How do I tutor students online?
The tools and software you use to tutor students online is up to you and the student. Many tutors use Skype, FaceTime, ShowMe.com, Google Hangout or Join.me. We do not lock you into any particular platform or software. We leave this up to you.
How do I get paid for lessons?
We do not get involved with payment between you and the students/parents. It is important that you work out payment terms and the payment method directly with the student or parent before starting a tutoring session. Many tutors use PayPal especially tutors who teach online. Local tutors oftentimes prefer check. We do not lock you into our payment system and do not take a percent of what you earn. This allows you to use to whatever payment system or method you prefer and charge whatever fee you and the student feel is fair.
Am I as a tutor required to purchase a background check?
You will not be able to contact students until you complete and pass a background check. Parents have a higher level of trust with tutors who have passed a background check and it is important for us to only connect students with trustworthy and qualified tutors. You can however setup a tutor profile and receive tutoring request alerts and also participate in our question & answers section without a background check. You will not be able to contact students/parents who request a tutor though until a background check is completed. We make it really easy to purchase a background check directly through our system and most checks come back within 24 hours.
