Tutorfair is a privately held company headquartered in London, UK that operates the non-profit charity: the Tutorfair Foundation [1]. The company is the first online service that provides a marketplace platform for individuals to provide private tutoring services to parents in the UK.[1] Every lesson includes an optional donation to support the Tutorfair Foundation.[2][3]

Listings include tutors for academic subjects such as Mathematics, English and Sciences, as well as other services such as chess. Tutors must register and create a personal online profile before using the site. The tutor must write a personal statement, submit a list of qualifications and list the subjects they are able to tutor in. Each profile includes a photograph, a video, reviews by previous clients, as well as a response rating and private messaging system.[4]
