While I did some tutoring on the side, both as an undergraduate as well as when I was in graduate school, I never really did it for the money. I did it because I thought science was the coolest thing on earth and I wanted to infect other people with my excitement for the subject. Now, all I can say is thank goodness for WyzAnt!! This is my "other" part time job and at times it is the only thing keeping me afloat in this economy! Believe it or not, the WORST thing I did was to get my Master's degree - I've overqualified myself out of a full time job! Nobody wants to hire qualified people with higher amounts of education when they can pay someone with less education at a lower rate - and with no benefits. Sadly, this is the first time I have ever experienced a job market where those who have done MORE are worth so much LESS. But WyzAnt knows better and thankfully they have made it easy for me to find clients and work at a per hour rate that reflect my skill and educational background. Thanks for creating a job opportunity where achievement is still valued!
