What Is Douroosi?

Douroosi is a learning platform where tutors can promote their skills and expertise on their profile, attract parents and students and get paid to teach from around the world.

Is Douroosi affiliated with any teaching associations, governments or third-parties?

Douroosi is an independent party, and we developed our platform to benefit tutors and students directly without the influence from third-parties.  All tutors work from the same base based on tiers- we don’t play favorites.

Does Douroosi pair tutors with students?

We do not directly pair students with tutors, the best way to market themselves is by having an attractive (and honest) profile, a good intro photo and video, and to maintain a good average rating by previous successful sessions.  The tutor’s ability to market themselves to parents or students is the most effective way to convey their credentials and immediately build a connection and rapport.  We will have additional opportunities for tutors to help them promote themselves in the upcoming months.

What are the ways tutors can work with students?

Help for students can come in many ways!  The opportunities to work with students ranging from subject support to exam preparation to class projects and more.

Does Douroosi provide lesson plans or teaching materials?

Every teacher brings their value and approach to working with students. It is crucial that tutors are able to understand and connect with students fully.  Tutors are responsible for creating their lesson plans, securing and providing the necessary supporting materials and we’re confident this is the best way to make the essential connection.
