    Pros

    Setting your own rate
    Good support from the Wyzant folks
    Website is constantly being improved
    Lots of clients (depends on your location)
    Electronic pay

    Cons

    Wyzant takes a pretty large cut of the tutor's pay
    It can be really hard to get started as a new tutor

    Advice to Management

    Consider taking less of the tutor's pay percentage. This may drive down the cost of tutoring and attract more clients. Or, it just might make your newer tutors happier.

    It takes too much commission.

    They have plenty of clients in the pipeline and do all the work of recruiting, collecting fees, and putting them in touch with you. It's a win-win all the way!

    None I can think of!

    Pros

    Excellent for finding new students to tutor.

    Cons

    High commissions, start at 40%, never less than 20%

    Advice to Management

    Commissions are a bit high, maybe offer different incentives and or lower commissions, especially to new tutors.

    Pros

    Setting you own hours, picking your students, great customer support. Also they make it easier to market yourself.

    Cons

    It could take months to find your first student. The pay scale could be more starting off.

  9. I was allowed to be very independent. Pay was pretty good, since you get to set your own rates.

    I worked at WyzAnt

    Pros

    The pay was very good, as long as you make it higher up on the number of hours you have logged.

    Cons

    The training was very limited. Basically there are just a few very simple exams for each subject you want to tutor.

    Advice to Management

    More training would be appreciated. I had an overall good experience working here though.

  10. Postive overall, nice to have a company help you deal with marketing and procuring clients.

    Pros

    Set your own rates and schedules.

    Cons

    Difficulty winning clients. Have to contact each potential client and samll percentage pick you or the service.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly more hands-on in helping tutors secure clients. Difficult to get into the 20 hour plus mark.

    Pros

    I've loved working for Wyzant over the past few years. It definitely increases the the likelihood to finding students to tutor. Since they get to rate tutors, most people feel more comfortable once you get the ball rolling and get a few reviews. This is especially helpful when parents reach out looking for tutors for their children.
    I love the fact that I can set my own hours and am no forced to have any consistency in my availability except to the long term students. As a student, this was an amazing way to make money and fit perfectly with my schedule.

    Cons

    The percent of commission Wyzant takes off is quite high, especially when you first start. It decreases as you accumulate more hours, which is nice.

    Advice to Management

    None
