    I worked at Tutor.com part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours, easy, can be done from home,

    Cons

    Tutors are held accountable for everything, extremely high expectation, extremely low pay, no respect for the tutor's knowledge and tutoring style, mentors will always get u fired! Dont work here if you value ur time and knowledge. They will make you feel like crap and pick on every stupid thing they can possibly pick on. They literally higher you to fire you before it's time for your promotion for unknown and unclear reasons.

    I have been working at Tutor.com part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None that I can see as of now.

    Cons

    I would get a "request" for a tutor but soon as I click on it, the system says that I have no request. Sometimes it would say the person has 5 "bids" in already, meaning that tutors are supposed to race to get the person requesting tutoring a quote and then they decide (or something like that). I still just don't think the "requests" for tutoring I've received are real. If they are real I'm not trying to be in a bidding war for tutoring sessions. Also, when I tried to delete my account it said that I should just turn off all of my notification tabs. That is obviously not the same as actually closing my account.
