I love it!
I really enjoy tutoring! It allows me to share my expertise with others, make a difference, and feel good about what I do everyday. The company makes it easy for me to focus on my students, which is where the focus should be!! Thanks, WyzAnt for your support. You'll be needing to add another ribbon, since I am coming up on another milestone.
My experience so far has been very positive. I am most impressed with the organized website, the rapid response from correspondence to the WyzAnt team at their corporate offices, and the easy access to my account information when changes need to be made. I have also experienced smooth communication with my prospective and new clients. I think the way they structure the correspondence is fantastic, offering their website as a way to communicate with a potential client.
I submitted my application to become a tutor on Saturday 9/25/2010. My account was activated by 9/28/2010 Tuesday afternoon which was extremely fast. I certified for my subjects by taking the tests which were very fair. I started checking for tutoring jobs and found some immediately. Some other tutoring companies that I have used don't get as many leads as WyzAnt. This proves to me that they are doing a great job with marketing and their tutors are happy. Another great benefit is that they will pay you by direct deposit, even every day if you choose that option! Most tutoring companies do not offer direct deposit. The website is very easy to understand and I have been getting emails from WyzAnt about new opportunities. I highly recommend WyzAnt for anyone that is looking for tutoring opportunities.
Very pleased with quick responses!
I am very pleased with the quick responses and courtesy shown by your customer support team. Not that I need their support often, but when I have needed it you are reliable and quick to respond. Good Work ALL!
Not only am I one of your new tutors, but I was a system analyst and worked on system development with AT&T for many years. This experience makes me a very unforgiving website user. This site however, has me amazed most of the time at how dynamic and useful and user-friendly it is. While there are certainly items that could be added or changed to make it even better, I am also impressed that you have a forum for the users to let you know what kinds of programming would be helpful.
Great Resource with all the extras
Excellent idea and presentation. Clear and concise material, easy navigation, website and excellent customer service and support. Very functional website to bring together the student and the tutor. An excellent source of resources for the student and teacher. Thank You for all your efforts WyzAnt. Hey, what a brilliant and wonderful idea!
Rewarding experience working with the students
When I first began with Wyzant, I wasn't sure what to expect. Initially, it seemed I kept sending out emails and no one had their billing information on file. My first student was a 6 year old who needed help with her reading comprehension. I used note cards to help her study, and on one of them she drew a picture of me with students. She said "This is you teaching your art class". Well, she must have known something I didn't, because now I am teaching drawing and painting with reading. Every time I come home from a lesson, I say to myself "I absolutely love this". The best thing about working for WyzAnt, is there is immediate support. I have never been left 'hanging' when trying to resolve something. The hardest part, is assuring people to put their billing information on file. Some people will try to make a deal with you, so you have to assure them the site is legitimate and you've had no problems. I find once I meet them face to face, everything just comes together. So thank you WyzAnt, through you, I really feel like I am making a difference!
So far, my experience with WyzAnt has been quite pleasant and very beneficial, during the few short months I have been a WyzAnt tutor. The supply of prospects has been quite good. (I don't know how they promote the website, but so far it seems to be working quite effectively -- especially when compared to others on which I am listed.) Also, the percentage rate of return is quite reasonable (especially after the first 50 hours ;^), and generally better than most other similar services. The company's attitude has been quite good, so far, and the problems usually get fixed reasonably well and promptly. I also appreciate their sincere desire for feedback -- plus the fact that (unlike some others) they don't seem to be offended by complaints (or even nit-picking about exam questions). bam ("Professor BAM") P.S. Over the past few decades, I have dealt with at least ten different tutoring agencies (in addition to having worked for two major test-prep firms, and having my own private clients). I would consider WyzAnt to be one of the top two, if not the best of them all.
Although I have had only one student since I joined Wyzant; I am quite pleased with the number of possibilities of new students. My student is very excited about my teaching techniques because he has seen a vast improvement in understanding Chemistry concepts. I am looking forward to sharing with other teachers about Wyzant. I truly believe Wyzant is the wave of the future for matching teachers with students.
