    Pros

    While Wyzant does the "heavy lifting" regarding finding students and making payments, it is understandable that they want to monitor communications between students and tutors. I have taught online for colleges and they do the same. This understandably protects Wyzant as well as the tutors and students.

    Cons

    Initially, Wyzant does take a big chunk out of the payment (con), however, this business model is clear upfront and there are no surprises (pro)..

    Pros

    You will waste your time for creating your account and taking tests.

    Cons

    It seems offering tutoring job opportunities. However, it is not. Even though, you scored 100 % on that subjects, they are discriminating people.

    Pros

    - Working with students is rewarding. - I am always learning about education and teaching material in custom ways. - Seeing students succeed is a wonderful feeling, and working toward that goal helps me grow.

    Cons

    - Marketing is challenging, so I rely mostly on word-of-mouth and offer discounts for new customers and those who refer others. - Overhead costs are challenging, but in the end it is worth the expenses to give students a session that has high-quality materials.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to improve my exposure within the community, so that more families and students know about my services.

    Pros

    Beautiful website that works very well to connect students with tutors, and a fast, effective method for accessing a tutor's ability to teach a subject

    Cons

    Every time a student makes a payment, the company takes 40%, leaving the tutor with 60%. Since tutors set their own rates, this gives them an incentive to charge up to twice as much, which is bad for the student.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take 40%.

    Pros

    It's easy to connect with students. Wyzant handles billing and I have never had a problem with receiving payment. You set your own hourly rate.

    Cons

    The large commission they take. I have worked 400 hr and still will never make more that 80% of my hourly rate.
