Any suggestions on how to make a "good" listing?
This question is only ask seldomly, but there are many, many tutors who really should ask this question!
Before you submit a listing, make sure you have time to write a carefully and well written listing. Take a look at the listings already posted on the web site. Take note on what looks like a "good" listing to you. Often the listings that get the best responses don't always include the most information.
Read the instructions on the entry form carefully, putting relevant information in the relevant fields. Tutors who try to take the "bare bones" approach are more likely to get error messages and other problems with adding a listing. Make sure you use appropriate language, and proper punctuation and spelling.
Finally, all listings are reviewed by an administrator (yes, an actual person reads your listing before it appears on the web site). If the administrator feels your listing is missing significant information, or needs clarification, you will be e-mailed requesting changes.
After submitting your listing, make sure to check your e-mail regularly. Don't submit a listing just before you plan on being out of the country and unable to check your e-mail for a month. Make sure any mail filters are set to accept e-mail messages from findAtutor.ca.
In summary, if you take your time, and submit a well written listing with complete information, you will quickly have a good looking listing on the findAtutor.ca web site.
