Don't waste your time applying to WyzAnt as I just experienced their abusive clause and potentially discriminatory practices.
I applied online and exceeded all the conditions and expectations listed in their job offer. I also scored 100% on WyzAnt skills tests. Nevertheless, my application was denied. I can understand that, but I required some explanation from WyzAnt. I contacted the company by phone and email. A "ticket" and "case number" was opened and I expected a reply from a representative.
I copy/pasted here the reply I got, for your own appreciation:
"The decision to deactivate your WyzAnt tutor account was made in accordance with our terms and conditions, which are available for review on WyzAnt.com.
WyzAnt considers this decision to be final and a representative will not be made available to further discuss this matter.
The WyzAnt Profile Review Team"
I reviewed the terms and conditions WyzAnt refers to in what I consider being a bold and shameful reply, and it includes the following: "WyzAnt may provide notice to Users via email, regular mail, or posting notices or links to notices on the Site. WyzAnt reserves the right at any time to modify, suspend or terminate the services (or any part thereof), and/or use of or access to them, with or without notice. WyzAnt may also delete, or bar access to or use of, all related information and files. WyzAnt will not be liable to Users or any third-party for any modification, suspension, or termination of service, or loss of related information. WyzAnt may amend these Terms at any time by posting the amended terms on this Site." (art. 21 of WyzAnt Terms).
For your full understanding of the situation, let me also underline that I did not infringe any of WyzAnt terms, and I did not post any inappropriate content on my profile and application. Yet, it was denied.
Once again, I can totally accept a NO to a job application, I just ask for an explanation when I meet all criteria, when I usually get a YES from similar job offers, when my skills have been proven through 15+ years of experience and satisfied clients/students.
I took 5 minutes of my time to share with you how WyzAnt actually operates. I hope this helps you make your own judgement on this company and service.
Wyzant gave me my first paid tutoring job. I had one student in the beginning. That lasted for about a year or more. And then, I started to get a few requests here and there. Now, I can get quite a few students, depending on my other work schedules. Wyzant is great. With anything in life, you need patience and diligence.
I contacted a tutor Katya A. who was listed at $40 per hour and she responded even suggest a day and time for our session. Then I never heard from her again and I could not imagine why until I went to look for other tutors and saw her rate changed to $80 per hour and it was suddenly all clear. I would have paid her the $80 but this is no way to do business. I hope that this moves costs her.
I contacted Wyzant over 24 hours ago and have yet to hear from them.
NOT A TRUSTWORTHY SITE
I worked with a tutor who was wonderful and I worked with another who was not so wonderful. I only worked with the bad tutor for about 20 minutes online. Although I had explicitly stated what I needed (our correspondence is in writing), he accused me of not being upfront with him and being too low-level to help (he did not charge me, as far as I know). I called and spoke to a friendly representative who sent me a list of tutors and stated she would note the bad tutor to her supervisor. I am a "nontraditional" (aka old) student who has been out of school for a long time, so maybe I am a slower learner, but I have been working really hard to be successful (I've gotten A's on my tests). I felt insulted and humiliated by the bad tutor's comments/attitude. As I stated, the first tutor was really great (it's been a while, but I think he was from WyzAnt), so I don't think the bad tutor is representative of their tutors. Even though I had a bad experience, I would still recommend the site because there are kind people who are patient and understanding out there. Don't give up, even if you're old and slow!
The experience was great because of the tutor who worked on technical skills but also positive feed back and personal motivation and confidence. There was a plus in a personal connection and desire to perform seeing the tutor's accomplishments and positive attitude
I found a great local tutor via WizAnt for my son. I see some customers are hesitant to provide billing info before they can get tutor's phone number. I was ok with that, may be because I spent more money than the tutor from WizAnt was asking per hour, to just check out 2 other tutors, who were not a good match. If you are willing to pay for work, it should not matter: we provide billing info for all types of purchases all the time, not knowing if it will be a good buy. I was a teacher myself, and know that this work is not easy, and deserves to be paid for. Also, you are NOT charged till your tutor loggs in session date/ time/ description, and you rate it. I also hear that the commission WizAnt is getting from the tutors' rate is quite high, starting from 40% , and depending on collected tutoring hours goes down to 20%. It does sound high. But if Tutors do use this company for marketing, I think it suits them. They do have an easy to use website, which pops up in a top 5 companies, providing similar services. The tutor I was connected to by WizAnt is very professional lady, her commute to my place is very short, and the rate is affordable. Sessions are logged in by the tutor with the short description of content, and time. My tutor is very good about providing exact session timing, I am not worrying about overcharge. You can see all charges on-line. So far I did not have issues with customer support (had to call to make sure my new billing info is available, so payment is not overdue). With the growing competition, I hope, WizAnt will lower the % it takes out of the tutor's rate, otherwise as a customer I am satisfied with WizAnt services so far.
Ms Nadine is an experience tutor, she know a lot about math and life in general. Although she is great at Math, she is better at lower levels of math, like Algebra or something similar, for higher math i will not recommended her, although she can still help you wit the basic stuff.
My experience with this service was excellent! At first, I thought it might bea scam but it's legitimate. The tudor I worked with was very friendly and helpful. There are also many tutors who are ready and willing to help you with almost any subject. I hope more individuals learn about this site and what it serves to the public. Thank you Wyz Ant, you were a tremendous help!
Cliff Wheeler is my tutor and he is really GREAT! He is very patient and is great at explaining difficult things. He has multiple ways of making sure I understand the material that we are going through. He is very considerate and kind. I will continue to be tutored by Cliff. I will also not hesitate to share his name around to anyone who approaches me with needing some additional help. For WyzAnt, this is a very organized and professional online tutoring service. I like that I am able to meet face to face with a tutor.There is nothing sneaky about WyzAnt, they email every payment that will be processed, they give you reminders and confirmation for upcoming tutor sessions.I will refer WyzAnt to those who ask about tutoring services!
I have used two math tutors, AJa and Rachel B and I was satisfied with them both. They were flexible, knowledgeable, professional, on time and patient. My daughter is improving in math and she looks forward to her sessions with Rachel. I would highly recommend both tutors.
WyzAnt enabled me to interview (thru email and phone calls) several tutors in Tucson AZ, in my search for a tutor for my 24 year old niece who needed help in passing the GED. I narrowed my search down to 2 and after a face to face interview decided go with Rebecca. Rebecca has been such a great help! She has been able to connect with Sandy and has become an inspiration to Sandy. She is about ready to take the math portion this month. The GED will be a stepping stone for Sandy's life.
My experience with Wyzant has been quite successful and very helpful especially as a medical student. I found strong, passionate and knowledgeable tutors on this website to help me with my courses. Everyone is different and can find the right tutor that works for them.
10 Questions & Answers
Received an email from
WyzAnt that I am not a good fit for them. Believed it to be a case of being unable to complete my profile with the test. I log back in to rectify that yet cannot find any test-taking link.
Would love some information on navigating the site so I can get back on track.
