Tutor is a U.S.-based online tutoring company assisting students in K-12, college and adult learning environments with homework, writing assignments, SAT preparation, resumes and other tasks. Tutor contracts with individual families as well as with libraries, schools, colleges and a specially funded free service for qualified military families. The company hires home-based tutors for its live, one-on-one service. While Tutor considers applicants in all subject areas, demand for tutors in math, science, and research and writing is highest.
The Tutor application includes subject area tests that applicants must pass. Tutors must be enrolled in or already have completed an undergraduate degree. Tutoring positions are open to residents of the U.S. and Canada who are eligible to work. A home workspace with high-speed Internet and a Windows-based PC able to run Tutor software is necessary. Hours and scheduling are flexible, but applicants who are available at least five evening hours per week EST between Sunday and Thursday are preferred. Preference is also given to applicants with passing scores in more than one subject area test. As a tutor your workspace only requires a Windows-based PC with a high-speed Internet connection. All new tutors participate in training sessions provided by Tutor.
Tutor describes its tutoring positions as an extra-income opportunity. Tutors are paid as independent contractors. While the company does not provide hourly rates on its website, it claims that some of its most active tutors earn from $800 to $1600 per month. Bonuses and incentives are also offered.
