Excellent Service. Easy to use. Responsive to our needs.
I was skeptical at first but after we completed the first tutoring session I was completely happy! I found WyzAnt via a google search for an AP Biology Tutor for my son. It was easy to enter the information the WyzAnt website requested. I was able to look at the bio's for several potential tutors and send them an email. I got responses from several tutors right away. I even got responses from tutors I did not contact, which was fine. It was helpful to start the selection process before I had to commit my credit card to the system. The price was right so when I went to the site again the next day and had no qualms about signing up. As soon as I set up the billing I get another email from the tutor and we made arrangements for the first session. She showed up right on time, got right to work and was kind enough to stay afterward to speak with my husband and I. We didn't have to have cash available to pay her because the billing took place overnight behind the scene. Really cool! I'd say we are off to an excellent start!
The website seems to provide a service that the high school does not. I spoke with the school counselor previously but he did not have tutor referrals except for student tutors. WyzAnt provides a private tutoring service that is confidential and offers a diverse selection of tutors and subjects. I save time and money using this service. My son is pleased and encouraged. The tutor we selected was recruited by her college. My son is being recruited so this was a added benefit for him. I would definitely use this service again. I did not have to use the phone and I did not have to wait for return calls. It could have taken a lot longer to find a tutor. I would like to know how WyzAnt selects people to be tutors because I noticed that a few of the folks who responded to me were working adults with no experience in tutoring and no recent academic experience. I have found that the best tutors are the ones who know the specific curriculum at the school the student attends. The tutor I selected graduated from college this year. She stated that she took AP Biology as a senior in high school. Her major was biology. For these reasons I selected her even though her high school education was out of state.
