I've had a stellar experience working for Tutor.com. I started in college, and loved the flexible hours - I could just sign on any time and "float," waiting for a match with students. The Classroom interface is superb: simple enough for students to easily understand and adapt to, but complex enough to allow for ease of use no matter what mathematical topic we discuss. You can create graphs instantly, draw any number of shapes with the available tools, and if one whiteboard fills up you can create another with the click of a button (up to 12 max). Additionally, Tutor.com's "prescripted messages" are very well thought out, and have saved me hundreds of sentences of typing :)
Great for extra income and flexibility of working from home or remotely.
Tutor (Current Employee) – Remote – July 18, 2016
I began working for Tutor.com in July of 2016 after I left my teaching position with the Tyler ISD due to health concerns. The job offers me the ability to continue in the education field while working from home. Summertime hours are very limited and the availability of hours during a "normal" work day are also. However, during the regular school year there are far more hours available at better times to work. The stress level is incredibly low. The resources and tools provided by the company are excellent. The pay is not great, but it is certainly not terrible. This job is perfect for me at this point in time because of the fact that my health is not the best, and my ability to travel to work and work a "typical" job is limited. I would recommend Tutor.com to anyone looking to supplement their income while working from home.
Private Tutor (Current Employee) – Davis, CA – July 28, 2015
The students were well disciplined and very smart. Co-workers were kind and worked hard. Typical day would be to go to the school and meet with your assigned student and tutor them in whatever subject he/she needed help with for that day.

Always opportunities to travel and meet new people. Great management, and the most enjoyable part of the job is we help out the community to take advantage of what's out there for their kids' education.
Student Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Jackson, MS – December 27, 2014
Administering tutorials for after school children to increase each child's learning skills; therefore, no child left behind. The job was easy and meaningful to help someone in need. The hardest part of the job was locating some of the addresses.
Mainly focused on schools that were under a level 3-4 school level, our job as a teacher specialist we tutored on computers in the home.
Each child receive a mini laptop if their scores were proficient or had increased dramatically.
Team Lead/Tutor (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – November 30, 2014
We work with a lot of children and I really enjoy it, kids are so fun and full of life. To be able to help a child gives my life purpose. We are role models for them and it feels good to hear them tell us all the dreams they have when they grow up because they are the future. Every day we learn something new and I love that about life. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting a child that is so curious and is like a sponge wanting to know everything and is respectful. I love my job!
Helping our youth with Reading tools to help them progress
Field Educational Representative (Former Employee) – Laredo, TX – March 20, 2014
A typical day at work would be gathering information on those students needing to home visit and help them with their progress. What I learned was that every student had their own learning methods or style, but it was inspiring to witness their progress after every home visit. Management were somewhat absent in our needs throughout the program, but tried to provide us some guidance when students were available or not for a home visit by a field educational representative. My co-workers were somewhat understanding or freely able to give some responses on past experiences in the field. The hardest part of the job was when trying to get a student to respond to your calls and scheduling of a visit when having drove to their home. The most enjoyable part of the job was when you felt that you had a productive hour with the student during your visit.
the feeling of being helpful towards achieving their goals.
when students were not responsive to visits or calls.
This was my first work at home job. I enjoyed calling the students to remind them to log into their systems and tutor. The company supplied the phones, netbooks for the students to do their tutoring. Even though I live in Chicago, the company was in Texas. The supervisory staff was very nice and helpful if you ran into any problems. Most of the students spoke another language but, could understand me when I called . The language was mainly Spanish but, most of the students were bilingual.
