WyzAnt is a service that connects students with the best private tutors at affordable prices.
WyzAnt works with over 70,000 tutors in a wide variety of subjects, and finding an expert teacher is as easy as using the site’s search bar. All that’s required is for a user to type in a subject and a zip code. A search for “Math” in my New York zip code returned almost 2,000 results. The results are organized based on proximity to your location, and can be reorganized by a variety of filters including age, gender and hourly rate. There are so many quality tutors on WyzAnt that finding help in whatever subject you desire is truly as simple as conducting a search. The site is also not limited to finding tutors for young children in lower education. Many of the tutors have experience teaching for standardized tests such as the SAT, GRE or GMAT.
Each tutor on WyzAnt has a comprehensive profile explaining the individual’s teaching background and experience with various subjects. The tutor’s specific hourly fee is clearly laid-out on the profile, as well as his or her travel policy. A great component of the tutor profiles is the “student feedback” section, which allows students to post reviews of an individual tutor. Students give ratings from 1 star to 5 stars, as well as a description of their experience with the tutor. The majority of the tutors hosted on the site have been background-checked by WyzAnt, and the tutor profile also reflect this distinction. Contacting a potential through the site is incredibly easy, as there is a detailed email form built in to every tutor’s profile. For those that want to become a tutor, the application process is free. Once you’re accepted and begin working for WyzAnt, the site takes only a 20% commission. WyzAnt is truly one of the best, most all-encompassing online destination for finding and hiring quality tutors.
