My son is in the second grade but his school decided to teach 3rd grade reading comprehension. The problem is there is no bridge program to get him up to speed. His problem is grasping the concept of how to draw out the answers from the reading. I think he can read it fine but actually being able to extract the answers to the questions I find he is lacking a problem solving skill. He has difficulties in finding the main idea, support sentences, another name for the topic, and so on.
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!
