Get Booked By Students By Creating The Best Profile!

While you may be the best tutor around, students won't know that unless your display yourself in the right way.


Congrats on creating your Tutoring Profile on Whiz Tutor.  You are well on your way to helping students around the country achieve their educational dreams.  

The next step is getting your first booking by a student.  Below are some tips from some of our top performing tutors.  We have noticed that tutors that follow these suggestions receive 70% more bookings than their peers!



Elements of Phenomenal Photos

  • No Mirror/Bathroom shots
  • Smiling
  • Looking at the Camera
  • Professional Clothes
  • “Rule of Thirds” Eyes should be in the top third of the portrait.  
  • Optimal Lighting (We want to see your face!)

Bonus Points

  • Graduation Cap
  • School Pride (Jacket, Shirt, Sash, etc)

You really don’t have to get a good photo with an expensive photographer.  You can achieve great results with your Smartphone.  Take a great selfie, ask a friend to take a photo of you, or get a tripod to get the best results.

How to Write a Great Bio.

“Hello, I'm Melissa! I have been tutoring for 10 years now and it's truly been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I've helped so many students achieve their academic goals year after year and I know that YOU are more than capable of doing the same with the right help. I received my degree in Chemistry and specialize in the areas of Math and Science for high school and college students.”


Kross's Example Bio: View his Profile

“Hello, I'm Kross! I've been tutoring for several years now specializing in Math and Science. I'm majoring in Computer Science at College of the Canyons and plan to transfer to Michigan State or UCLA in the near future. One of my proudest moments as a tutor was when I had the opportunity to work for Hart High School's 4 year REACH program, where I taught students the skills to put them on a path to college. Lastly, I'm super excited to announce that I was chosen to work on a school project for NASA where we are going to be sending something into space. Schedule a tutoring session to start bringing those grades up!”
