How do new students find me?

New students find you through your online profile on Tutors with awesome profile photos, detailed service descriptions, and a certification or background screening badges are most likely to attract new students.

What is a background screening? Why do I have to pay for my own background screening?

It is common practice in the educational industry for workers (such as teachers, volunteers, independent contractors, etc.) to be asked to pass a background check in order to verify their criminal records. It’s also classic that they pay for their own background screenings. A background screening generally pays for itself after one session.

How much do you charge?

Listing your services on is completely free. We only ask you to pay $20 for the Basic background screening or $30 for the Enhanced background screening (+ applicable court fees surcharge per county). These charges are directly paid to our partner HireRight.

How much should I charge my lessons?

We don’t get involved in price definition, you’re the boss. However, to help you decide, here are few things you should consider:

  • Your qualifications, certifications, diploma
  • The strength of your tutoring experience
  • The difficulty of the subjects you teach
  • The city you live in

Who pays for the lessons and how do I get paid?

MyTutorSpeaksFrench doesn’t employ any tutor so you are paid directly by the students. It is up to you to determine the frequency and the method of payment with your students.

Where does tutoring take place?

Tutors and students often choose to have lessons at the student's home. Many also use libraries or coffee shops to have lessons. Some music tutors may propose their music studio; sport coaches may propose places where they have privileged access. It's completely up to you and your student.

How do I prepare and organize my tutoring sessions?

This is up to you, you are in charge of your methods, material and contents of the sessions. However, we have few suggestions to prepare for your first session with a new student. First, talk to the student in advance of the lesson to gather insight on what they are hoping to achieve during your time together. Second, if you provide academic tutoring, try to obtain a copy of the relevant textbooks, course syllabus, etc. Preparing for subsequent sessions will be based on your student’s individual progress and your roadmap for achieving your goals.

Is there a lesson cancellation policy?

MyTutorSpeaksFrench does not set up lesson cancellation policy. You can come up with your own cancellation policy and specify it on your profile. We advise you to discuss this point with your students before tutoring begins. A reasonable policy might be that cancellations within 24 hours will be billed at half rate.

Can I exchange email or phone number with a student?

To preserve everyone’s privacy, we recommend you use our internal messaging system to answer students inquiries and questions to make sure you offer what they are looking for. Once you feel confident and want to arrange logistics around the lessons, go ahead.

How do I rank on top of the search results?

Make sure you have a detailed profile with an awesome picture. Get the certification and the background screening. Get positive reviews from past students. Share your profile page on social networks such as Facebook, Linkedin or Twitter. Be reactive! Answer inquiries and questions in less than 6 hours

I am unavailable to tutor new students right now. How do I stop receiving new tutoring inquiries?

Just inactivate your ad from your account and it won’t appear in the search results anymore. Whenever you are ready to take new students just activate it again so you don’t have to start over.

Am I guaranteed to get new students?

No, we do not guarantee new students for any tutors. The volume of students depends on your geographic area, the subjects you teach, your price, etc. However, there are things you can do to improve your chances, such as getting past students to leave positive reviews on your profile.
