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.
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.
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!
I have been working with WyzAnt for over a year now and it's been a very good experience! My profile is always available online so it's easy for the students to find me. I have had many students this past year and I have been very pleased with WyzAnt. The team is always available to answer my questions but at the same time I manage my account as I want. I really recommend WyzAnt for all new or experienced tutors!
As a tutor here at WyzAnt. I’ve only started and I have been very impressed with both the personal service I’ve gotten from WyzAnt and the number of student inquiries I received early on. I think everything they’ve done with the company is very impressive and I look forward to continue working with them more in the future, especially this summer when I plan on having more availability to tutor students.
A joy to use.
I stumbled on WyzAnt as part of a job hunt. Since I joined the site as a tutor, the response has been quick and admirable. The system is easy to use and explain and they have taken the time to make things in depth and easy to use and set up for students and tutors. I commend them on their execution and vision.
I have had a wonderful experience meeting such delightful students at different levels. Even when they needed only to pass a test I was able to turn them around and let them see the beauty of the language. Very interesting and wonderful students. It has been a great experience.
This website has been long overdue. It allows parents and students to finally be able to have access to professional tutoring for their children easily and conveniently. I've been tutoring for over 12 years. I only wish this website had been around when I started.
