Tutoring basics

How do I get students to tutor?

Students looking for help will search tutors through our search engine. Having a wide availability, staying online or getting good reviews are some ways to show higher in the results and thus, receive more students’ requests.

How do I begin a lesson?

If it is an immediate lesson while you are online (signed in), you’ll get a request in your chat. You only need to by clicking on the link provided and meet the student in the virtual classroom.

If it is a previously scheduled session. You will see a button for that session in your ‘lessons’ section in your account, once it is time for it. You only need to click on the button and go to the virtual classroom.

Is there a minimum commitment for tutors?

Not at all. We have tutors who teach as little as 15 minutes per month and others who tutor many times a day. It's completely up to you! You always have the choice to accept or turn down a lesson. However, once you accept a lesson, you are expected to work with the student until their questions have been answered.

What happens if I don't show to an scheduled session?

Nothing happens in term of penalties. But you will, most likely, receive a negative feedback from the student, and that counts towards your future amount of demand.

Can tutors receive lessons too?

Of course! We never stop learning, so in CG Heroes tutors can receive lessons and help from other tutors, just like any other student.
