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 smartphones and iPads. This is part of our new drive to make the site more engaging and dynamic.
We've revamped the blog (ever wondered about what exactly counts as plagiarism?) and are in the process of developing new advice articles across all the sites, so if you need guidelines on getting help with coursework , or want help picking the right musical instrument for you, have a look at our Articles section, under the Resources tab. We’ll be updating these on a regular basis.
We are also moving to integrate more effectively with social networking platforms: we feel this will give you, the tutees, a deeper and more fulfilling engagement with First Tutors.
We'd love your feedback on the new design so any comments are welcome please!
Free guide to private tuition
We have produced an ebook guide to private tuition, initially as part of a promotion for Telegraph readers; however we’ve decided to make it available for everyone, for free. You can download it here
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.
Has tuition helped you achieve your dreams? If so, we'd like to hear your story. Email us at email@example.com and we may feature you on the site!
