Easy process, apply, get offers of tutors, choose, pay, get going."
"I've used this website twice and its so easy to use and best of all I've had 2 very good tutors as an outcome. much quicker and easier than relying on word of mouth / people to send you their tutors details ( as they clearly state they have a great tutor you should use but are then reluctant to share incase the tutor gets too busy ???"
"I found First Tutors very easy to use I had struggled to find Russian tuition and within a few hours I was signed up and my first session booked it was that simple.
"Very useful and worry free when trying to find suitable tutor for my daughter."
"excellent website, easy to use and found a good tutor locally."
"Excellent teacher. I am very happy with the whole process"
"Very good. We struggles to find a tutor who would come out to us and teach us at home with us having small children. Not only that we killed two birds with one stone and got my 4 year old
Daughter involved for an hour before. We’ll be using Tamara every week now."
"Very pleased with the help Rachael has given me. Another appointment has been arranged for next week."
"Very polite and helpful. So glad to have found Hinal. My son was happy to have tuition from her at the first meeting. He’s looking forward to the next one. So glad that she’s also very near to us.
Many thanks :)"
I booked a tutor called Eileen Florence through yourselves. I paid £400 to Eileen upfront before the first session. When she arrived at my home she was extremely rude and aggressive towards me and my mother. After the 2 hour session of being shouted at continuously, humiliated and threatened I asked for a refund of £350 after agreeing to pay the £50 for the first session. She refused a refund of the £350 at which point I contacted First Tutors. I was then told by yourselves that all I could do was leave a bad review on Eileen Florence's page. She has black mailed my family into writing a positive review on her page in order to receive a refund. I do not agree with the way your site works as even if I had wrote a negative review on Eileen Florence's page, she can decide whether or not it is available for other users to see. This is disgraceful as how many other people does she wish to do this too. I have all proof of the emails sent by Eileen Florence if you wish to see them. It is incredible that you have a person who is capable of this tactic available on your site. For the sake of other people who may use your site in the future to book Eileen Florence I feel this should be documented so that you are aware of her capability.
Thank you for your feedback and providing more information. We do of course take all concerns of this nature very seriously and have emailed you regarding this situation.
We never recommend paying up front for more than one lesson to avoid situations such as this arising.

I am sorry that you have not been able to contact your tutor via their mobile phone. We ask all tutors to ensure that their contact details are up to date and I am sorry that you have found this not to be the case. I can see that a Customer Services representative has already been assisting you with this matter so I will send you a further email now to advise you further.

"A client made slanderous comments about myself saying that I had never provided feedback. I had at least five emails and three pieces of assessed work submitted in a three month window as evidence to the contrary. First Tutors refused to remove the rating even though what was being said was factually inaccurate and portrayed me in a very poor light putting my professional reputation at risk of being besmirched by one unreasonable and odious individual.
In response to the reply from First Tutors below the only way that First Tutors 'worked with me' was to say that I needed to contact the individual myself and to ignore a question I asked and several messages, First Tutors themselves refused to intervene in any way. I explained that the man was clearly unreasonable and somewhat unhinged (as evidenced by receiving a very long text message from him on a Sunday morning, another at 6:59 a.m. two days after this and another at 7:20 a.m. another day after this) and I was very reluctant to be in contact with him again. Consequently I had to spend my time receiving harassing, aggressive emails. When asked for a contact at First Tutors they refused to give me the name of a person who I could talk to. When I also showed the aggressive emails received from the individual to First Tutors and explained they would need to have a duty of care to their tutors working for them as this individual would probably repeat his past behaviour with another tutor and subject them to harassment, they refused to have him taken off their books.
As far as I can work out First Tutors operate out of a portacabin in Preston. There are no details of any of the staff who work there or a management structure. Please, please avoid if you are thinking of advertising as a tutor with them. This seems to be a common consesus of other tutors who have been associated with them if you care to scroll through the comments here on Trustpilot."
