      Great Company! I recommend it!

      Pros

      Flexible hours, work from home, opportunity to help students learn, great support system with management. Don't let the negative comments of past tutors discourage you. The method used by tutor.com is one in which the student is taught the rules, so they can apply those rules on their own. It's a "teach a man to fish" method, and it has worked wonders for millennia. Mentors do a great job explaining this method and encouraging tutors to use it. They are responsive within 2 days, and they give you the tools necessary to succeed.

      Cons

      Some students are tough to work with.

      Pros

      Making my own schedule and working from home are the reasons why I'm working here.

      Cons

      Their system has some flaws and sometimes sessions feel rushed. They also tell you a pay rate but start you on $10/hr until you prove you're going to work well.

      Okay for a side job

      Pros

      Work from home. Flexible schedule. Ability to cancel up to 24 hrs per month and miss up to 19.99% of of scheduled hours per month without consequence.

      Cons

      Ever changing rules. Sometimes unkind students leave unjustified poor reviews and that makes bonuses almost impossible. Gets repetitive after a while. Low pay compared to every where else. No compete clause means you aren’t supposed to have similar work while working here even though the pay is low and sometimes difficult to get hours. Advancement is at the mercy of the mentor. A bad mentor makes this job almost unbearable.

      Pros

      time off is usually satisfactory, also work at home opportunity

      Cons

      your schedule changes every week, there are not many hours available except early mornings like 2-6 am, academic coaches are ridiculously long-winded and nit pickers, they hire and fire indiscriminately...I was not fired...got tired of the BS for what was basically a $12/hr job...tutoring platform is very glitchy too
