Earlier this week we released a brand new version of Book&Table, which includes a new dashboard for learners. Things are pretty different now, so we wanted to make sure we provided a more thorough explanation of how to go request a tutor.
Signup or Login
Anyone interested in connecting with a tutor must be a member of Book&Table. Signing up is free; just use one of your social media accounts (we currently support Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn), or sign up with your email address.
On your dashboard you should see the Request a Tutor section at the top of the page with tutors’ thumbnails inside of it. Click the How it Works button on the right side to be taken to the page where you can request a tutor.
On the following page click the blue Request a Tutor button and complete the form that unfolds. You'll be asked to answer questions about availability, frequency of sessions, and subjects you'd like to cover. Once you finish the form, you will automatically be connected with the top-ranked tutors in your area.
Connect With Tutors
Tutors on Book&Table work for themselves, so they determine their hourly rate, schedule, and curriculum. Once you submit the Request a Tutor form, you’ll be able to view profiles of the tutors who match your request. These folks will reach out to you to introduce themselves and discuss the details of proposed lessons further, and you have the liberty to choose whoever seems like the best fit.
Once you’ve spoken with a tutor that seems like a good fit, either let them know during your call or message them back through Book&Table that you’d like to set up a lesson together. The tutor will confirm your lesson by sending you a Lesson Proposal through Book&Table, which will include the lesson details and pricing. After your lesson, you will receive feedback from your tutor describing what happened during the lesson and what you can do moving forward to continue improving.
If you have any questions, you can always reach us by leaving a comment in the black box in the lower right portion of the screen.
