Good afternoon everyone!
I hope you are all having a marvellous week so far and a great weekend!
I wanted to give you a little sneak peek to some really great new features Tutorful is working on at the moment!
The first one is what we’re calling “My Saved Tutors”, or a wishlist feature that allows our students and parents to save tutors straight from the search results page. If they scroll through the search results page, they’ll be able to save the tutor to their “My Saved Tutors” list and come back to the list at a later date!
This is a highly requested feature by our customers, who oftentimes want to review tutors with a partner and child, and struggle to find the tutor when they come back to the website.
Here’s a sneak preview of what it will look like!
Next to the sorting option at the top, you’ll find a “My Saved Tutors” button, which will take the customer to their list of saved tutors. On the tutor profile card, you’ll see a little heart, which will save a tutor to the customer’s saved tutor list.
We hope this will help a lot of our customers save tutors with whom they want to book Free Video Chats or lessons in a much more user friendly way!
Our second feature is our “keyword search” filter. We’ve added this filter to allow students and parents to filter tutors by keywords in their bio (for example, qualifications, particular genres of music, tutors who support students with SEND, etc.).
An important note is that, at the moment, we’re going to be running this as an experiment to analyse what types of keywords our customers are searching for and how they are using the feature. We will expand the functionality based on our customer and tutor feedback (a future idea, for example, is to expand it beyond the bio and also include taglines, tutors’ names, etc.).
Here’s a sneak preview!
Alongside this feature, we will be posting to our tutors in the community to give you some tips and tricks for what type of keywords customers are likely to search, as well as providing our customers with FAQs and tips and tricks for what type of keywords they should be searching. We will work closely with you to make sure these FAQs and tips and tricks represent your thoughts and feedback, as we want this feature to support both you and our students and parents.
Thank you again for letting me share this exciting news with you! Watch this space for further updates on when the features are coming!
