Best ways for tutors to find students:

If you are a tutor, there are a number of things you can do in order to increase the chances for getting responses from students. If you follow the given points, you can easily be contacted by students with potential interest in your teaching:

1. While filling registration form, keep in mind to:

 - Add one or more photos to your profile. This gives professional touch to your profile. Researches show that profiles with photos get 50-60% more responses. Add your profile photos showing your face clearly. Do not upload any animated pictures or, pictures of celebrities, pets, scenery or objects.

 - Write a detailed and comprehensive description in profile description field. Its important to clearly mention your key skills, mode of teaching (e.g. online, one-to-one), qualifications and your achievements. To attract more students you can offer first class free or at discounted rate.

BharatTutors suggests you to:

 - First write the description in MS word, read it 2-3 times. Do not write the whole description in capital letters. Correct any grammar and spelling mistakes. Copy and paste it on BharatTutors profile.  Make it 6-7 sentence or 80-100 words long. Do not just copy and paste your whole resume/ curriculum vitae.  Write a paragraph in your own sentences.
