After you register and your account is activated, log in from the user login box in the top left user panel of the website. Click on the “Advertisements” icon. You will be directed to a page where you can either create a new advertisement or update an existing one. Click on “Create New Advertisement.” Choose the type of advertisement you want to create and click “Next.”

All advertisements must be approved by Tutor Index before they are posted live. You will receive an email from us when your advertisement is approved. Please allow up to 48 hours for this process.
My City Is Not Listed
If your city is not included in our database and you want to list your tutoring services with us, choose a city that is close to you and create your advertisement there. You can tell users your exact location in the description section of your profile.
You can also email us your city, and we will do our best to include it in our next update. If your city is added, you can update your advertisement at any time.
My Subject Is Not Listed
If you would like to list your tutoring services on our website but your subject is not listed in our database, choose a subject that is similar to your discipline. You can tell users your exact specialty in the description section of your profile.
You can also email us the subject you tutor, and we will do our best to include it in our next update. After we add your subject, you can modify your advertisement at any time.
Order of Tutor Listings
When a header search is performed on Tutor Index, the results are displayed by closest proximity to the postal code entered by the user. Premium Directory Listings are posted at the top of the page, followed by the Basic Directory Listings.
Panel Advertisements are located on the side panels throughout the website, and they are rotated to ensure every advertiser receives equal exposure.
Tutor Advertising Rates
You can advertise on Tutor Index for as little as $50 for six months or $75 for one year. We offer two different billing options for tutors who advertise on our site. You can pay for your Directory Listing or Panel Advertisement for a period of six months or one year. You save 33% when you pay annually, and we offer discounts when you list your services in more than one city. Visit our advertising page for more information and rates.
Listing Payment Options
Tutor Index accepts Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover, Check or PayPal. When you submit your Directory Listing or Panel Advertisement for approval, you will automatically be billed every six months or every year on a recurring basis until you notify us otherwise. There are no contracts or long-term commitments when you advertise with Tutor Index. You can discontinue your ad(s) at any time without penalty.
If you have a pre-designed advertisement you would like to use on Tutor Index, you can upload it when you purchase your Panel Ad. The correct size is 215 x 150px. When we receive it, we will approve your design and resize it if necessary. After your ad is approved, we will post it live to our site.
If you do not have a pre-designed ad, Tutor Index will design your Panel Advertisement for free! When you purchase your Panel Ad online, simply choose the option to receive our free design service, and our team of talented graphic designers will work with you to create your ad. It will be posted live on our website after it has been approved by you. If you request, Tutor Index will redesign your Panel Ad at no charge once during the year or at renewal. Additional redesigns are subject to a $75 charge per design.
