Tutor.com is always hiring tutors to WAH. They are a legitimate company-we use them at our library!
I hope this can help someone!

This looks like a great opportunity for me. I am going to look into it. I have been considering doing private tutoring in my home, but this looks like it might have more advantages. How is the pay?

Hi~
just wondering how much experience/education you really need to work for this company. I'm a college student in good standing but haven't gotten a degree in anything yet. Should I still apply?

tutor.com

I found a listing for these folks. It looks like you can apply as long as you are currently going to a 4 year college. I looked the site over and they are mostly looking for math and chemistry type tutors right now (in other words nothing I'm very strong in). If that's your thing though I'd say it looks pretty good. Here's the listing I found for them...

I'll offer a little advice on this one, since I applied and ran into trouble. When you decide to do the application make sure you have one uninterruptable hour PER SUBJECT (not "math" but "elementary math" or "middleschool math" or "algebra for high school" you get the picture) since they give you test problems and have you write a script for a mock tutor session for each subject. If you get a question wrong, you don't get the job, no redos alowed, so you really don't want to do it with your two year old nursing on your lap, etc. If you want to apply for just one subject, then expand on that later, that is allowed, I asked, but ended up trying too many subjects anyway.

So, what is the pay like?

I earn >$18/hr at my office job. If I stay home next Spring and do this, I'll still have to pay for daycare/babysitting while I do it. Would it be worth it?

How's the money?

I earn >$18 at my office job now. If I stay home next year and do this, I'll still have to pay for daycare/babysitting while I work. Would it be worth it?

Hi,
Could you tell me how they pay, do they pay per hour or per session? Do you need uninterrupted time during the session? Is it like chat room environment where the tutor and the student discuss and the teaching session?
THank you.
