I have been tutoring for 20 yrs. I was skeptical about WyzAnt being an online service. However, I have been delighted with all aspects of my interactions with WyzAnt. From the client's who I have worked with to the ease of getting payments directly deposited into my account. It's a pleasure being associated with this organization.
Really Great Arrangement
I have been tutoring on WyzAnt for nearly a year and am now well over 100 hours into the experience. The website is simple and effective and indeed so much so that I have never actually had occasion to speak to anyone at WyzAnt! Everything works online pretty much perfectly. WyzAnt certainly will give you a stream of interested students (not all of whom ultimately will sign on with you for reasons you may never find out) but you certainly don't have to waste time seeking them out. And, as most tutors here note, WyzAnt deals promptly and accurately with all the payments so that you don't even have to discuss money with the students, much less chase them for payment. The service does feel a little expensive, particularly at the start until you get your percentage raised a bit, but really you get a lot of service for the money. Overall, I am very pleased to be a WyzAnt tutor and would certainly recommend WyzAnt to anyone wanting to get into the tutoring business or who is looking for a tutor.
Great Opportunities to render Service
I have had the opportunity to utilize my skills as a means providing a needed service, with the overall intent of giving back to others, because knowledge gained is something that one will take with himself or herself, and no one can take it away. WyzAnt has provided me with an excellent platform, with modern day technology, to do this and I encourage others to utilize WyzAnt's features with the ultimate intent providing a real service by enhancing our society.
Setting my own rates
I love being able to set my own rates. I have one student who doesn't want to pay as much as I charge, but because of the mileage, I can't. What I was able to do, though, was offer her a discount if she could add students to our group. One of my other students couldn't afford a tutor but really needed one to get a job and I was able to help her. I really enjoy being a WyzAnt tutor!
Best site for tutoring!
The "hard work" in tutoring for most people is finding students. With WyzAnt, THEY do all the hard work of finding students so that I can focus on what I do best - teaching! Every day, I receive e-mails and texts of new students in my area that are looking for a tutor in my subject areas. My schedule is filling up faster than I ever imagined! =)
WyzAnt has been a great referral tool for my tutoring business. It is easy to find students and WyzAnt sends me an email and a text message every time that a potential student requests a tutor. Their pay is always accurate and on time and the technical team quickly responds to questions. I highly recommend tutoring through WyzAnt.
Ponce de Leon and the Fountain of Youth
It is an invigorating experience to have a wide variety of student needs. It refreshes my mathematical knowledge and, therefore it is similar to a Fountain of Youth. Tutoring helps me to keep current on some of the new trends. I have learned how to better structure lessons and to ask for preliminary information. The tutees have all been motivated students. They have run the gamut from high school students, to students preparing for entrance exams, to college students in their first or last class. Creativity abounds when trying to think of creative responses to tutee listings. I have chuckled at some of my writings. Sometimes it seems as if you are at a market place, selling your wares. But, it is time consuming, looking for new students and waiting for responses. The "Team" has promptly responded to inquiries. It is refreshing. All questions have been answered magnificently and thoroughly, with one exception. Now the listing of "Potential Students" fails to be as useful, as previously.
Easy to work with.
Since joining Wyzant in February I have found the service to be easy to use in term of finding new students, submitting lessons and receiving payments. The experience has been very positive for me and I highly recommend it.
As a tutor, wyzant is great. It offers a quality website that consolidates the search for multiple subjects. So to my clients, it appears that I'm much bigger than I am. This gives me great visibility, and gives the customer more confidence since this is a 'company' instead of am individual. The billing is very convenient, and really shields both the customer and the tutor from billing concerns.
I have been working with WyzAnt for about one year now. It has really help me out and so far I have nothing to complain about. I love WyzAnt because it allows to me to do something that I love without worrying about the billing. Most of all, I couldn't ask for better student. Two years ago if you would have asked me if I see myself teaching, I would have answer NO. Now, I can definitely see myself in a class. Through WyzAnt I find amazing students and most of them will become life-long friends! Thanks, WyzAnt!
