In this guide, we will run through how to sign up as a tutor user and add/link students to your account.
1) Signing up
By visiting https://platform.getmygrades.co.uk/select you will be able to choose which type of account you would like to create. Here, you'll want to click on Tutor!
You'll need to fill in a few details about yourself, and choose a username as well. Then click on sign up and you'll have yourself a Get My Grades account!
2) Welcome to Your Dashboard!
From your dashboard, you'll be able to either add a student or link with an existing student.
2a) Add a student
If a student of yours does not have a Get My Grades account, you can create one for them by clicking on the 'Add student' button on the dashboard.
You will need to let them know the username and password that you set for them. Once you click the 'Add' button, they will appear in your Dashboard.
2b) Link a student
Clicking on your initial on the right-hand side in the top bar will reveal a drop-down menu. In here, you can find 'Settings'.
Click on 'Settings' - this will take you to the Settings page. From here you should click on 'Request Student Link'.
You will need to type in the email account of the parent of your student. In order to link accounts, they will need to already have a Get My Grades account. If they do not yet have an account, they can follow step 1 above and click on 'Family' instead to create their account.
Click on 'Send Request to Link' - once the family member has approved your request you will be able to access the student as requested!
