5 Ways to BOOST Your PrivateTutors.ie Profile

5 Ways to BOOST Your PrivateTutors.ie Profile

Private Tutors is not your average tutoring platform

Our unparalleled transparency attracts awesome parents and our 0% commissions attract the best private tutors…

As a result, we often have too many tutor profiles on our platform. See, we don’t want parents to be overwhelmed by an abundance of choice, and we don’t need out-dated tutor profiles to make ourselves look big

So, if you were wondering why we get you to manually reactivate your profile every few months, now you know. It’s because you can trust us when we say, “We have your best interests at heart.”

Now, while we limit the total number of Private Tutors profiles, there’s only so much we can do. Here are 5 ways you can further boost your Private Tutors profile and help us help you!

Write a Detailed Profile

A good first impression makes a huge difference…

So, it goes without saying that your profile should be as detailed as possible. We don’t mean including your Eircode or sharing percentages of your results (lol). We mean detailed in a more personal way. Convince parents that you’ll be the perfect role model

Here are a few tips we have that will help you improve your profile…

  • Don’t be afraid to show off your accomplishments
  • Use a clear, smiling headshot of yourself as your profile photo
  • Make sure the first few lines of your bio stand out and attract parents
  • Submit your qualifications to get the ‘Verified Qualifications’ badge
  • Ask a friend or family member to review your profile

Upgrade Your Profile

There wouldn’t be much point in crafting a stellar profile if no one was to see it…

That’s why we’ve got three ways you can upgrade your profile…

The first way is to submit your qualifications for review. We manually review each qualification and delete our copy when we’re done. Only the names of your qualifications will be visible on your Private Tutors profile and you’ll get a ‘Verified Qualifications’ badge on your profile card…

The second thing you can do is to extend the duration of your profile. This saves you having to come in and reactivate your profile every 3 months. It’s a small investment that helps us keep Private Tutors awesome and you might get some added visibility as a treat…

The third thing you can do is ‘hack the system’. (Please don’t take this literally!) You can pay a small fee to upgrade to a ‘highlighted’ or ‘top tutor’ profile. These added differentiators give you more visibility. Just make sure you have a complimentary profile to back you up!

Please note that paying for an upgrade does not guarantee you’ll get students and that even if you have paid for an upgrade, we reserve the right to refund your money and downgrade your profile. This rarely happens, but may be necessary to keep everyone’s best interests at heart…

Ask for Reviews

Having a few testimonials or reviews on your profile is a huge selling point

“Yes, I know, but I didn’t get a chance to submit any on my application form…” Sorry about that. It’s cause submitting reviews is a well-kept secret only for private tutors who have read this blog post. Just kidding, it’s because that way we’d have no way of verifying them…

Anyways, if you want to enhance your profile by submitting some testimonials, please send us an email at team@privatetutors.ie and include ‘I’ve got some AWESOME testimonials’ in the subject header…

Every single submitted testimonial will be checked. So, please make sure they contain more than 50 words, and include the reference’s full name and contact details

At the end of each month, the private tutor with the most/best reviews is awarded a One4All gift voucher and their very own blog post written by us. So, it’s best to send us all your testimonials at once!

Submit Blog Posts and Notes

Heart-felt testimonials written by your students’ parents are great…

Honest testimonials written by us, PrivateTutors.ie, can be even better. (Especially in the parents’ eyes.) You can even quote our testimonials on your CV!

Now, we don’t hand out testimonials to everyone on our site, far from it. Our testimonials are reserved for exceptional tutors and earned through hard work. This is because we know the incredible value it can add when parents are making their final tutor hiring decision…

There are two ways to get our testimonials…

  • Have your tutoring related post published on our blog
  • Have your H1 Leaving Cert notes on our site

We won’t sugar coat it, it’s a tedious process. You can check the requirements in the ‘Boost My Profile’ page which can be found in the footer…

On top of getting our testimonial which you can quote on your CV, you’ll also get links to your Private Tutors profile and full credit for your work

It may seem like a lot to ask for in return for a short little paragraph and a few links. But trust us, we’d be doing you a huge disservice if we didn’t let you know about this incredible opportunity. In fact, other tutors are jumping on their ‘first mover advantage’ and we already have piles of notes sitting in our inbox!
