  • How does tutoring work and how does a student find me among all the tutors who have signed up with Eduwizards?
    • At Eduwizards tutors independently manage their own tutoring business. They decide what hours to tutor, which subjects to tutor, and what price to charge for each subject. Students search for tutors by selecting their Class Level, then the general Subject Area, and finally the Specific Subject. Approved tutors who have signed up for that Specific Subject will appear in the search along with information about them including student reviews and tutor's hourly charges. The tutors with the best reviews will appear first. A student can select a tutor and Book (Schedule) a session for a future time. In case of Online Tutoring student can also take an Instant (On Demand) tutoring session with a tutor who is currently online. After each session the student has the option of reviewing a tutor by giving a review score of 1 to 5 stars as well as text comments.

  • What happens after a student Books (Schedules) a tutoring appointment session with a tutor?
    • When students Book a session they state the class, subject and exact topic within the subject that they would like help with. They also select whether the request is for a paid session or for a free half an hour trial(if tutor offers free trials), and select the length of the requested session for home or online tutoring. An email/SMS is sent to the tutor stating that a request for a session has been made. The tutor must then login to his/her account and choose "My Requests" from the menu to accept the request. A tutor can review a request for a tutoring session and can accept or decline the request for a session (in case tutor declines the session the student is not entitled to give a review since no appointment was made). A tutor is always expected to accept unless there are exceptional circumstances. Once a session is accepted by a tutor a confirmation email/SMS is sent to the student. If it is a home tutoring session, the tutor should make sure that the session starts on time. In case of online tutoring the tutor must login to his tutor account no later than the session start time to take the session.

  • What do I need to succeed as a tutor at Eduwizards?
    • To begin with you must have a thorough knowledge of your subject. That alone is not enough. You must be able to generate great reviews from students and for this you must have the qualities of a good teacher. For online sessions; you must have a fast and reliable internet connection and must have thoroughly practiced with and understood the tutoring software. You must never be late or miss a session. Students can cancel sessions, but tutors cannot. If for any reason a session does not go well you can inform the student that you will not charge for the session and use "Dismiss Charge" in "My billings" in your tutor account. Students review a tutor after each session and a bad review score or negative comments will be permanently archived in your tutoring record. A mediocre tutor will not prosper at Eduwizards, since the system is set up to pick out and reward the best.

  • As a new tutor how do I distinguish myself and make a start?
