    Pros

    Flexible schedule with reasonable compensation.

    Cons

    I was often pushed notifications for students seeking instruction in languages I do not speak. A small annoyance.

    Pros

    Make your own schedule. Agree on the rate before committing to anything. Meet new people with similar interests as you (both tutors and students) to increase your network! Management is GREAT, very supportive, and ready to help 24/7.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but the pay can be as low as $15/hr not counting the prep work needed for certain (one-on-one) sessions. But there is PLENTY of high-paying opportunities if that is your concern!

    If you can tutor on your own, do that instead.

    Pros

    -You have a lot of flexibility in setting your hours and deciding what to teach. -The in-lesson IT services are fantastic. -The employees at their call center are helpful and polite. -You can be picked up for the job even if you have very little experience (say because you're still a student),

    Cons

    -The pay is very low—honestly it's insultingly low considering how much they charge the students and their families. You are also not paid for preparation time. -If some kid is upset that you politely declined to help them cheat on their homework, they can one-star you and tank your tutor rating. They can also leave an untruthful and hurtful comment about you visible for any students or parents on Varsity Tutors to see—those comments are apparently completely unmoderated. Overall, I can't say I got the impression that Varsity Tutors values the expertise or experience of their tutors. I would not recommend working for them unless you have no other options.
