    What We Expect From Our Tutors

    The most important thing is always the full satisfaction of our customers. For Peer2utor, this means our students must learn, be engaged while they learn, and learn the specific skills they'll need to succeed on their state exams.

    We provide you and our students with full lists of the exam standards for every test. Our students can choose the skills from the list they need to practice, and you can choose the skills you'd like to teach.

    While we don't demand prior experience, we do require all of our tutors to be experts at the subjects they teach and passionate about forwarding our students' educational success. This means providing our students not only with answers, but with the knowledge and techniques that will lead them to succeed on their own in the future.

    Competitive Pay Rates

    We value our students, and we value the tutors that draw and keep them here.

    With Peer2utor, you can work out of the comfort of your own home, on your own schedule.

    We offer a variety of options for our tutors: you can choose to respond to individual sessions requests, teach group lessons, host your own regular online class, or any combination of the three.

    There are no minimum hourly commitments to work with Peer2utor—you can schedule as many or as few sessions as you'd like. We only require you to be reliable by being available for your scheduled sessions and always communicating any cancellations in advance. With this much flexibility, Peer2utor is perfect for balancing with your other commitments, whether work, school or family.

    Steady Clientele

    Peer2utor gives you access to thousands of potential customers. Our students need tutoring for a wide variety of grades and subjects—from 3rd grade to 12th, from 3D Art to AP Macroeconomics—guaranteeing that any tutor can be matched with valuable clients through our system.

    Bidding Account

    As a Bidding Account tutor, you are free to fix and change your rate to any amount you'd like. It can be $10/hr or $40/hr—whatever you think will work best for you. You will be able to browse our board of student-requested tutoring sessions, and you will also receive a notification every time a student requests a tutoring session within your area of expertise and price range.
