Tutor at WyzAnt (Current Employee) – Arlington VA – August 21, 2013
Great company. You can find tutoring jobs in your area from their website. I wish they would increase compensation for tutors, though. Easy payment (direct deposit to checking account). I've always been paid as promised on time for hours tutored. Easy website - very user friendly!
Excellent platform for professional tutors to network and tutor!

I have been a professional tutor with WyzAnt for approximately 2 years and the experience has been excellent! WyzAnt allows me to network (safely) with a large list of students in my area. I will continue to tutor through WyzAnt for the years to come!

Wyzant gives a great opportunity to reach out and help students in need of help to succeed with the various classes they are struggling with. It pays off commission. It also gives background checks so as to help the student and tutors meet up and feel safe.
Spanish Tutor (Current Employee) – Gwinnett County, GA – June 28, 2017
I have a great opportunity to tutor different culturally background children. I enjoy the experience and made me learn from them too. Some problems that I have had was that some students live far from me and that some time they did not use my service for a long time.

I have really loved my time with Wyzant. Through them, I have become both a better tutor and a better writer. The best part of working for Wyzant is the moment of realization in a student's face when they suddenly understand a concept with which they had been struggling. The scheduling is very simple; you make your own hours, and you determine how many students you wish to take on at a time. I highly recommend working for them!
Set your own schedule, easy environment

Set your own travel area. tutor as many people as you are able and competent to. Set your own hourly rate based on your competency. Wyzant sets you up with students and you take care of the rest. There are so many subjects to tutor and you are in charge of your own schedule. Some tutors make a living wage with this job, so the possibilities are endless.
Work on your schedule, have as many students as you can handle.
Excellent resource for running a Tutoring business.
Tutor (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – April 28, 2017
Wyzant helped me get my foot in the door in what has become an extremely competitive field in the Houston, TX. area. With the wide variety of cultures and extreme competition in scholastic achievements and many foreign students with language challenges, Wyzant is a frequented website in search of qualified Tutors. The company business model convenience and reliability of pay is key. They hold you to a high level of accountability which I feel they reciprocate. The website and app management is friendly and the support quick and friendly as well. They reward loyalty, consistency with visibility and pay percentage increase. Flexibility is wonderful, I work where when and with whom I choose.
Flexibility, Reliability, Support, Pay, Friendly
They take a large percentage, but yours grows quickly and the start pay is up to you. Local Travel required.

Wyzant is one of the better tutoring sites that I have been involved with. The site is easy to navigate and many parents are looking for tutors for their kids. The problem is that all transactions and scheduling must be done through the site. This means that it takes a lot of effort on both sides to makes an appointment happen. They also take quite a big cut of the per hour pay until you tutor a min number of hours. It is like a tier system where those who teach 100+ or above will get a high percentage of their compensation.

Wyzant provides advertisement and students for your tutoring "career". Thus, they take 30% of your hourly rate once you reach 50 hours of tutoring (before that they take 40%). If you do not mind the amount of money they make, it is fine as a supplemental/part-time income. I've been very fortunate to tutor bright students who just needed a little more confidence or extra time to study over their course work. I have found the experience tutoring to be overall a very positive one!

Tutor (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 6, 2017
Great way to find clients for your tutoring business. Certifies tutors in subjects so clients know they are hiring competent tutors. I tutored math, physics, and CAD. Learned a lot about how to share my knowledge with other students efficiently and effectively. Hardest part of job was driving all over Washington, DC metro area, and finding mutually-agreeable public meeting places for tutoring. Most enjoyable part of job was gratitude from students and parents as to how much I helped their studies.
Private Tutor (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – February 14, 2017
Wyzant takes the hassle out of tutoring, especially for those of us just starting out, like me. They review and either approve my qualifications for each subject I would like to tutor in, give advice on what kind of service to provide and jobs to take on, and do a great job of alerting me of when other jobs come up. They also have a second to none customer service line - when I had a complicated issue with a parent, Wyzant's customer service person on the phone was both competent and caring in helping me make sense of how to address it. I recommend 100%.
Awesome Customer Service, Payment Handled on Wyzant's End
Can Take Some Time to Start Making Bigger Amounts of Money
Tutor (Current Employee) – Ocean, NJ – February 4, 2017
WyzAnt is a great tool for building a tutoring business from the ground up. As an independent contractor using the company for leads and job postings, I find that WyzAnt made it easy to grow my tutoring business and allow me to have many more students than I would have through just word-of-mouth.
