Universitytutor.com Review

Universitytutor.com was founded in 2004 by a college student, as a site to match students in need of help with tutors who would be paid directly by those students. This is somewhat close to the business model the company has today. To provide this University Tutor review, we looked at a number of factors, one of the most important being customer reviews that we found on the web. Of course, we look at on-site testimonials, but do not give the as much weight. We have thoroughly studied the content on the website, have looked at profiles of UniversityTutor tutors, customer service, policies and processes, and more.

University Tutor Services

As the name implies, the company provides tutoring in all academic subjects to high school and college students, along with test prep. It operates much as a job board. Students enter their tutoring need on the University Tutor website, it is then posted, students are then contacted by potential tutors for “interviews,” and the student makes the final selection. Tutor and student agree on the price, and payment is held by the company until the end of the agreed upon “contract.”

Tutoring can occur in person or online, depending on student preference and location. Right now, University Tutor boasts that it has tutors in over 10,000 cities and 125 countries

The company’s role is minimal. And, in fact, the only method of contacting the company is via email.

Quality of Products and Writers

Obviously, there are not academic writing products or writers. The question becomes the quality of tutors in terms of education, background, experience, and actual performance.

Here we found a mixed bag. Customer reviews on the web range from very satisfied to very unhappy. Quality and customer satisfaction are really matters of the tutor that a student selects, so the onus is totally on the student. The company makes this quite clear and tells students that it is their responsibility to “interview” tutors and make wise selections.

Prices and Payment Options

There are no fixed prices, discounts, nor will students ever find any type of promo code or coupon code for special pricing. Prices are negotiated between student and tutor, and the company merely takes its commission. Payment options are standard – major bank cards and PayPal.

UniversityTutor Discounts

In a word – none.

Extra Treats

Because UniversityTutor does not operate as a writing service that delivers products, there are no “extras” that might be found on those sites.

Final Note

Clearly, University Tutor is not a fraud or scam. Students post their tutoring needs, select tutors, and get the services they pay for. Do we have some concerns? Yes. In looking at pros & cons, we have noted that there is not a BBB membership indicated on the site, that the company is almost too absent, and that there is a lot of responsibility placed upon the student in the tutor selection process. Tutors can come across as highly expert in their conversations with students and yet not really deliver once they are selected. For these reasons, we are providing a rating of “Fair.”

this is a spam site with no real value. They don't have tutors, they don't have employees even! There site looks like they bought if from some dumb dumb ""here is a business website"" person, and it is literally a terrible terrible spammy poop face donkey.

On 7 January, following a search on University Tutor for an online tutor for my Corporate Finance module for my MBA and after inputting my details so that the selected tutor could contact me I received an email response from a “premium tutor” who informed me that he could provide the required service. We exchanged a number of mails and I provided a copy of my coursebook and sample examination papers. I was informed by the tutoe that he offers minimum 2 hr sessions at £25 per hour. I agreed to the charge and duly made payment of £50, via PayPal account the the PayPal account provided. I received email confirmation from the tutor that he had received the payment. Following this, and despite repeated emails from me to the tutor and private messages to University Tutor via Facebook I have received no response from either the tutor or the company. I have lodged a complaint with PayPal. The service that I have received from falls well short of what I would have expected and I have a suspicion that some form of fraud has taken place.
