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!
Very well run and responsive.
I have been using Wyzant for more than 2 years and am very satisfied. The students have been wonderful, motivated and respectful. I have never had any trouble with payment, thanks to Wyzant's well-organized and managed system. Wyzant's percentage is worth paying, because I don't have to spend my time billing and chasing payments. Every time I have called Wyzant about an issue, the representative has been helpful and responsive. Also, e-mail responses are prompt and helpful.
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.
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 tutoring with WyzAnt for the past seven months and I can say that, all things considered, the experience has been good. Through them I have been able to secure a few tutoring jobs, and through their simple certification process I can teach new subjects for which I feel qualified. Their website is simple to use and I appreciate their method of payment.
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.
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.
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.
Easy in every aspect.
I have totally enjoyed my experiences with tutoring with Wyzant. Wyzant has been easy in every aspect of tutoring. From finding students to being paid they have made it so simple.
