They say the third time’s the charm, Studypool is an online micro-tutoring platform that connects students with highly qualified tutors from all around the globe. The platform offers a high variety of subjects for students to choose from and anyone interested in tutoring on this platform can easily create an account. As a tutor you simply need to submit a picture proof of yourself, a resume, fill in your profile, and complete a quick assessment to evaluate your skills and mastership on the subject(s) of your desired tutoring. Students could also sign in free-of-charge, and as soon as they create an account, they can post the question(s) on the subject(s) that they need help with, and the best part is that this microtutoring service is also available 24/7.

Wyzant is an online 1 to 1 tutoring platform offers to book a tutor for the questions that you have on a specific subject. Now, here’s where you’ll put your skills to the test: the more competitive your resume is, the more likely you´ll be adequately selected as a tutor to meet the student’s needs; secondly, their whiteboard platform creates a very interactive tutoring session with the student, but it’s very time-dependent: I’ll reiterate on how prepared you have to be to make sure your tutoring session must be correctly timed to it finish at an hour, as each hour is being charged and it will solely depend on the student to determine whether or not he or she is willing to continue (or pay for) a 2-3 hour tutoring session. So to wrap things up, if you think you are more than prepared to provide a very accurately timed tutoring session, then Wyzant is definitely your choice! It’s right there on their site policies that tutors can earn from $23 to $60 per session!

You can get hired as a tutor with at least a bachelor’s degree in a particular subject. Brainfuse offers tutoring on three segments: the first one is Live Help, this enables to connect and chat with a student, and if he or she doesn´t like a live session then the student can just submit the question and the tutor gets on board working with it; secondly there is Tutor Match, where a student schedules a session with a tutor and if your schedule matches the student´s availability well, there you go; and lastly, there is Writing Lab, whereas if your passion is correcting papers and leaving comments then you´re in the right spot!
