Find the tutor
you're looking for
Instead of having to ask everyone you know until you find a good tutor that can help your children with their homework, you can now download Orcas on your mobile and find them all at once!
How It Works
Create a learner profile
Once you've downloaded the application, you will have access to over 3500 tutor profiles.
First, create a learner profile to help connect you to the most relevant tutors.
Choose the neighborhood (or online) and the subject for which you need a tutor
All available tutors will appear on the search results screen. To help you choose the most suitable profile you can also filter by:
Ratings and reviews
Compare tutor profiles
Find out more about the tutor and read reviews about them to help you choose. You'll also be able to read about their:
Previous work experience
Average rating they've received from previous learners
Send the tutor a message (for free)
After you've selected a tutor profile, you'll be able to start chatting with them for free. The tutor will receive your message instantly.
If they are available, they will accept your request and coordinate your session details with you.
If the tutor is not available, they will decline your request.
Complete your payment
Once the tutor has sent you an agreement, you'll be able to pay via:
The tutor will not receive the payment until you confirm that the session has occurred. You can decide how many sessions you want to pay for in advance.
Track your tutoring sessions
After each tutoring session takes place (at home, in a nearby cafe or online), you will be asked to confirm the session.
You can cancel or renew your package at any time.
Tutoring sessions are calculated per hour and vary between tutors.
Why don't all tutors have the same hourly rates?
The more reviews and experience hours a tutor has completed, the higher their hourly rate becomes. Tutors that have completed a certain amount of tutoring experience can set their own prices (Platinum Tutors). Tutors that recently added their profile to Orcas are either Bronze, Silver or Gold tutors depending on their previous experiences.
