Tutors are paid as independent contractors and pay is based on the subject tutored and the number of hours tutored. Our most active Chemistry tutors earn anywhere from $800 to $1600 a month. We also offer bonuses, performance incentives and opportunity for growth.
Tutor.com gives educated work at home agents the opportunity to use their knowledge, help others and make a considerably decent income. Tutor.com specializes in Tutoring for families, military, schools, libraries and other programs. They are one of the top and most respected companies in the online tutoring world and have tutored thousands of individuals in all ranges of subjects.
While majority of Tutor.com agents work part time hours, the pay is very reasonable. Tutor.com does not have a set pay rate, in fact their FAQ sections says this about their pay:
Additionally, I have read other reviews of tutor.com agents who claim after spending some time with Tutor.com and moving up, they were offered a set pay rate. One particular agent, who tutors in Chemistry, is paid $13/hour. However, if a tutor is stuck waiting for the student (no show or late), the agent is paid $5.50/hour for that time. This seems fair, as most companies who hire independent contractors simply let you, as an agent, take the loss.
As of this posting date, Tutor.com is currently seeking new agents for the 2010/2011 year. Priority will go to applicants who can pass exams in more than one field and who are looking for at least 5 hours of work a week. While Tutor.com is available 24/7, they are seeking agents to work between Sunday and Thursday, ranging between the hours of 4-11 PM Eastern.
Because I do not have personal experience with any online tutoring companies, it may be helpful to read through the reviews of previous and current workers of Tutor.com by visiting sites like JobVent. Keep in mind, there will always be more people ready to complain than ready to praise. Take each review as it is and remember some are disgruntled and annoyed. However, it is best to know the negative takes as well.
