For prospective employees

For customers, it is probably a good service. For prospective employees, I would go elsewhere.

First, they only pay out about 25% of what they take in from the customers. Other services pay out about 50% if not more.

Second, scheduling is ridiculous. If you weren't logged in on the second scheduling opens up on a weekly basis, as well as have a quick mouse trigger finger, you were left without any hours. Then, they would get on your case about not committing to any hours, when none of the hours you wanted to tutor would be open.

As far as the mentors for the tutors, I had several. One mentor would tell me I should do one thing differently. The next mentor would tell me to do the exact opposite.

One of their administrative leaders reprimanded me because "the student could take your post as being negative". Seriously? I'm being reprimanded for how the student takes what I post? The student could take anything a tutor says or does as being negative. How is that show a bad performance by the tutor? But, then, with that student, they tell me I did... (Read the full review)

Tutor.com's management and so-called "mentors" will evade your grievances regarding aberrant student behavior, and chastise the tutor for not be able to "meet the student's needs" even when it's blatantly apparent that the student is dicking around intentionally and getting a sophomoric enjoyment out of harassing and "trolling" the tutors.

I was terminated from Tutor.com for essentially no other reason than Tutor.com's management and "mentors" being incompetent and completely unresponsive to concerns and feedback provided by their tutors.

The only way I expect anyone could succeed with Tutor.com long-term is if one:
A. Has no life, no self-esteem or self-respect, and takes no pride in their work
B. Doesn't mind being abused by students who go out of their way to waste the tutor's time, and,
C. Doesn't mind when management ignores your concerns and then blames you for their inadequacies.

In other words, if you value your skills and expertise as a tutor, and... (Read the full review)
