I've had a lot of people asking for more clarity on the differences between registering as an "independent tutor" or just as a "tutor". This has been answered in the following Q&A link: http://bloomstutors.com.au/qa/view/517-difference-between-profile-types but I thought I'd try shed some more light on the differences to help make your decision easier!
|¬†||Independent Tutor||Blooms Tutor|

|Will students see my contact details?||Yes||No|
|Will students be able to contact me directly?||Yes||No|

|Will students pay me directly?||Yes||No|
|How will I be paid?||However you choose||Via EFT|
|Will Blooms advertise on my behalf?||As part of blanket advertising||Blanket & some targeted promoting|
|Will I have full use of the Blooms website facilities?||Yes||Yes|

|Do I have to submit any forms or documents?||No||Yes, a number of screening documents are required to be filed before sessions can commence|

Hope that sums things up clearly!
