Can't Recommend This Employer
Tutor (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 24, 2018
I've worked at Varsity Tutors for just under a year and can not, in good conscience, recommend applying here. The method to get work through VT is by applying on a board of job postings; you are entirely at the mercy of the company to consider whether or not you are actually assigned any work. As such, depending on your approved subjects, you may find yourself working 2-3 hour weeks for $15 to $22 an hour. For instance, in the last 2 weeks I have put my name on the list for every post I have seen on the job board and have been given 0 assignments. I am actively seeking employment elsewhere since at the moment, I am essentially unemployed with Varsity Tutors. Other online tutoring services such as Wyzant offer significantly better compensation, and tutoring in-person independently is a much better alternative than through a third party that takes a majority cut of the hourly cost of your sessions. Bottom line, I strongly suggest not applying to Varsity Tutors.
Work from home, frequent direct deposit payment
Terrible hours, bad hourly pay, experience with clients varies
