Working with Tutor.com
Tutors are responsible for engaging students in the subject matter and guiding students to understand what they are learning. Many students work with Tutor.com to seek help with homework and subjects they don’t understand.
Tutor.com accepts applicants that are:
- Teachers and retired teachers

- Math professionals/experts
- Science professionals/experts

You also need to live in the U.S. or Canada, have a valid Social Security or Social Insurance number, and be available at least five hours per week.
You’ll need to go through an application process that includes a competency exam before getting started. The process takes anywhere from one to three weeks to pass and get hired.
The first step is the application, then a subject exam, followed by a mock session, and finally a background check. Before getting started, be sure to review their Basic Concepts List to see a full list of subject matters they tutor to see if you will qualify.
Once you pass and are hired you’ll be paid a set hourly rate that varies based on the subject. The pay is on a regular schedule and you are paid via direct-deposit. More information about pay range and structure is available once you complete the application and exam.
According to Glassdoor pay ranges from $9 to $15 per hour with the average being around $11/hr. (Of course this number can vary based upon experience, the subject, etc.)
