The application does take a while to be processed, but it is not too time-consuming. The work is very flexible, since you can go online whenever you want to and can receive notifications when someone needs help. The downside is that tutoring opportunities are pretty spontaneous and unpredictable, unless you build connections with regular students. There are also not always many students online, so it can be a race to claim a student to tutor. I think the pay should be slightly higher, considering TutorMe's profit margin, but it is still a worthwhile and convenient job!
This is a perfect part-time job for the above reasons. The problem is that you have to scramble for work; there is zero benefits/support/training; there are serious tech problems on the site; you are subject to frequent threatening emails from whoever monitors everything you type and say; the supervisors always side with the student, if there is a problem. Staff are neither respected; appreciated; asked for feedback; nor supported in any way. They pay a mere $16/hour for experienced/certified teachers, yet they charge clients $60. Not a reputable nor humane business model.
This site can be a good place to quickly earn a few extra dollars part-time as a contractor by sharing your knowledge. The downside is that you don't know anything about the grade level of subject tutees ahead of time. Also, you are paid only about 11 dollars for 45 minutes of work while they charge clients like 60 dollars or more for that time period.
It’s hard to get students at first, but it is a good way to make extra cash. The rating system is the only downside. Students can rate you low for technical issues, trying to cheat, or other silly reasons. There is no recourse for that, and it can affect the number of lessons you get.
I started tutoring on here about 1 month ago and have been able to log on and have students come to me regularly for help! I can set my own schedule and the Honor Code on here is strict to maintain great academic integrity!
