How Tutor Match matches Students with Tutors

How TutorMatch Works

It's fast, free, and easy to find a tutor ... start searching today!

There is no account to create or membership to sign up for; as a student or parent simply use our free tools to either:

  1. Find a local tutor near your home for face-to-face teaching, or
  2. Browse through a list of tutoring subjects to find an online tutor who will work with you over the internet.

Once you have found a potential tutor candidate, simply click on the "Contact this Tutor" button on their profile page. You will be presented with an online form to provide your contact information. You only provide the contact information you want, and only to the tutors you select!

Your contact information is confidential and never shared with anyone else. The form you complete is forwarded to the tutor you selected and only they will use this information to contact you.
