Tutor Questions

FAQ

Why does Tutorhub take 25% of the tutor fee?

We provide tutors with a stream of students actively looking for help, back office support including customer support, billing, website and IT.

We honestly think that we provide great value for money. We would love to reduce our commission rate, and as the business grows we may be able to do so.

FAQ

Is it similar to tutoring on Skype?

It's better than Skype! In addition to video, the Tutorhub classroom also includes: lesson recordings, collaborative whiteboard and file sharing.

Remember that Skype is not designed for online tutoring - there are no payment facilities, whiteboard or recorded lessons. There are also risks for any tutor using it, particularly child protection.

Unlike Skype, Tutorhub customers benefit from our money-back guarantee and knowing that the website has been built with child safety at its heart. 


Tutors wishing to offer Skype to deliver lessons to our customers are asked not to sign up to this website. Tutors attempting to make private financial arrangements with our customers and / or take them onto other platforms such as Skype, will have their accounts terminated. 

FAQ

Can I use Tutorhub for my own students?

Yes, subject to our 25% commission.

FAQ

Do I need to provide you with a copy of my DBS or CRB check?

We will ask you to self-certify that you are DBS checked (also known as a CRB Check), and that this is no more than three years old. We also accept Disclosure Scotland and Access Northern Ireland checks. If you do not have a DBS check, you cannot be an online tutor on Tutorhub. Prior to your first lesson, you will be asked to provide evidence of your DBS check. If you mis-represent yourself, your account will be cancelled immediately.

FAQ

How do I get a DBS check?

We recommend that you contact The Tutors Association. They have no commercial relationship with Tutorhub, and we also encourage you to shop around and seek other providers.

Remember you cannot list yourself as a tutor until you have your DBS certificate.

FAQ

What happens if I am contacted by a student and cannot help?

You may find that you are contacted for help in an area outside your specialist knowledge. If this happens, please politely decline and point them back to Tutorhub, where other tutors will be able to help.

FAQ

Can I suspend or close my tutor profile

Of course. It maybe that you are busy, on holiday or finished tutoring. In which case let us know, and we will take your profile off the website.

Failure to respond to requests for tutoring will lead to the suspension of your membership.

FAQ

Any house rules?

This is a tutoring website. We do not provide students with the answers, we explain problems to them in a way they understand and help them learn.  If you break this rule, your account will be terminated immediately. Also, please be nice to students, other tutors and the team at Tutorhub.

FAQ

What happens if there is a dispute?

There may be occasions when a lesson doesn't meet expectations. Neither Tutorhub nor the tutors want this to happen and we will be guided by our ‘Money Back Pledge’ to settle refund issues.

If Tutorhub issues a refund you will not be paid for the refunded lesson.

Still not sure? Please feel free to contact us at enquiries@tutorhub.com.
