About Us

  The BuffTutor Network was created to make it as easy as possible for students to find experienced and affordable tutors. Founded in 2009 by a couple of graduate students with a passion for teaching, we have rapidly grown into a fast and effective tutor referral service. Our tutor list includes former professors and teachers, full time tutors, graduate and undergraduate students. All of our tutors have at least one year of teaching/tutoring experience.

Get A Tutor In 2 Easy Steps

1) Request A Tutor - we recommend that you search for a tutor that you want to work with and include his/her name on your request form.
2) Get matched with an available tutor within 48 hours (typically in 12-24 hours).
That's it!  Once we have matched you with one of our tutors, we will create a BuffTutor account for you where you will be able to easily access your tutor's contact information, submit tutor session payments (payments must be received BEFORE the session occurs), and keep track of all your tutor sessions.  You are then free to meet with your tutor whenever and wherever works for the two of you!

Six Reasons To Choose The BuffTutor Network

Student Deriving Formulas1 We Vet Tutors For You!

Not just any tutor can become a BuffTutor. All of our tutors are interviewed to evaluate not only their academic achievements, but also their teaching ability. We also ask our students to evaluate their tutors to ensure that we maintain only the best tutors on our roster.

2 Affordable Tutors With Flexible Schedules

We have tutors who can fit even the tightest budget. Search our tutor list for a tutor who fits your budget and your schedule. Each tutor's profile includes a summary of academic and teaching accomplishments, reviews from previous students, calendars displaying their availability, and hourly rate.  

3 Rapid Turnaround Time

We understand that you need help NOW. On average, we are able to match a student with a tutor in the first 12-24 hours. Whether or not we have a tutor for you, you will hear back from us in 48 hours.

4 Satisfaction Guaranteed

If you are not satisfied with your tutor’s performance in the first session, you will receive a full refund. If you were originally happy with your tutor, but his/her performance declines, you may terminate sessions with that tutor at any point and receive a partial refund for the last hour of the last tutor session.  

NOTE: If your tutor is not the perfect match for you, you are welcome to switch tutors at any point in time.

5 Online Tutor Management Tools

Our online management tools makes it easy to keep track of all tutor payments, sessions and charges.

6 Quick and Easy Payment Options

We accept payments by PayPal, Credit/Debit Card (processed by PayPal), Cash or Check. We require an UPFRONT payment before a student will be allowed to meet with a tutor (this protects our students as they can easily receive a refund if they are unsatisfied with their tutor's performance). A student may pay upfront for sessions one at a time or multiple sessions at a time. With our online tools, you will easily be able to keep track of your payments and session charges. At the end of the semester, or when you decide to end your tutor sessions, you will receive a full refund for any unused prepaid tutor sessions.
