Only useful for experience, pay is insubstantial
EDITING CONSULTANT/PRIVATE TUTOR (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – March 13, 2018
$17 per hour provided to tutors when average rate is $40-50. Contract workers for Varsity Tutors are provided with clients who do not entirely match with proficient level of study, and sometimes not even the right field of study. When a client requests a study skills tutor, normally this means they don't actually want a study skills tutor, but a tutor for a specific field of study. Varsity Tutors HQ does not inquire further and leaves issue to be resolved between client and tutor.
Pay is often eaten up by gas and vehicle maintenance and other transportation costs as clients provided often live far outside preferred area. Clearly, Varsity Tutors tries to set up new clients with effective tutors, but fail to persuade clients to meet tutors online, which forces tutors to spend the money they earn on transportation instead of supplies for activities, which also have to be supplied by tutor.
I don't know how much Varsity Tutors charge clients, but the lion's share goes to the company and not to the tutor who works on the front lines with students and clients.
