As we promised you in our last newsletter, we're regularly going to be putting new and exciting stuff on the blog for now on. Ever had doubts about exams? Muse on the alternatives with our latest post.
We're also very happy to announce our first guest blog post, by Sam Curran, a trainee Maths teacher, on the importance of Maths in education . So if you've got an idea for a blog post, on an educational topic close to your heart, email email@example.com and we'll discuss it!
The Genuine Article
We're in the process of creating new advice articles, relevant for both tutors and tutees. Our latest is on Memory, and how to improve it: so if you're having difficulty packing information into your grey matter, learn about how your imagination can create 'memory journeys' here.

...to respond to requests. We do not penalise you when you decline requests, but we will if you consistently fail to respond either way.
And as always, we remind you to set your profile to inactive if you'll be unable to tutor for a period of time. We cannot stress enough just how important this is!
First Tutors presents...The Marketplace
We've recently given clients the opportunity to publicise requests in the Marketplace, meaning any tutor can take them up if interested. We will also notify ten people at random when a relevant request is made in their area, mainly to avoid constant email notifications!
This new system will create opportunities for both tutors and clients: everyone wins!
