What is a typical day like for you at Varsity Tutors?

14 answers

  • I set my own schedule of students to teach and follow that schedule each week. I choose to only work 2 days a week in the afternoons and evenings.

  • You are an independent contractor, so you make your own schedule

  • As a tutor: sitting around and waiting for opportunities and excusing yourself to answer VT push notifications immediately no matter what you're doing. This won't get you any work for at least several weeks, but apparently it's necessary to prove your dedication. After that you might get some tutoring sessions, which typically go well and are as fulfilling and normal as any tutoring job.

  • Checking my dashboard schedule, preparing for my classes and completing invoices immediately following, which include providing a detailed overview of topics I covered, outcomes learned by the students, or myself and to-dos you want parents to be sure the students complete.

  • Clients are changing to the point now where Varsity wants the tutor to develop the curriculum for students so I log in 5 minutes early, prep our lesson work by uploading it, teach the material, review it with the student writing their answers on the board step by step, and then I sent them the blanks of what we did with an answer sheet afterwards via email. Then I log the session with Varsity. We are paid twice a week.

  • I tend to have sessions either back to back or with small breaks in between, in order to have as many sessions as I can without being overwhelmed. I also tend to be M-F, 10-6. I usually have at least 2-3 classes that I teach per day, sometimes more like 5, with fewer individual sessions. I often begin by checking over my materials for the day, and saving more as I go along the day interacting with students. I also check on my schedule throughout. When I get a longer break or have more time before or after work, I usually lesson plan. I find grade-level worksheets for students, save them on my computer, and make sure to pull them all up before our session starts.

  • There isn't really a typical day. You and the students schedule sessions together, so some days you might only have one session, or you might be trying to squeeze in as many as you can every day.

  • You set your own hours. I tutor in the evening and weekends. I teach fulltime during the weekdays. You can be as busy as you want to be.

  • A typical day was driving to locations to tutor students.

  • Scrambling and waiting for instant tutoring or meeting with students who may or may not show up, when they do it's great! the platform is fun to use
