I want to advertise, but my city is not listed.  Can I still advertise?

If you want to list your tutoring services on our website and the city where you tutor is not included in our database, simply choose the city that is closest to your location and create your advertisement there.  You can tell users your exact location in the description portion of your profile.

You can also email us your exact city, and we will try to include it in our next update.  After your city is added to our database, you can update your advertisement to reflect the new city.

I want to advertise, but my subject is not listed.  Can I still advertise?

If the subject you tutor is not included in our database and you want to list your services on Tutor Index, choose the subject that is the most similar to your specific discipline.  You can let users know your exact specialty in the description section of your profile.

In addition, you can email us your specialty, and we will try to include your subject in our next update.  After your subject has been added, you can update your advertisement accordingly.
