Ready to work on your profile? Click the

tab to complete the fields shown below.


Remember:
Your photo, personal statement, hobbies, and interests will be visible to clients and generate client opportunities.

Your profile is
very important
– it is a client’s first impression of you and the placement system uses information from it to help you connect with tutoring opportunities.
Continue to scroll down through the additional sections within the

tab.
Click
Edit Schedule
to change when you are available to tutor.
A
secondary address
is optional. This space is for a second location you may be at prior to attending a tutoring session. Common examples are work or school.

We can use this to map the distance from that location to an in-person tutoring opportunity
for you.
If you make changes to the My Account Information tab, be sure to click the
Update Profile
button at the bottom of the page to save.
To receive payments, please read the two emails sent to you from

It is very important to note that once you have expressed interest in a student you are committing to hold that time slot open for 24-hours. If after 24-hours you have not been assigned to work with the student or contacted by a director to hold that slot for longer, you may release that time slot for other clients.

But First!
Let's review a few important points from your contract and the tutor FAQs.
What does saying "Yes!" mean?
Clicking “Yes” to an opportunity gives VT the green light to assign you to a student without further discussion, should you turn out to be the best match. Remember, there is a real student on the other end of your responses, so being thoughtful and confident when clicking "Yes" is extremely important.
Put Your Best
Foot Forward!
Recommendations for success
Non-Solicitation Policy

Varsity tutors has a strict Non-solicitation policy in our contracts with tutors and clients. If clients and tutors are found in breach of their contracts, there are significant damages.
Minimum session lengths

K- 5th grade: 1 hour
6th grade and up (academic subjects): 1.5 hours
Test Prep (any age): 2 hours
Reccomendations for Success
Once you have been assigned a student, please contact the family within 24 hours to introduce yourself and confirm the first session.
Conducting Sessions
It’s important to walk into every session as a confident professional tutor. It’s important to convey that feeling to our clients. Please dress professionally, be on time and maintain good communication with your clients. Always make sure you have the next session scheduled when you leave a session with a student. This will help keep you and your client meeting on a regular basis and ensure that the student is getting the support needed to make the progress that they expect.
If a situation arises where you need a substitute or need a replacement, please notify your director before speaking with your students. We will work with you to determine the best course of action for you and the student.
