I have noticed a lot of problems in the Answers list that seem not to be submitted by students. It's apparent because the problems are too general, or not worded like a student issue. I feel that I'm wasting my time answering questions that no one is interested in on a practical basis for his/her classes, and that my time is not well spent answering questions when no one will read the solutions. I think Wyzant should require students to specify the school and the class that they are taking, or at least submit a learning plan if they are in a self-study program, in order to submit questions on "Answers". This would go a long way toward eliminating extraneous questions. I am going to stop answering questions that I think are not submitted by real students.
What's happening in the world of private tutoring?

So I was asked to fill out a survey in regards to whether I would recommend Wyzant. Sixty percent of those polled said they would recommend the site- including myself. What I don't understand is why someone would not recommend WyzAnt. For me, it has been a very positive experience and it has helped me build students. They have paid me on time, every time; inform me when there's a new perspective student or when a student has sent an inquiry. WyzAnt, in my opinion, has done everything right in the business sense. And, if a tutor is not happy, why bash WyzAnt? Just don't apply for any jobs!!!
