Saves me hours and ££ every month!

5.0 6 months ago

Comments: I find it really simple to use. It was completely set up for all of my clients and tutors within half a day. It has since saved me hours of admin work each month, and also means that follow up is more timely and accurate.

Pros:

I have been operating my business since 2012 and using TutorBird since 2021. It saves me hours of time in admin but also keeps accurate details and records of clients and lessons, so it improves customer service.

Cons:

I would like to be able to integrate with other apps to reduce even more admin time. This isn't currently possible within Tutorbird.

Alternatives Considered: TutorCruncher

Reasons for Switching to TutorBird: It is more cost effective and much easier to use.

Excellent CMS for any Education Service

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: The main feature I wanted from Tutorbird was the ability to organise all my clients, their details, lessons, notes and emails with automated and quick/comfortable systems (instead of having to slowly input all the details in a spreadsheet, and individually email / bcc clients, which I did for years). TB absolutely smashed the ball out of the park in this regard!

Pros:

My business mixes two different forms of education, Music and Martial Arts. Every other CMS service I looked at seemed to dedicate it's features to one or the other, not both subjects (including Tutorbird's sister site MyMusicStaff). Tutorbird was the CMS I was looking for, as I could specify different subjects and make the planning / organising / scheduling work well for both sectors. The automated BCC for emails and text messages has also been a wonderful feature. I started using TB a few years ago and it's been such a boon to my business! I'm thoroughly glad that I made the leap to this system.

Cons:

There aren't really any features I dislike. I'd say the only 'con' if you can call it that, is having redundant features (for my business personally) like the Lending Library and the Website Builder. I'm sure these are also great features for other users, but they are just clutter for me. I'd like to have the option to 'hide' unused features.

Great product some improvements needed for better international functionality

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Pros:

Ease of access and set up. Client user functionality, student access and overall userability are all excellent. A brilliant product.

Cons:

Fundamental reason we use this product is for scheduling. However, we would like to see the ability to allocate the tutor to a timezone, where their lessons automatically change time based on the selected timezone instead of having to manually change this.

Best tool I found for a tutoring company

3.0 6 months ago

Comments: Good

Pros:

Many options , easy to personalize to each student needs

Cons:

No undo button. Once you did something is very hard to repair. The view on the iPhone, there are some features missing still. Sometimes is having errors and I need to check manually all payments, the note taking system is very confusing. Most important the most important report is missing. How much I spent for a student (by paying other tutors) and how much is left for the company. If I want to make a discount, I need to calculate manually

I love TutorBird!

5.0 6 months ago

Pros:

Tutorbird is a very simple and straightforward program for managing tutoring appointments and billing. It has saved me a ton of time compared to the business I used to run before I started to use Tutorbird and I can focus my efforts more on the communications with clients that matter most, truly!

Cons:

The student side of Tutorbird is a bit heavy with features that I don't all use, so there has sometimes been a bit of confusion from clients on how to focus on just the features that I use. I do wish that unused features could be switched off on the client side. Other than that, though, once clients are familiar with the program and how registration with me works on Tutorbird, everything from scheduling to billing runs fairly autonomously and automatically.

Alternatives Considered: Pike13

Reasons for Switching to TutorBird: TutorBird's pricing was significantly better than competing products with the same core features.
