Laki has been teaching my daughter online lessons using zoom. My daughter has made fantastic progress in both Maths and English and her confidence has also vastly improved. A very friendly tutor!

First tutors makes you pay a finders fee before you are able to meet with a tutor. Tutors end up giving free first lesson to offset this. What are first tutors doing to earn this apart from hosting a website?

Dear Ingrid,

First Tutors charge a finder's fee to release your chosen tutor's contact information, once you have used the free messaging platform to discuss your tuition requirements with a number of tutors.

Our finder's goes towards the costs involved in running a website, providing a 7 day Customer Service team, and completing identification and reference checks on all of our registered tutors. You can see how our fees compare to other providers at the link below.

I hope all is going well with your new tutor. If you need any assistance please contact our Customer Support team.

Kind regards,
First Tutors

Have used First Tutors twice (after trying a different agency first). On both occasions I have found them very efficient and have been pleased with the tutors I chose. Their model, where you pay a finder's fee and then conduct the relationship with your tutor yourself, I find much better than where the agency makes the rules. Previously I have had to pay for a tutor session when my child was taken ill, because the agency said no notice had been given!
Long live First Tutors.

Dear Seyit,
First Tutors offers a private forum for tutors and students to discuss requirements in full. Only when you are happy with your choice in tutor do we ask for a fee to release their contact details. Our fee's help cover the cost of identity and reference checks on all registered tutors. Unlike traditional agencies, First Tutors do not charge commission to the student or the tutor, making us an affordable player on the market. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with your choice of tutor, our tutor guarantee enables you to select a replacement tutor at no further cost. If you need any assistance or have any questions please contact our Customer Service team and we will be happy to help. Kind Regards, First Tutors

My daughter found Donal O'Callaghan an excellent tutor. He was very kind and explained her maths very well, in a way she quickly understood, he is excellent at teaching and gets things across in an easy and understandable way. We would highly recommend Donal O'Callaghan for maths at any level. First Tutors is a brilliant site for finding tutors of all sorts.
