I am thinking about offering tutoring services through Tutorsteach.com. Has anyone here offered tutoring services through here before? If so, I would be interested in your experiences with it.
For those who have not but are curious about it, this website is not an online tutoring center per se but instead provides a way for self-employed tutors to advertise their services via the Internet. Thus, there are no formal requirements or job training required or any other formal application process. The tutors who register get their own advertising webpage and pay a fee for Tutorsteach.com to keep advertising for them. Tutors get the first two weeks free and do not have to pay until they get their first student. I will have to check into how the fees are paid and when they are due because that information is not given, as far as I can tell. Tutorsteach.com does provide an online platform for online tutoring, which is good because I need one. The only ones I have access to at the moment belong to the schools I teach for.
Tutors can set their own schedules and how much they charge for their students.
A number of tutoring websites I have checked out last night are not clear on their pay rates or minimum commitments. Many also mention training before starting but often do not give details on how long the training is. One site (A1 tutoring) appears to be infected with malware because, while viewing it for information, I suddenly got a huge warning message that malware has attacked my computer. I do appear to have gotten rid of it with my anti-virus software because of its alert to getting rid of it and because of no problems since last night with my computer.
I would be curious as to what a typical time is for tutors who register to get their first inquiries from students and parents and what a typical number of these inquiries is. Of course, I'm sure that varies from tutor to tutor, but I would not want to use this site only to get only a handful of them in the next few months or none at all.
