I need a tutor/mentor for my son. He is in 10th grade. We need someone to work with him to:
1- In general to help him stay structured, and get his work done on regular basis, and in a few months be able to carry on independently.
2- Specifically needs some help in Math.
3- Needs someone to keep coaching him in the right direction, and help him make this change.
Personality I think needs to be someone who commands respect and comes across wise and sincere person. Some one who can instill some discipline. Initially need some one who can spend 3 to 4 hours a day with my son, and then we can start tapering off in 3 to 4 months. My son has to catch up a lot of work in May, so we need someone right away, and available for 4 to 5 days a week. Because we need someone for lot of hours, we need someone at reasonable rates to keep it affordable for us.
The best part about tutoring for me is working with students one-on-one and knowing that I played a part in their academic success. The most frustrating part of tutoring — finding new students, dealing with marketing, billing clients, etc. Wyzant solves those problems and lets me focus on what I do best — teaching!
Over the last seven years we’ve built the largest and most trusted tutoring marketplace on the web. With a new student lead posted every minute, Wyzant eliminates the need to be listed on multiple sites.
On average, our fee is 25%, compared to the 60-80% that traditional tutoring companies and franchises take.
You don’t have to worry about marketing, collecting payment, or unqualified leads on Wyzant. We take care of all the details so you can focus on tutoring!
