    College Essay-Level Tutor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tutor.com (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    You take a test in the subject matter you want to tutor in, and if you get 84% or higher, then you go to the next step. They give you a mock-trial session with voice and text and videos to help you understand the classroom. The mock-trial is them imitating a session you may have while working, which can be a little weird because you may have someone older pretending they're 13.

    Then if you pass that, you're pretty much employed once you send your paperwork in.

    Interview Questions

    • The most challenging part was being asked to explain a concept without giving away the answer during the mock session, though that is a huge part of being a tutor so I am glad that is part of the interview process.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tutor.com (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The competency tests that you have to complete aren't hard. You have to pass those before you schedule for a mock tutoring session with a mentor. The mock tutoring session was a joke. I was rushed through it and as I was writing an answer to my FIRST question, the interviewer wanted to connect to a voice call. I was totally caught off guard and didn't even have time to gather my thoughts. She ended the phone call and the session within 2 minutes after. They asked me to reschedule, so I did and the interviewer never connected. I contacted tutor support regarding the issue after waiting 30 minutes to connect (it wasn't a connection issue). After 4 days I still haven't heard anything from tutor support.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tutor.com (Richmond, VA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    After creating a profile they have online tests for the all the subjects offered. When you pass one you're able to schedule a mock interview. My subject is accounting, which you have to have a degree to tutor, and the degree plus the test are your proof of knowledge, so the mock interview essentially just makes sure you're capable in the aspects of tutoring outside of content knowledge. The interview takes place in the online classroom that you tutor students with. The interviewer had no accounting knowledge but had some accounting questions for me, pretending to be a student. I could have made my answers up as long as it was convincing, because at this point they just want to make sure you can break it down and help a student who is completely clueless. The interview was 43.6 minutes long (It saves the transcript, which is how I know), and tested my tutoring ability using the chat function, then the voice function. At the end, my interviewer told me that I'll know in a couple days if I got the job.
