In theory, this would be a great site to work for. Good pay, relaxed atmosphere. They don't kill you with ten thousand rules. As long as you don't help students to cheat, you're good. If you're a good tutor who wants to help people, no problem, right?

Well, here's the downside, and it's such a huge one, I can't give the company more than two stars. You have to sit there and wait and wait and wait and literally stare at your screen when you sign in. Why, you ask? If you don't, you might miss one of the few opportunities you have that day to get work. Whomever grabs the gig first wins. I'll tell you, I have been trying to grab sessions for weeks now, and it's never me, regardless of how long I sit and stare at the screen or how fast I click on those damn buttons.

I can see how this benefits the company, but how are you going to keep any of your tutors when they have to spend 8 hours a day making a lousy ten bucks?

You're better off working for a company where you teach cute little children in China English, and that company charges your account back and does not guarantee you any work at all. I mean, if a tornado flattens your house and you cannot log into your session, they will charge you for missing the session. Yet, because they pay two dollars more per hour and you don't have to sit and stare at the screen for hoping of getting a few crumbs thrown your way, Tutorme.com really puts themselves at the bottom of the barrel in terms of attractiveness for tutors. Avoid this one like the plague. You're better off going to another company and earning less per hour, but it all evens out. At least you'll get paid to sit there and wait for people to tutor rather than sucking wind all day hoping to get just a few people to tutor. No guaranteed income here. No hope of earning anything decent after spending ten thousand hours in front of the computer waiting, waiting, waiting, and earning a few bucks.

Tutorme.com, if you fix this one thing, you'll be a great company to work for. Right now, you suck.

If you want to work for this company, you have to be aware of the fact that the mentors have all of the power in the company. The mentor manager is the laziest worker I have ever witnesses, and that's saying a lot, and the manager encourages laziness from the mentors.

Their system is really terrible. The mentors have all of the power in the company, yet they are its most useless aspect. The mentoring system isn't a real mentor system at all. The mentors give "advice" to you every month, but most of it is not useful because they don't know you from a hole in the wall, and they do nothing, absolutely nothing, to acquaint themselves with the tutor's skill sets.

On top of that, the mentors are really bullies who love to use their power against you for kicks. My mentor picked out one "mistake," which is really debatable because the advice I gave the student was still sound advice, and wrote me up as not having proficiency in the subject. One more notice, and they would have not allowed me to teach in that subject.

I AM EXPERIENCED IN HELPING STUDENTS AND I AM MORE THAN PROFICIENT IN THE SUBJECTS IT EACH, SO THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THEIR SYSTEM THAT THEIR TUTORS CANNOT SUCCEED IN THEIR TERRIBLE SYSTEM.

Also, I was working there for a year. They congratulate people who have been working there for a year or over. I worked there for a year, and they left my name out of the last notice!!!! It's really an unfair place to work where your hard work is never acknowledged, and favoritism is the name of their game.

I had a fairly big order LAST YEAR NOVEMBER, and quality assurance department CLAIMS the customer complained about the order. They have been holding my pay for four months now, claiming that they are waiting to hear back from the customer. At this piont, I don't think I'm ever going to get paid, and they stole money that I needed for expenses. I almost got kicked out of my apartment because of them! I couldn't buy my family any Christmas gifts either. Do yourself a favor. Stay away from these scam artists.

this is a spam site with no real value. They don't have tutors, they don't have employees even!...
