutorfair will have someone to support and accelerate their learning.
Which leads me nicely to competition time! Would you like to win five hours of free tutoring for your little one? To enter simply click here.
