Tutor platform needs some work
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) – Remote – October 16, 2017
If you have a degree, it's pretty easy to be approved to tutor on this platform and the hourly rate is decent. The problem is that there are so many tutors that it is extremely competitive to actually get a student and since students are able to contact you initially without paying, they consistently waste 5-10 minutes of your time trying to get help for free only to ultimately sign off when it's time to start a paid lesson. There are also a lot of students looking to cheat and just want someone to do the work for them (which is obviously against the company code of ethics). I think it's worthwhile to sign up, but this is supplemental income at best. Don't expect this to be any type of primary job.
