-Be at least a College Sophomore from US or Canadian accredited university
-Commit to at least five hours a week.
Basically if you meet the criteria described above, you can apply at tutor.com right away. Sign up, take the tests in the subject field that you are interested in tutoring, allow tutor.com to do a background check on you, and wait.
Important note: The subject tests are very thorough, they take quality seriously because they are primarily oriented to the students (who pay for the service) and want the tutors to be able to deliver.
When you pass the tests, you are required to take one final one-on-one “mock” interview, where you can showcase your ability to tutor in your subject of expertise.
If you pass this interview and background check you are accepted and automatically put at tutor.com waiting list, where you wait while position opens for you to officially start tutoring at tutor.com
The period on the waiting list can be from few days to several months depending on your area of expertise.
The pay on tutor.com com is above average and its explained upon acceptance to each tutor individually in their contract. Naturally the novices receive the lowest pay, but tutor.com has great incentive program that can be monetized through good and hard work, especially with good ratings from students.
Some former tutors criticize the platform especially it’s supervisors for being too harsh with the schedule and always pressing to be positive with students, while they are very negative to tutors.
If you check Tutor.com prices you will see that they charge students from $34 to $40 per hour and they pay tutors from $9 to $15 per hour, which means that significant part of the revenue stays with the company.
On the other side tutors never have to worry about looking for students and finding work. There are also, real career advancement opportunities with their incentive program as they value quality. After all $9 to $15 per hour is not that bad deal for a side job you can perform from the comfort of your home.

While you can always place an ad in craigslist to offer tutoring services, there are also few alternatives to tutor.com such as TutorVista, InstaEDU or skillshare.com
