I continue to be very interested in utilizing an online tutoring format with camera, mic, etc. Because this is now provided by WyzAnt, this is somewhat of a moot point: I am very impressed by the WyzAnt Online format, and am looking forward to tutoring as often as possible with this unique tutoring interface, a true marvel of the age in which we live! More power to all that WyzAnt staff is investing in this special delivery vehicle, online tutoring - !.
All the Best to WyzAnt staff in providing this!
David / "Mr. Mac."
The WyzAnt Staff invited me to share my moderately successful tutoring schedule, after arriving at 50 hours: I will be happy to share a few ideas that I have found helpful, noting however, that I still need to put into action many of WyzAnt's great ideas to promote my "shingle"!
What I have found to be helpful and practical are as follows:
1. Check the "Tutoring Jobs" menu frequently.
2. Certify, of course, in as many subjects as you may be interested in, especially fields of interest from college courses, teaching, etc.
[This may go without saying, but more opportunities are there with multiple certifications, and I mean more than 10: if you have multiple degrees or venues of studies in college, don't let those subject areas lie fallow, but activate and renew your interest in them via WyzAnt certification, and then be ready for tutoring therein!]
3. Take time on initial inquires from interested parents, to remind them that they must complete...
Because WyzAnt has invested a lot in making it easy for tutoring clients to make payments, I find that it guarantees payment for tutoring time in a seamless manner, whereas there is always a glitch of some kind in "collections" otherwise. I prefer the WyzAnt website because it is obvious that WyzAnt staff is committed to making the WyzAnt website very dynamic, with its many helpful menus. So, to the WyzAnt staff, thank you for making my job as tutor in a various academic disciplines a pleasure, and I know that my tutoring clients, especially the paying parents, feel the same.
Several times I have had to leave a closing report prior to completion, only to return and start over: being able to save a draft would be very helpful. [That would apply to Wyzant e-mails as well, thanks.]
PS Also, if I may, I think a "booking" calendar would be very helpful, i.e. similar to an Outlook Planner, unless it is already there, and I haven't found it!
That would actually be equally, if not more helpful and strategic, at a glance, to see an AM or PM tutoring session availability.
Thank you again.
