When you do work one-on-one with clients, it can be rewarding since it allows you to fully focus on helping the client with their tutoring needs. Working from home is nice. Additionally, all tutoring is chat-based, so you don't need a headset or a webcam, which provides a certain amount of freedom.
It is OFTEN the case that tutors are required to work with multiple clients on multiple subjects AT THE SAME TIME. This is unfair not only to the tutor, but to the clients as well. How do you explain to a client that it is taking you 10 minutes to review a paragraph of their writing because you are also helping two other students with their precalculus problems and their works cited pages? You don't, that's how. Instead, they just wonder why you are so slow and incompetent. Additionally, the pay is rather low when you consider that the position is an independent contractor position (for online tutors). After paying the self-employment tax (which is double what an employee would pay), you are basically making minimum wage (if that). It is suitable for those in dire need of money. Not at all suitable for someone looking to supplement their income.13

Sometimes there is work (you'll be able to get 3-5 projects per day when students are in finals)
The pay is atrocious. They pay around $3 per project and expect tutors to provide students with in-depth comments and feedback. They take advantage of employees who've earned their higher education degrees by not even paying them a decent minimum wage. You will have to fight for projects as if your life depended on it only to be paid $3-6 per document. You're lucky if you get 2 projects a day.5
