Why don't I get Tuition Request?

by Vivek Singh | Jan 11, 2013

Did you ever wonder that you have posted your profile at for months and yet to get single tutoring request? I, quite often, get messages stating that I have posted my profile at the site but didn't get any offer for tutoring job. Well, it's not so easy. Just creating profile at doesn't guarantee you a tutoring job. Only best sustains in this competitive world. There are so many tips to make your profile more visible at But this article focuses on profile description field of the profile page. Recently, I got a similar message. This requester has posted his profile at the site for 4 months, but still he didn't get any tutoring job. Below is the his profile:

"hi friends, i m maneesh luking 4 2tions. i passed btech in electrical and like teaching. contact me. i wud teach maths, english very gud. cheers"

The other fields of his profile was either partially filed or filled in such a way that it's hard to understand.
Now suppose you are parents of 8 years old and looking for a tutor for Maths. Would you like to hire the above tutor? Would you ever think to call or email the above tutor? Well, certainly I won't. Why I should hire a tutor who cannot even write correct English? If someone is not so serious to present himself/ herself how can I expect him/her to be professional and serious in the teaching job. I would pass the profile.

Among 13,000+ tutors' profiles at BharatTutors, there are so many profiles which are same as above or even worse. Our support team has the capability to correct these profiles, but this would be unjustified to the tutors who put their time and created correct, meaningful and clean profile. If you go through these profiles, in the very first look you would like to hire the tutor. Below is one of the example of good tutor profile description:

"Hi, I am Maneesh Verma. I completed my B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering in 2010 from University of Jaipur. I have got 3 years of tutoring experience and would like to extend my tutoring services for English, Maths and Science. Interested students/ parents please contact me. I would offer my first class 100% free as a trial class. Thanks for viewing my profile."

Above example is clean, to the point and can easily attract students and parent's needs.
So, now it's your turn. Go back to your profile page, correct the spellings, capitalize the words appropriately and read it again and again. Finally, read it as a student or parent and think that would you hire this tutor?
