Why do Home Tuition Agencies charge Registration Fees from a Tutor? Is it worth paying?
- No, not at all. It is not worth paying.
- What is the guarantee they will provide students?
- Do they have students?
- Are they just making money by registering tutors?
- What is the guarantee they will provide students in the locations I have mentioned?
- Will they provide students according to my fee structure?
- I don’t have my conveyance, can they provide me tuitions on the bus route?
Many such questions come to most of the tutors’ minds.
Are you one of them and need tuitions?

What you will do, with these thoughts in mind, you may search Google for “tuition bureau near me”, “home tutor bureau near me”, “home tutor jobs without registration fee”, “free registration for a home tutor in Delhi”, “Home Tuition Agencies near me”, like phrases.
What are you trying to find?
You are finding the list of Home Tuitions Agencies who do “Free Registration”.
Most tutors even do not study the “About section” or detail of the Home Tuition Agency. They directly visit Tutor Registration Page, fill the form and submit it.
If a Home Tuition Agency asking for their documents like ID proof, Qualification proof, etc. They just leave it or upload incomplete documents. Visit some more Home Tuition Agency websites, and repeat the process.
That’s it. They think they have done their job, now it’s the Home Tuition Agency’s job to contact him or her.
As if, Home Tuition Agencies were waiting for your resume, to call you, to engage you…….
Do you think so?
When most of the companies are shedding their workers, struggling to survive, no new jobs are available. Genuine Tuition Agencies will call/engage you?
They may drop a message or call you once, to complete the registration process so that they may contact you when needed.
But Tuition Agencies who are here to make most of the money by registration amount only will try to trap you. How?
They may send fake inquiries, old inquiries, and expired inquiries to you or send the same inquiry to 5 to 10 tutors.
When you call back or reply to an inquiry. They simply reply that inquiry is now not available “you are late to reply”. Call next time timely or may ask you to do “Paid Registration”.
They will repeat this process until you do “Paid Registration”.
Now, what afterwards.
They may send you genuine inquiries, but maybe at a far location or may give the same inquiry to more than five tutors and they never discuss the fee with the client. Will ask you to fix it yourself.
You will be happy as you have the liberty to fix charges. You have full faith in your teaching methods, subject knowledge and have a reference of some good students/past clients.
You think I will fix this class.
You call the client and fix the demo class.
You go there, take a delightful demo class.
Parents are also happy. They want to engage you. Now the most important matter comes “the fee matter”. They ask you to charge, such a low fee which even the coaching centre does not charge.
If somehow you convince them to a reasonable fee, that tuition will not last for a long time. For new tutors, it is entirely a waste of their time as they are unable to mature such classes.
It is not easy to fix such tuitions. Usually, you will be able to fix 1 to 2 tuitions out of 8-10 tuitions.
Unfortunately, if you got rejected in the first 2-3 tuitions, the Home Tuition Agency will stop sending more inquiring.
Now you justify yourself, I already knew all Home Tuition Agencies are ………
The same thoughts will come to your mind, which was there when you started this whole process.
What is wrong with this process?
You have to refine this process to protect yourself from harassment and waste of your precious time.
How to Choose a Tuition Agency?
Instead of focusing on Home Tuition Agency who do the free registration.
Do Paid Registration in at least one established Home Tuition Agency, which has their local centre or office.
Read its Google reviews, visit all the pages of the Home Tuition Agency to know more about it, you may visit the Home Tuition Agency office and ask from nearby shops/offices how old it is.
You may ask the detail of teachers who are working with that Home Tuition Agency for a long time.
Even you may ask for the detail of those tutors who has Google records, has some YouTube videos so that you may call them and can take Home Tuition Agency feedback.
You may take the detail of tutors who are working with VTTS for more than 10 years.
When a Home Tuition Agency has tutors who are working for more than 10 years then there is something positive that may also force you to join that Home Tuition Agency.
What are the problems faced by genuine Home Tuition Agencies when they send tutors without registration fees?
1. With new tutors/Freshers:
Freshers are new to this profession, due to their unprofessionalism their chances to mature tuitions are low.
They are in the learning process. They may have sound subject knowledge but sometimes they may misjudge the level of the student.
Sometimes to show their subject knowledge they try to cover the whole topic or exercise in a single class, without understanding, the student is average and unable to grasp all this in a single class.
Sometimes when the student does not ask much in demo class, they think a student is average and start from the basics of the topic.
But maybe the student is brilliant, due to his or her shy nature he/she is not communicating with the tutor.
As a result, he/she give feedback to parents – “tutor is average he/she has taught all that which I already knew”. Ultimately tuition does not mature.
2. When a tutor call a client
and the client say I am busy, will talk to you later, they wait for the client’s call. In between another smart tutor fix class, ultimately that assignment gets waste.
3. Sometimes tutors may get late
- to call clients as some of them take this profession as a part-time and are more focused on their other goals.
- for the demo class and don’t take the pain to inform the client about it.
- to give proper feedback to the tuition agency, they don’t know what the value of their feedback is to the agency.
4. Sometimes they reschedule their demo class
due to less important reasons without understanding “first impression is the last impression”.
5. Forget to call client.
When the tutor call client and his/her phone is busy or not reachable, forget to call the client again.
6. Some tutors are naïve and innocent,
have never done public dealings before. They don’t know how to deal with the clients.
What to do in certain critical situations. They need guidance on how to deal with a particular situation.
“When we pay for something we value it compared to things which we get FREE”.
With paid registration, some of these problems can be eliminated and others can be minimized with the tuitions agency’s guidance.
When the tuition agency charges registration charges, it devotes special attention to new tutors and guides them through SMS / WhatsApp or by calling.
It also helps tuition agencies
1. To filter serious tutors.
2. To filter confident tutors.
Because a less confident tutor thinks at least twice before giving the registration fee.
But you must think about the tuition bureau who is also taking a risk by appointing you.
Also, the tuition agency has to spend more time grooming you, guiding you, to support you when you feel helpless. If you are low in confidence simply share this with tuition agency and ask how it can help you to overcome it.
Also, share your fear factor with tuition agency.
VTTS team is always ready to help you.
3. To filter genuine tutors.
Genuine tutors are who have given the correct information to tuition agency and have documents to prove it.
Usually, tutors who do free registration give fake information or hide information that may not select him or her. Also, these tutors may have incomplete documents.
Now a question arises why some tuitions agencies are doing FREE Registration, have you thought about it?
1. Tuitions Agencies that do free registration
have a very large database of tutors.
Even they don’t have time to filter genuine tutors from it.
They don’t have genuine leads, they get leads by Just Dial, Sulekha like portals at a very low amount.
They give these leads to tutors just to try their luck if it matures they will charge 50% of the fee amount otherwise not much to worry about.
Free registered tutors can’t complain about it as they also don’t have anything to lose in terms of money.
But they forget that these types of classes lower their moral and leave a negative impression on their mind for this noble profession.
Think yourself, a tuition agency that has genuine leads and sends only one tutor at a time to their clients like VTTS. Every single lead is important for it. Always values its brand authenticity. How can it afford to send an unregistered tutor?
2. Tuition agency may be new to this profession.
May don’t have many leads for you.
3. They simply take your data
and sell them to advertising companies. That’s why they register you even without documents.
4. They give you fake leads,
leads that are even older than a month, just to try their luck. Free registered tutors can’t complain about it.
5. They send 5 to 10 tutors for the same assignment.
Thinking that somebody will fix the assignment.
6. Tuition agency is established in certain locations
and famous in their localities. Now expending itself to new localities where it does not have many leads that’s why it is doing free registration.
