WyzAnt.com is the home of WyzAnt, a digital marketplace where tutors of all ages and subjects can connect with new students to earn a supplemental or full time income based on their schedule and client base.
WyzAnt says their digital marketplace benefits tutors because they handle all payment issues, secure communications with new clients, administrative duties, and are one of the most popular websites used by clients to find tutors in the US.
According to the website, 90% of their active tutors say that this marketplace is the best source they have found for reaching out to new customers, and new tutors can register at their site completely for free.
How It Works
New tutors can sign up at WyzAnt for free and create a detailed profile intended to appeal to new clients. These profiles include pictures, biographical information, credentials, tutoring history, and – eventually – client feedback.
Tutors can set their own hourly rate, usually between $30 and $60 per hour, and WyzAnt takes between 20% and 40% of your rate based on the number of hours you have tutored through their marketplace.
The website says this is less than the 60-80% of commission usually taken by other professional tutoring agencies. In addition, WyzAnt says they are more successful than traditional agencies at creating long term tutoring relationships because they don’t arrange tutors – they let clients choose the tutors they believe are the best fit for them.
What to Know
To better facilitate your ability to earn money from their site, WyzAnt offers both in person and online tutoring so their students and tutors can have the most flexibility. Also, though WyzAnt does sometimes provide discounts to the students who purchase tutoring packages, all discounts are taken from WyzAnt commissions and not from your hourly rate.
Though the website says that successful tutors can make over $50,000 a year working with students, they do admit that building this kind of client base is both time consuming and difficult, though not impossible.
In general they recommend that you use this opportunity to make supplemental monthly income, creating a tutoring schedule that works with other jobs or money making opportunities you are using.
