    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Chicago, Illinois

    The health insurance was great. Stipend for lunches and beer on Fridays.Time off and vacation were a little rocky. Management would visually show their disapproval in you taking time for yourself or your family.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Tutor in Remote, Oregon

    I am leaving this review as a former tutor for Wyzant. I cannot speak as a client, as I have never purchased services from them, but I CAN speak as a contractor. I had a Wyzant profile for over a year and in that time, got 2 scam inquiries and only 1 legitimate student. The company explained that they have no limit to how many people can work on Wyzant and so I just needed to make my profile more visible- sure. understandable.... But what was NOT understandable was their payment policy. I taught one lesson through wyzant- charging $40 per 1 hour lesson. This is well below what most tutors in my area charge for the subjects I was teaching as well as my credentials. I was aware that Wyzant took a percentage of course, but when I signed up, it was very unclear as to how much that was. When I got my payment for this lesson, I received.... 11 dollars! Thinking this MUST be a mistake, I checked the payment policy again, and after several read-throughs, I realized that Wyzant makes it their policy to do this for every teacher until they have taught 100 lessons, after which their retained percentage goes up a measly 5%. I would have had to teach TWICE that to get 5% more, and so on... The other thing that concerns me... 100 lessons? It took me a year to get ONE lesson! And that was after being very active on the site, with a full profile and a Bachelor's degree in education with several specialty endorsements! I am very concerned by this policy, and I am submitting this review so that others may be aware of the business that they are supporting.

    Other than the flexibility of setting your own hours and a work from home platform option, there are no benefits at all for contact employees, not even self-paid access to group rates for things like health or life insurance.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Trainer/Teacher in Houston, Texas

    There are no benefits, unless you think about the bennie's re: helping folks to understand what they need to understand, whether that's an SAT, ASVAB, 5 paragraph essay, ESL, "how to" work a computer, etc. Being able to teach so many different things to do many people IS very rewarding.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Independent Tutor in Orange, California

    You're an independent contractor, so no benefits except you keep more of your own pay or get a referral fee for any new tutees.
