Reviews of WyzAnt by tutors in your community
WyzAnt does the work.
WyzAnt delivers what posting flyers and going through Craigslist couldn't: students. And since WyzAnt requires students to pay in advance, there's little likelihood of no shows. Add to that, WyzAnt handles the finances and direct deposits the tutoring fees to my bank account. I'm quite pleased my tutoring career is beginning to build.
My experience with WyzAnt so far has been pretty good. I haven't booked any jobs, but I think that's mostly because it's summer and everyone is vying for the same few jobs. The website was easy to use and becoming certified in a subject is also quick and painless. I can't speak yet to being paid, but being able to do all this over the internet has really been a blessing.
Great way to find students to tutor!
I started WyzAnt last month and I can't stop raving about it to people. I was thrilled that in less than a week, I already had people messaging me in need of a tutor. I've already tutored several times and it's been great. Parents and students seem to love and trust the site. I like how I can put in my lessons online, so that I can track who I've tutored, for what, and for how long. I also like how the people must have billing information on file, in order to exchange contact information or meeting information with me. That is great protection for us tutors. The email messaging service is also very easy. I haven't even tried to look for jobs, since I've been getting emails. Suggestions I have is to learn simple information about the student such as gender, current school attending, etc. Meeting people at their house can be a little scary sometimes, when you don't the other person and unsure if you can trust them. Otherwise, keep up the great work!
So far my experience with WyzAnt has been excellent! In the first week that I created a profile a student emailed me directly and we set up a total of 3 lessons. The WyzAnt customer service staff was extremely courteous and helpful when I asked a question about creating my profile. Posting a video has enabled me to show potential students who I am. I am also able to see how much my competitors are charging for similar subjects. Overall I am VERY satisfied with my experience with WyzAnt and I look forward to continuing to work with them in the months, and even years to come!
Wyzant is the private tutor's dream come true!
Wyzant delivers students directly to the tutors doorstep, allows the tutor to set his or her own rate and charges only a reasonable percentage for handling all administrative matters. After only six months working for Wyzant, my net percentage increased from 60% of my hourly rate to 75%. The support department is quick, knowledgeable and helpful and the service seems to be gaining in popularity in South Florida. I would highly recommend Wyzant to any person who is serious about offering private tutoring services.
Wyzant, in home tutoring, has really helped me branch out to more students in my area. This service is very convenient for finding students, retaining them, and helps document the progress of all of the students you tutor. I find that students/parents like the fact that Wyzant has screened and has quality tutors within their system. I have a passion for teaching and Wyzant has facilitated the process and made it much easier to find students. Feel free to email me if you have any further questions about my experience.
I think WyzAnt is a great organization, and incredibly easy to use. They are efficient in working with tutors and do a wonderful job in pairing students with the proper instructors to provide a great learning experience. As a tutor, I have had a very enjoyable time working with students, and find the website very easy to navigate and very safe in secure. Thanks!
The most difficult thing about becoming a tutor is connecting with students who will be as reliable as you are. WyzAnt organizes billing for you and your students, gives students many excellent tutors to choose from and tutors many students in need, and lets you set your own hours besides! It's more fruitful than Craigslist and definitely simpler than posting flyer after flyer. WyzAnt gave me full-time summer tutoring hours even while I was undergoing a busy semester at college; no taxing job search necessary.
A great way to find new students
I have been connected with Wyzant for 15 months and am very satisfied. I appreciate Wyzant's strict rule that students must submit payment information before having a lesson. The rule protects tutors as well as the company. I know in advance that the students are trustworthy and I have had no problems with reimbursement. Although Wyzant's percentage was steep before I accumulated 200 and 300 hours (soon to be 400 hours), I have considered Wyzant's share to be fair. Wyzant does all the billing and business work, leaving me free to plan my lessons and tutor. I like the Wyzant logo and the cheerful orange designs. There is an upbeat feeling connected with signing on. I love having my own profile page and the opportunity to write my views on my subjects as well as write a blog. It is very good to require tutors to be certified in their subjects. I have one suggestion: some of us have decades of experience in our fields, yet we compete in the same ballfield with tutors straight out of college--some still in college. This means it is hard to charge the fees we might feel we deserve, because we would price ourselves out of the game. Can you think of any way to group tutors charging $75 to $150 an hour? Wyzant would profit and tutors like me would be happy. I will be raising my fee soon, but I fear the responses and queries from students will quickly drop.
After tutoring on my own accord for some time, I decided to try WyzAnt's site. It was not at all long before I began receiving emails from interested parents. I am now well on my way to building great relationships through WyzAnt's website. Also, on the few occasions that I have made telephone contact with WyzAnt representatives, their responses have been very courteous, and my queries have been attended to very promptly and professionally. Congrats to the WyzAnt team for the well-structured manner in which they conduct their affairs. I expect to remain here well into the future.
