Hello tutors! One of the frequently asked questions we get is, “How do I get more student bookings?” So, we came up with some tips to help you improve your chance of getting requests from students.
When it comes to your availability, consistency is key. If there are too many changes to your schedule from week to week, first, it may be confusing for your existing students, also, it may be hard for you to get regular bookings. Normally, parents are looking to book weekly, reoccurring tutoring sessions so their children receive consistent guidance on their learning.

Your headline and description tells students why they should choose you. Tell them your style or method of tutoring, as well as your related experience. And don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through – show them you care and want to help! Overall, keep your headline and description simple but precise. Here are more tips!

Having a short introduction video is the perfect opportunity to make a great first impression. Reiterate in your video of your tutoring/teaching style, what subjects you can help students with, and even include something fun about yourself! Don’t stress about not being a skilled videographer, keep it simple and just have fun with this.
