Aww, that sucks. =[ Sometimes it sucks to have your account deactivated because of a misunderstanding. Might I recommend, however, that you post this in a review so that others can see? That would be greatly appreciated. Thank you :D

Yes, potential clients of mine said Wyzant hounded them over and over to give billing info. Wyzant apparently thinks it's our job to police them and be sure they do that. All we can do as tutors is echo that we cannot meet them until they do that, however some are hesitant. Not my problem anymore. Wyzant sucks.

Tutors are not employees.. it is an online marketplace connecting students and tutors.. Wyzant controls the website and has reserves the right to remove tutor profiles from the directory for no reason.. when Wyzant removes profiles it creates more space internet space for new tutors and students.. why they currently have free student questions, answers and blogs from 2011, on their webpage as of today, does not make any sense.. Wyzant does not have a background check requirement for students posting jobs or free questions.. tutors can elect to have a background check or decline one.. there is a security risk for both parties.. it is not the best platform for tutors or students ..

Wyzant is a great business opportunity. However, what you put in is what you'll get out. Unfortunately, myaccount was deactivated because I was told I did not communicate with the potential students. Also those who wanted tutoring never applied billing information. How could I reach out if the students did not provide that information?

More questions about WyzAnt

I am looking for apart time job, I am a french and science teacher, I have like more than 20 years of experience in education of high school level. Why are there so many bad reviews from tutors? I am being stalked on here - what can I do? Do you work for Wyzant? I see a lot of bad reviews. I need a tutor about three times for my statistics course. Can I get a total flat of how much I would get charged? The last few lines of my login question should read: I re-entered my e-mail and clicked on "FORGOT PASSWORD". I received an error message telling me I could not reset my password! I found an error in my question about a login problem. How can I correct it? I have been registered with WyzAnt for several weeks. Today I signed on to Wyzant with my USERCODE and password. While I was pokeing around, I was asked to sign in with my E-MAIL and password. My e-mail seemed to be what was expected; but I wasn't allowed to sign in using the only password I know for this account. I was switched to another form where I re-entered my e-mail and ckicked on "forgot e-mail address". I received an error message telling me I couldn't change my password. What now? Would you provide me an example of what they are looking for in their Free Response section. I'm trying to get started as a Tutor and provided four paragraphs. I received an email this morning saying my free response was insufficient and needed more than one paragraph. I'm not sure what they really want. Thanks. do u offer help in writing computer science papers?
