TutorZ provides an excellent way for students to get in touch with a tutor. The way their system works, a student requests a tutor at no charge. The tutor receives notification that someone is seeking their services. The tutor can then purchase the student's contact information for a small fee (about $2-$3). Once this purchase is made, all further communication is free of charge. No strings attached.
I have 10 years experience as a tutor, and I feel this is a fantastic system. The problem with 100% free tutoring sites is that they don't seem to have enough funding to provide quality service. The problem with other sites that require payment is that they are greedy with how much money they require from both tutor and student. TutorZ provides a nice middle ground that is fair for all parties. What's even more remarkable is that they give new tutors a $10 credit so they can try out the site and gain students without putting down any of their own money. This is good business.
In addition, the customer service is first rate. I had a few minor issues while setting up my account, so I contacted TutorZ on two different occasions to help. Their response was fast, helpful and courteous. The only "negative" comment I can make is that TutorZ isn't the top hit on a google search. It deserves to be because I feel it is the best, most ethical service of its kind.
As a tutor, I've managed to find a few students through TutorZ. However, lead quality overall seems to be lower, and it's a tad inconvenient to run several different payment channels. Overall, just a middle-of-the-road experience.
I use TutorZ for client leads. After my purchase, I have gotten a few client leads but not as many as I expected. I think TutorZ needs to improve on that. Other sites such as Tutorselect that I use gives plenty of leads. Overall, I like the interface and the concept but something must to designed so tutors can see and contact clients when they view online tutoring requests.
Good service. Found me students, a pleasure to deal with.
This is a great site for finding wonderful tutors...

Where my query was sent. I identified 3 that I was interested in. Two were sent to a different service WyzAnt where the hourly charge is higher. I can go to WyzAnt myself. What a number of contacts I got - like I posted to a blog.
Thank you for your kind, positive and detailed testimonial. Glad to have you as one of our star tutors, Bruce!Dirk Wagner

TutorZ has become my favorite source for obtaining new tutoring students, during the past few years. Instead of paying a flat fee for uncertain "pig-in-a-poke" website access, TutorZ is free to browse, and I purchase only those leads that I believe are qualified and suitable. Furthermore, the per-lead cost is remarkable low (only a few bucks, and even less after discounts), and the company does not get a "cut" (nor do they insist on having all contact go thru them). As a very experienced (and successful) tutor, I highly recommend TutorZ to any qualified tutor who is serious about growing his business (beyond word-of-mouth referrals), cannot afford expensive advertising, and doesn't want to give away 20-40% or more to some other website.
