THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED AS OF 5/4/09
Today I bring to you an excellent website with a phenomenal service. Tutor Match.com
From their site:
TutorMatch is the oldest tutor referral network on the internet -- we've been providing parents and students with free local tutor searches since 1996. We have local tutors in thousands of cities across every state in the country, and we also offer online tutor services as well.
Here's how it works:
Tutors - which can be work at home moms and dads, teachers, or just about anybody willing to work with students - can sign up to list their profile on TutorMatch.com. And it's completely safe! TutorMatch only lists the user's profile and protects their identity.
Parents and students can then search for either local tutors near them or online tutors anywhere in the world, for free. The tutor's last names and contact info are anonymous, and parents nor the students have to sign up or enter any personal info to use this service! That for me is ideal! When you find a tutor you would like to interview, only then is personal information entered into the system.
Parents and students are free and welcome to interview and contact as many tutors as they want. Think of their service at TutorMatch as a big phone book for tutors.
If you are a tutor seeking some kids to tutor, all you have to do is a simple search for one! If you want to sign up to tutor, that's easy too!
I did a search for some tutors in my area and I located 22 tutors! Wow! That's a good amount! I honestly didn't expect to see that many! I live in a highly populated area, but I just didn't expect that many people to know about TutorMatch! I am pleasantly surprised!
TutorMatch also has a blog, Homework Help Today, and if anyone is interested in having their blog or website reviewed, let me know. If it's of interest to parents, students, or teachers, they would love to publish it!
