If you would like to learn more about how to use the online classroom, as well as troubleshooting tips, we are running seminars at 6pm on Tuesdays and 11am on Thursdays for tutors! You can see how to join one here.
Online tutoring is a fantastic way to get connected with students and allows you to teach from within the comforts of your own home. With Tutorful, you'll be able to accept students from across the UK and have lessons through our online classroom inbuilt into the Tutorful website.
Using a webcam and microphone you will be able to see and hear your student, and there are loads of useful tools, including an interactive whiteboard, which allow you to share documents with your students to enhance your lessons.
How to get started
To get started online tutoring, simply head to your profile page, and edit your ‘Teaching Preferences’ to include online tutoring. You'll then appear in the online search results and be able to access online tuition requests posted to our Job Board.
Trying out the Online Classroom
All online lessons booked on our system creates a private classroom for you and your student to enter at the scheduled time. We highly recommend familiarising yourself with the classroom before teaching a real lesson, as you will be able to test your internet browser to ensure it’s all set up, trial the different features available, and contact us if you have any questions. To do so, simply select "Demo Online Classroom" from the drop-down underneath your name in the top right of the website or from your ‘Teaching preferences’.
Booking and joining your first online lesson
To book your first online lesson, simply select 'Online' as the lesson location. At the time of the lesson, you will be able to join the lesson through the green banner which will appear at the top of your page, or through the lesson booking itself when viewing the lesson details.
