Step #1: Create A CPA Tutor Boost Account (Duh!)

CPA Tutor Boost is designed to empower its tutors to provide the EXACT services that you are best at to a wide number of CPA candidates.

We do all the hard work of finding people for you to tutor so that you don’t have too.

Ain’t nobody got time to constantly be trolling LinkedIn groups looking for people to tutor!

However, before we can send you any tutorees, it’s on you to create the jobs, price your services and execute on your services when they are purchased.

It’s also important to note that our marketplace is reputation-based.

Goal #1 for you will be to start earning as many ratings as possible.

In order to do this you will need to price your tutor jobs as competitively as you can until you have gained a strong reputation in the community.

It may take a month or two for you to achieve profitability, but the hard work will be worth it once you have achieved a “Top Tutor” rating.

FYI – the higher your Tutor Level/Feedback Rating, the more of your tutor fees you get to keep and the more jobs you can post!

CPA Tutor Boost is a marketplace that is built on trust.

Every Tutor gets feedback on a 5 star rating scale after each job is completed.

Only approved buyers are eligible to leave reviews which is important to know.

Here’s more info on our feedback system and our checks and balances.

So how do you achieve a 5 star rating?

Step #2: Be responsive. Try to respond in less than 12 hours.
