Tutor in Reston, VA
on April 20, 2013
Self-management
Great if one gets into self-managing. May have it as a job on the side still. In a big city, difficult with traffic and a strain due to that. Still, good for starting to learn how to run one's own business.

I started tutoring Statistics, Math, and Physics on Wyzant on February 2021 and it has been a success for me. Although they do retain 25% of your pay, it is still worth it. Plus, I can literally take the work with me whenever I go anywhere

I work as a tutor with Wyzant since 2015. I loved the fact that tutors could fix their rates. For years the low average was $35. The incentive when I started was that the more you were working with them, less Wyzant was taking on your rate. Basically, you were starting with them taking 40%, then after 100 hours working with their students, they would retain 35% for the platform fee, then 30%. I think the lowest they would take was 15%. Well, after some years they decided to change the rules and to fix the rate they take at 25% for everybody! It was just when I was supposed to reach the 20% platform fee. Moreover, the algorithm always made it very difficult to have new students. Even if your reviews are excellent and you work all the time with them and answer very quickly to job requests. A good point is that if your student cancels at the last minute the lesson, you are free to apply cancellation fees which can be the whole hour scheduled with your student. However, these last months, I noticed that students request very low rates such as $15 or $20 per hour. I checked online and saw that Wyzant was advertising these fees! I checked the sales benefits of Wyzant for 2020 to see if they suffered from the Covid 19 pandemic and they report record-breaking growth. I noticed as well they do not expect their new tutors to have real credentials as it was before. It means that you are competing with people without real credentials who are ready to teach for very low fees. Regarding the support from Wyzant, all these years, I tried to communicate with them to share with them the improvements they should do to help their tutors to do business and to satisfy their customers (the students). I have never seen them implement anything. They do not communicate with their tutors but on the positive side, you have total freedom. To finish with another positive note, you are paid 5 days after you submitted the lesson.
Tutor in Greenville, PA

I've tutored with many sites, and through a college and Wyzant has definitely provided the best experience for me so far. They do take a 25% cut from your overall tutoring charge, but scheduling is easy, students and teachers can find each other without much difficulty, the messaging system is quite convenient, and the record-keeping is good. I don't love the online tutoring platform part of the site, though, so I tend to use Zoom instead of their lesson platform. Otherwise though, Wyzant has been really helpful!
Tutor in Remote

This is a chill side gig, I tutor English language/literature, history, and French. Unless you're good at math or computer coding, I don't really think you can make this full-time, but if you're looking for a good side hustle and are not in a time crunch, it's quite nice! You can choose your students, your hours, your rates, etc., although bear in mind Wyzant takes 30%--so I charge $29/hr but I only actually am paid $20.30/hr. That's pretty good to me though!

The only barrier to sign up is a brief test in each subject area you wish to teach. You must pass 80% of the questions. Be aware that some of the questions may not have correct answers. Whoever wrote the organic chemistry entrance quiz does not understand periodic trends in electronegativity.
