Hi all, you get a little money as a side gig, but it is a satisfying experience. The reason its a side gig is you never know wen opportunities come. There is too much competition,

There was limited jobs mostly physics and people just wanted you to do their work not actually tutor them. When you would tell them you will not do it they became hostile.
Pros
Very flexable hours and compensation
Cons
Not a diverse choice of topics

I love working for this company; however, there is no room for advancement, no matter how many years you work for them. They do give bonuses throughout the year, but not all the tutors always receive the bonuses. If they would offer some sort of pay advancement, even based on number of students or hours worked, this company would be great. In addition, there is no job security, so it is hard to depend on the income.

You choose when you want to tutor, who you want to tutor, and over what subjects. Although sometimes hard to find students, there is many opportunities over time to accrue a range of repeat students and to make money.
Pros
Flexible, Make your own Hours
Cons
Not secure, No defined Hours

$20/hour is not bad, and building a customer base of students that trust you is personally fulfilling. Exam season provides competitive pay with rates raising to $60-$80/hour on some days, which is awesome. However, the “off-season” is particularly slow and you are not guaranteed tutoring opportunities even with high ratinfs

You do all your own tutoring for $20/hr. You can tutor whenever is convenient for you. If you have any issues with the website or reviews, you can contact Chegg and they will respond fairly quickly. Extremely helpful. Tutor a wide range of subjects. I wish the hourly rate was a little bit better but honestly not that big of a deal $20/hr is a fair rate. There is no compensation/benefits as you are basically a consulting business. There is no really advancement in the job. And as far as job security, it depends mostly on the amount of students using the service which also varies throughout the year. Good way to make side money though and strengthen your knowledge in old subjects.
Pros
Decent salary, extremely flexibile, responsive team, good customer base, and overall great job.
Cons
Not enough people on the platform, customers vary through the year, no job advancement.

Applying to be a tutor at Chegg was one of the best decisions I made while studying at college. The pay was more than sufficient for helping afford food and rent every month, and the fact that I could log in at any time meant there were zero conflicts with school work or any other obligations. Furthermore, it was fantastic teaching old stuff I had learned as a way to keep it fresh, while simultaneously honing my teaching and communication skills. Finally, it was very rewarding teaching other students and keeping up with them later on to hear how they were progressing.
Pros
Extremely flexible schedule, good compensation, rewarding work
Cons
Sparse hours, especially starting off

It was a great job because there are flexible hours, you don't have to be consistent with your time commitment and it was something that you could do from the comfort of your own home.

This online service is a great addition for students not only to rent books, but receive instruction for their subjects. However, there are few oppurtunities for the instructors to get lessons because of either the lack of students or the vast amount of tutors online flooding the site.
Pros
Compensation and Flexibility
Cons
Opportunities and Legitamacy of Students

Just started and I’ve got the students calling me sir. I’m only 24 haha. Anyway it’s great, you get to help appreciative students, get paid a lot, and work from home. How can you beat that!?
Pros
Money, Appreciation
Cons
Need more hours to tutor. Or more money per hour.

Fun to work with students and by design it's great if you need a flexible schedule, best mixed with a second job or a difficult university schedule. However hours can be very unpredictable, only Sundays are "busy", other days can have entirely random schedules.
Pros
Remote work, flexible.
Cons
Pay can be unpredictable, benefits are also unpredictable.

Tutoring online for chegg is basically a good side hustle. No, you probably won't make enough to pay your car note or mortgage but you can probably get a light bill or gas paid if tutoring during the school year. It is a good position for college students who need extra cash.
