Overall Great Website!
I have been using the WyzAnt service for some time now and I believe it is overall a great website. It has definitely helped me setup a tutoring business that I have intended to do for some time and has connected me with many local students. Recently, after having a few ratings and finding a few initial students, I am receiving many more inquiries for tutoring.
Finding students is easy.
By requiring all teachers to certify themselves in the subjects with a short test and write a short personal statement, Wyzant provides a reliable interface for tutors to pitch & sell their expertise to students who are assured that they will get the best value for their money. In sum, Wyzant makes it easy for even first-time tutors to translate their talents & skills into cash while choosing their own hours/workload. Anyone can use it - highly recommended!
Wonderful to work with
Wyzant is doing great!! If you have issues with customer payments, or other customer related issues the team of reps are always on hand to help you. I also like the feature that allows potential students to contact you directly, and not through a search pool.
One of the best tutoring service for tutors!
I've been tutoring for WyzAnt since April 2011 and have been connected with many hard-working, honest, and high-quality students. Compared with other tutoring companies I've worked for, WyzAnt pays tutors the largest amount, taking a relatively small commission for advertising and marketing. I've tried to advertise on my own, but have never been successful in promoting my services. WyzAnt wages a continuous advertising campaign, conducts background checks, maintains my up-to-date public profile, and puts potential customers at ease when hiring a tutor. At the same time, I feel protected when meeting new clients. I don't understand why some tutors have complained about WyzAnt. Perhaps they need to start off charging a lower rate and travel further to build their customer base. I'm grateful for WyzAnt and am happy to commend their services.
A Fantastic Way for Professionals to Earn Extra Money
I began tutoring through WyzAnt in March, 2011, and I have a completely full tutoring schedule. I know of no other way I could have promoted myself in so many towns and communities. WyzAnt is easy to work with, promotes its tutors on attractive profile pages, and resolves every issue promptly and easily. I vastly prefer working with WyzAnt than dealing with students on their own; in fact, I have found that students who pay cash are less reliable. Everyone is vetted, and I have never been cheated. I think this is a great service and it has become a significant portion of my income.
A very positive experience!!
I have been tutoring through WyzAnt for over a year. It has been an excellent way for me to use my skill of teaching Spanish. I have met some very interesting students and parents. Everyone is very appreciative of the tutoring I provide and I enjoy the work very much. Students are very happy with the flexible hours I provide and parents are thrilled when their children's grade reflect the hard work everyone has done. It is an excellent way for me to earn extra money, especially since the job is so rewarding to me.
WyzAnt has been a very rewarding experience for me. I've helped students prepare for anything from an entrance examination to weekly homework to standardized test. The wide range of topics (at least in mathematics) that bring students and those who care about them to WyzAnt is also refreshing. It offers the ability for tutors to conquer different challenges from session to session. I would say that the only thing that I would change is the geographical restrictions, but I understand the reasoning behind them. It provides a more personal feeling to meet face-to-face with a tutor for which driving more than 40 miles can be cumbersome. However, there are certainly some tutoring tasks (at least in mathematics) that can more easily be addressed via email or over the phone. In these cases, for instance, fact checking a mathematical proof or reviewing a short concept. With repeat clients I tend to throw these short conversations in for free, though this can add up. I imagine this could be a new source of revenue for WyzAnt to offer online tutoring help (though conceivably using a different pricing system). Overall, however, my experience has been enriching for me and my students.
I find WyzAnt to be a brilliant way for tutors to be matched up with potential clients and for clients to find qualified tutors. As a tutor, this eliminates the tedious process of looking for a steady source of clients. WyzAnt does all the work for you. All you have to do is create a profile and clients will contact you. It's a win-win situation for all sides.
