The pandemic has been erratic, chaotic, and downright frustrating for parents and kids alike, and the situation has left many parents fearing for their children’s academic futures. With schools heading back after the holidays, parents are starting to think about the second half of the school year, and how to help their children succeed in an uncertain, COVID-education world.
Enter The Teacher Marketplace (TTM) to the rescue, offering much-needed help for students and parents alike. TTM has introduced a Tutor Concierge Service where their staff will work one-on-one with parents to take the headache out of finding the perfect educator for their child. A service like this typically costs hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, and TTM is offering it free as part of their regular service for new family accounts.
“We understand that finding the perfect educator for your child can take some time and effort. We have such an amazing community of teachers on our platform and we want to ensure you find one that fits your family’s needs,” according to TTM Head of Marketing, Sherrie Perkovich.
TTM is an amazing online resource to find a good tutor for your child, anywhere in the country, at a cost that fits any parent’s budget. TTM connects accredited teachers and tutors with families for both virtual and in-person private teaching and tutoring. They offer listings for thousands of teachers specializing in a wide array of subjects — from math and science to art, music, and test prep — and cover students from pre-k all the way to college.
With TTM, parents have the flexibility and control to select the tutor that fits their kid’s needs, at a time that works for their family, and a price they can afford.

Created By Parents, For Parents
Brothers Nat and Ben developed TTM out of a need they saw arise during the pandemic: Giving kids anywhere and from different income levels access to affordable academic instruction outside of the classroom. By allowing teachers to set their own pay requirements, TTM is able to expand access to tutoring.
“We built this marketplace for every family,” Ben tells Parentology. “Regardless of economic status, you can find incredibly affordable teachers.” Nat adds, “If you have an hour between school and soccer practice, a student should be able to log in and book extra help with a few clicks.”

To take advantage of their Concierge Service, join for free as a family and then you will be prompted to answer a few short questions about your child’s educational needs to begin utilizing the service.
