Subscribing as a Tutor or Teacher

Subscription fees & benefits

Tutors and teachers have three subscription options:

  • Individual tutor ($35/year) is intended for private individuals who teach or tutor one-on-one in the student's home. This subscription allows you to submit a post about your offerings to BPN's Tutors & Teachers listing, where it will remain for one year. Your post will appear in the listing under your own name, rather than under a business name. This subscription does not include a profile page on BPN's website. Your post will be published on the BPN website but it will not be included in a newsletter and you will not be included in any of BPN's listings other than the Tutor/Teacher listing.

  • Small Tutor Business ($75/year) This subscription is for individuals who teach or tutor one or more specific subjects, who would like more visibility than the standard tutor subscription provides. In addition to posting to the Tutors & Teachers listing, you will also have a profile page for your business and be included in relevant listings such as "Math Tutors".  You have access to post monthly announcements about your offerings which will appear in our weekly newsletter. You can post about small classes or camps you offer for up to 30 students. See Benefits of a Tutor Business Subscription below. To subscribe as a small tutor business, choose the $75 subscription on this pageNote: The Small Tutor Business subscription is not available to college admissions advisors, educational consultants, or others who advise, consult with or counsel students and parents.
