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.

It has slowly deteriorated

I’ve been working with Wyzant as a tutor since 2012. Back then you were able to eventually get up to 95% of your hourly rate. It was based on how many hours you accumulated and on consistently getting good reviews. There were always so many students and job opportunities. Now there aren’t as many openings (they’ve lost students), and they charge a flat 25% fee from your hourly rate! But not only that, they also charge students an additional 9% “platform fee.” I feel like they’re trying to grab as much money as they can on their way out. It’s no longer worth it to work here.

  • Clear sense of purpose
  • Time and location flexibility

Wyzant is a perfect company to work comfortably from house with a good salary and a schedule that meets the tutor's needs.

This company is perfect for me because I can choose days and hours of work. I decide how much I charge for the lessons given, and they have never set the price for my lessons. The CEO is constantly posting articles that are useful to us tutors. After my work was done, they deposited five days later in my bank account. In summary, I feel thrilled and very fulfilled working with them since 2010


The tutor can choose how much he charges for his lessons as well as the days to work.


No paid vacation and no sick days.

Be careful with the details. They will try to take advantage of you.

What is the best part of working at the company?They offer a platform to find and meet with clients.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?They take a large percentage of what clients pay and they can be quite sneaky about it. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?You set your own hours. Basically, you are self-employed.

Work from home, set your own rate, overall good experience

There is a ton of available work if you set your rate low. Working from home saves you a ton of time in commuting etc. Payments are fast - within 3 -5 days - and reliable. Overall a good source of a bit of work when was between jobs. I could easily have scheduled 8 hours a day of tutoring with all the requests I got.

Share your experience to help others

It was okay for a while.

It was great, but after COVID happened, it was becoming harder at finding students to teach. And because I prefer face-to-face communication, instead of video calling or over the phone tutoring sessions, it really takes away the ability to build trust and actually know what the student needs help with, since I wouldnt be able to see the materials.

Good Amount of Clients, but at a Price

I've worked at Wyzant for the past 4 years and they've offered me a solid amount of clients over the years in math and science tutoring, but they do take 25% of your earnings with no opportunities for reduction in this rate, which seems unfair to me.

Flexible work hours

Really good place to work if you are interested in helping others learn and providing educational services. You can pick your own hours too, which is great.

Decent online marketplace

Wyzant is a good website for freelance tutors looking for students online and in person. It can be tough to get established on Wyzant, and you have to pass tests to qualify to teach subjects. Be careful when you take the tests since they do not let you retake if you fail.

Convenient Online Platform

As a contract basis, it is a good platform to work for. You can set your own hours and rates. You do have to pay Wyzant 25% f your rate, but you can calculate how much you can make after you pay the 25%. Wyzant works on the marketing and will bring students to the platform. You will be competing with other tutors, afterall the prospect student will have to choose your profile. I was able to have a decent work pace.

Flexible hours

You're allowing Wyzant to become the middle man between you finding students and vice versa. It's great for any instructor to tutor in their respective fields with the software Wyzant provides. You can set your hours and teach however you'd like without following a specific curriculum. And the best part is that you can set your hourly rate.

Steady work, low pay

Wyzant is a legit company, but private tutoring pays significantly better. Additionally, you are an independent contractor, so you are responsible for withholding your own taxes, which adds on to the responsibilities that you have as a tutor. They have a fee schedule based on how many hours you work, but at first, between planning, travel, communicating, and calculating your own taxes, you make <$20/ hour. They're a good company if you're fine with that.

the worst

If you make a mistake at wyzant, you get the death penalty. There are no second chances. Even if you make a small mistake, they kill your career with them.

Really Good Place to Find Clients as a Freelancer

I have been teaching through Wyzant and it has been great. I like that everything is in one place: classroom, payments, communication, scheduling. I just wish they lower their percentage for tutors that like me, have taught not hundreds but thousands of hours at this point. Taking 25% is a lot, taking into account that they also charge the students a fee.

If you know the subject matter, explain yourself well and know your material jobs works very well.

What is the best part of working at the company?Flexibility in days and hours worked, chance to determine own hours too.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Always had to be prepared for questions that might be asked you. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?You are individually working with one or two students in your agreed upon location. Culture is relaxed or how you want it to be.What is a typical day like for you at the company?It was not an 8 hour day, days were only two to three hours at a time.

Like working for them, but it's very tough getting new students

Very good infrastructure, but it's challenging getting new students. There seem to be so many tutors offering their services that much of the work goes to the ones already earning, i.e., there's a high saturation. The more you earn, the more requests you get, and vice versa. So it's very difficult to break into the business.

Great Place but Tech Issues

Wyzant is a great place to start a career in tutoring but often times there are tech glitches with the whiteboard and messaging system. Despite this, I would recommend this company!
