As you may have noticed, we’ve recently given First Tutors a more up-to-date design, which as well as looking smart, should make browsing much easier on phones and iPads. This is part of our new drive to make the site more engaging and dynamic. We’ve revamped the blog, are in the process of developing new advice articles for the non-academic parts of the site, and are moving to integrate more effectively with social networking platforms. We feel this will give you, the tutors, a deeper engagement with First Tutors, and consequently, your potential clients!
We'd love your feedback on the new design so any comments are welcome please!
As part of this new move, we would like to give tutors the opportunity to get involved in the social life of the site, namely, through guest blogging! So if you have an idea for a blog post (or a vlog!), on anything related to education, don’t hesitate to e-mail us at email@example.com, and we’ll discuss it.
We have many more exciting social projects in the pipeline, which will be announced in future newsletters. Watch this space!
Busy season approaches... Are you available?
Lastly, on quite a pressing note; if you’re not currently available to take on new clients, be sure to switch your profile off for the duration. This means clients can contact tutors who are actually available to teach, meaning they don’t waste their time on fruitless avenues of inquiry.
The Telegraph inspires geographers
Just as the sun finally emerges, The Daily Telegraph has asked us to draw your attention to its Two-part Essential Guide to the Weather, free with the newspaper on 9 & 10 March (this weekend). Introduced by ITV's weather presenter Siân Lloyd and in association with the Met Office, look out for your two free 40-page, colourful guides to cloudspotting, weather forecasting and extreme weather. We thought it might make lessons a touch more interesting, and certainly if this picture is anything to go by, the supplement should be visually stunning.
For providing references so quickly. Clients tell us they find these recommendations hugely reassuring. If you haven't added yours yet, please be sure to do so before a client contacts you, to avoid delay.
