WyzAnt

Marketplace for tutoring services matches students to tutors in their local area —

Overview

WyzAnt.com is an online marketplace that connects students to private tutors in their area. Their expertise cover a wide variety of subjects, ranging from math, science and literature, to graduate level courses, test preparation, language training, even sports and music lessons.

Students and parents not only find a listing of over 63,000 tutors, but, more importantly, can access reviews and conduct background checks in order to find the right tutor that fits their diverse and particular needs. Each tutor profile includes a detailed overview of the tutor’s qualifications, subject proficiency and teaching experience as well as access to student reviews, lesson ratings, third-party run background checks, blog posts, videos and more. Prospective students are encouraged to interview multiple tutors and read reviews in order to make the most informed decision. From there, WyzAnt allows parents and students to pay for lessons online, offering discounts for lesson package purchases and a no-questions asked, 100% satisfaction guarantee with every WyzAnt tutor.

Each private tutor sets his or her own hourly rate, which is included in WyzAnt’s tutor search results as well as on each tutor’s personal profile page. WyzAnt also offers discounts of up to 15% for lesson package purchases. The average tutor’s hourly rate ranges from $25-45 per hour, depending on the area of the country and the subject.
