2020 might as well be called the Year of the Tutor. With learning ending up online more than ever, tutors have gotten their time to shine. However, with the influx of digital work coming in, organization and student management has become more challenging than ever. Boy, do we have the app for you. Bublup is an amazing app for visually organizing and consolidating information in one place.
Bublup is easy to use and improves your productivity. It allows you to collaborate with your students in a central hub for all your links, photos, videos, notes, files, and more, and it complements the tools you’re already using! If you’re using Blackboard, for example, you can go ahead and save your Blackboard links into a folder with other materials you need for your students.
We’ll walk you through the nitty-gritty details throughout this blog post, but here are five tips to get you started!
Bublup is all about folders that help you help your students. You should spend time considering what folder arrangement is best for your tutoring practice. Here are some examples to consider below.
Create Top-Level Folders
Within each top-level folder, you can also create sub-folders. For example, inside “My Materials & Resources,” you can create sub-folders for each online learning platform your students use. Within “Student’s Folders,” you could create sub-folders for each subject, then have your students work out of each sub-folder for each respective class. Within your “Pre-Built Lesson Plans” folder, you can organize based on the subject as well! And finally, for “Marketing Assets,” you can create sub-folders based on the different areas you plan on marketing.
These are just examples, but the opportunities are endless!
Did you know that you can easily save web links, photos, videos, documents, and any other item type in your Bublup folders? That means all the different types of media your students are working with can go in your Bublup folders. Some items you might want to include are:

A major part of tutoring is keeping everyone informed, from your students to their parents and even with other teachers. Luckily, content saved in Bublup is super shareable, and you can do so without ever leaving the app!
Here are several ways to share:
You might be wondering what you’re supposed to do if a parent or teacher wants a quick summary of your work’s successes. Or maybe there’s a new potential client who wants a quick view of what services you provide. Once again, Bublup is the place for you. With our “Roll” feature, you can roll up any folder’s content into a beautiful, single link that anyone can use.
Rolls allow for plenty of customization, so if it’s about a single student, you can edit the text and descriptions to be all about them. If it’s to share all your services with a broader audience, you can cater your content for that. Check out the different possibilities:
Once your roll is complete, you’ll have a super shareable piece of content that will be easy to consume for those already working with you or those interested in your services.
You want your students and their parents to be happy. The more professional everything you share with them looks, the more comfortable they will feel with you and the work you’re doing. Personal touches will take your tutoring service to the next level. Here are some options for you if you grab a Premium account:
