  • Pay your tutors more, and make sure your tutors get enough students to make enough money.

What I like about the company

TutorMe pays above min wage. It is work from home. It pays 18 an hour.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of advertising, lack of traffic, and the ability to attract paying customers. I think there should be more than half an hour free trial.

Company Culture

Company sends out monthly newsletters that contain tips.

Support from management

The tutor mentor has been very helpful with suggestions but senior management does not appear to be flexible. I've lost out on ratings bonuses both because of an abusive student and bugs in the system but they have showed zero flexibility on these issues. I am a little upset about Management's attitude about abusive student. It does not seem like they have my back on this.

Freedom to work independently

Complete flexibility on work hours and location. You have to schedule pretty quickly when the scheduling opens.

Career Development

This isn't really going to get you a well paying job.It will help you reinforce basic concepts. It's better on your resume than working say at Walmart.

Overall compensation for your work

It will put put food on the table and maybe pay for your rent if it is very low.

Office / Work Environment

I am a Computer Science tutor in C++, Java and Python.

The vast majority of students are very appreciative. My tutor Mentor has been very supportive in helping me learn tutor.com regulations (of which there are numerous).
You need to type an awful lot as a programming tutor. Th tools we are provided to do the job, have gotten significantly better in the last few months.

Some of the students think you are a paid "program writing service". They log in a few hours before the assignment is due and they want you to write the entire program. Others, want to learn and allocate enough time to learn themselves.

Environmental Friendliness

No need to clog up the highways commuting -:). You can be anywhere in the country and still working. I've worked in Washington State, New Jersey and Arizona, at JFK Airport, SFO, Starbucks and various other Wi Fi locations.

Work-Life Balance

Complete flexibility on work hours and location.

Workplace Safety

You are working on your own . It's pretty safe if your home or Starbucks is safe.

Challenging Work

I would break the work into 3 categories.
1. 80% Simple and Repetitious: You will get 10 students asking about the same simple problem.

2. 10%: To complicated to handle with student waiting: These questions would require you to read up on a new field but you can't do that and keep student entertained every 30 seconds. Students will downgrade you when you can't do their assignment

3. 10%Sweet spot: Just enough difficulty so you can learn something new and keep the student entertained.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would suggest to tutor.com to pay their tutors more money equal to the amount of work that is going into every call.

What I like about the company

What I like about tutor.com is that all you have to do is log into their classroom and students are there with objective for writing paper

What I dislike about the company

Tutor.com record every call and will immediately -within hours contact you if you broke any rules or disconnected from rude students, which are many. Tutor.com pays 10.00 an hour and when you move up, which takes a year to tutor level 1 only, your pay goes up 1.00 more dollar per hour. Also, tutor.com has a running clock and students are only given up to 30 minutes, but many can go over that time but it is not specified who exactly are those students. In addition, students can ask tutors as many questions as they like-even if it is practically all their test questions, tutors must answer them. Even after all the hard work, a student can score you badly at the end of the session, which is counted against you.
