When I was looking for someone to help my daughter out in Algebra, it was easy to find one through TutorZ. She said that her tutor really sat her down, and actually explained things to her where she could learn them. Her grade improved from F to C, so it's been a great experience.

Initially I thought TutorZ is just local classified, so I just put an ad there. And then I got the students. It was really helpful and respectful. The website is good and doesn't have glitches. It's easy to set up and very organized. They had never charged me twice even though I clicked two times by accident. The ranking on the Google is going great day by day. Although a mobile app would be a good add-on in the future. When I had an email conversation with a TutorZ personnel, it was a good experience. But TutorZ should do a facial check on the new accounts of tutors, whether these are fake accounts or just as a social reputation of the website. Other than that, the company is doing a great job.

TutorZ could be a scam. I felt that the students requesting to be tutored and some of the tutor names they put down don't exist. When I get solicited, I respond, I pay, and there's a phone number. It's like a fake profile, phone number, and the email. Then I never hear from what I paid the people requesting to be tutored. I tried to call but nobody answers their phone number. It's just always voicemail. Then I talked to Greg through email. He just responded and that nobody can answer. You can't get through to anyone. I teach computer classes. I just want to have an extra income and it’s not hard being a tutor there as long as you got the qualifications. I only had two tutors over the last two years being there but I've been paying for these two legit tutors who went through. TutorZ is not very good.

When I searched for a tutor through TutorZ, I was given three people who specialized in what I was looking for. I contacted them and then they contacted me. Their website got the job done, so I would recommend them.

This is my first week with Tutorz. But it seems the company is a very nice company, much better than Tutor Nation and Contact. I sent my information electronically to their rep. I'm a Penn State Master Engineer and he immediately assigned me. I told him by email and over the phone that I am not an online degree person. I have been doing face-to-face tutorials almost 30 years and I had been doing a very good job and nobody in United States ever just got angry from my tutoring services all my life. But some of the budgeting has been cut off with at least three community colleges in my area and unfortunately that hit us in tutoring and teaching as a faculty. It is becoming very expensive. I'm trying keep my hope high and regardless if I'm becoming a faculty by summer of this year or fall of this year I'm planning to be working an independent tutor for TutorZ.

I saw on Google that TutorZ was one of the companies that helped connect tutors with a client. It was quite easy and was the best possible scenario to becoming a tutor through the website. I was able to sign up for the tutor service and I did it all online like connecting through emails and accepting or declining a job. It's been very manageable through the online format. However, I haven't had as many jobs completed through TutorZ as I would have liked. But there was a slight increase in the experience through the overall number of people that I booked through them. It's a great experience over the past couple of years that I have been with TutorZ and I would like to see the company continue to expand its clientele of people who are requesting tutoring and offering more services. That way, it could offer more opportunities. As it is, though, I see it as working well overall.

I was just looking around googling some names and TutorZ popped up and responded and everything worked out fine. It's easy finding a tutor especially if you know what you are looking for. Every tutor I spoke there with were fine, very well versed and professional. The learning experience was excellent as well. Overall, we had a good experience with them.

I was trying to find students online when I first heard about TutorZ. I like that it's easier for people to find me using their database. They filter, so I don't have to deal with finding people who aren't a good fit. TutorZ has been the one that I've had the most luck with finding the most long-term students with. It's also nice that they have so many options. They have specific things that people need, which goes along with parents who go that far - who deserve to have someone who knows what they're doing. I'm working with two people right now that found me on TutorZ and that's been the best long-term family situation. It was a good fit. My only problem was I have had a hard time searching. I haven't figured out how to do that. Also, TutorZ might want to add executive functioning into their database since I do it with all of my students with learning disabilities and it helps them a lot. Their parents love it, and it seems that they're looking for that.

I was interested in becoming a tutor to find who needs help. It was pretty straightforward and easy becoming a tutor through TutorZ. I try to have many students through them and I’ve had three students from them for molecular or quantitative evaluation. But TutorZ does not have enough students. They should advertise more.

Original review: Dec. 11, 2016

I'm preparing for my Step 1 exam, USMLE so I needed discussions with someone who is very much knowledgeable because Step 1 seems to be very important for the next successive exams. And tutors are the ones who can let me know where I'm going wrong, which one is important, and where to focus. So, I thought TutorZ would help and benefit me. TutorZ.com has been very helpful in figuring out a tutor for me. They provided me with the tutor's information and if they were not responding, there was a feedback from TutorZ.com saying that, "If you did not hear from this, there is another tutor," to keep me going, which I really appreciate.

The tutors were friendly and knowledgeable. The only thing is tutors also have their own things going on and the meetings are not an everyday thing. But my learning experience has been good so far. I have improved myself and it really helped me to be more focused, improve my concept and stay motivated. TutorZ.com has given me that support which I needed at the right time. It's really helpful for students who are looking for support and who want to improve. It's also very accessible and welcoming at the same time. So, we as students, feel comfortable to interact with them and try to figure out which tutor is good. Or we could always fall back on them to get some support. I really recommend it to anyone if they are searching for some tutoring.
