Nine Reasons to Tutor on eduFire
1. Make money from the comfort of your own home
The business of being a tutor is about to change. No longer will you need to spend hours in your car traveling to your students. With eduFire you can teach your students from wherever you’d like…your home, your office, a coffee shop in some exotic country you’ve always wanted to visit…how cool is that?
2. Keep almost all of what your student is charged
Working for a tutoring company can seem like a racket at times. They charge the student a lot and they pay you a little. With eduFire you get to keep almost everything that your student pays (we collect a small service fee). We feel that if you’re the person putting in the hard work you should reap most of the benefits.
3. Set your own rates
With eduFire the price that your students pay is entirely up to you. Do you have more clients than you can handle? It’s easy to raise your rates and make more money while working fewer hours. Or perhaps you’re a new tutor looking to build a base of students? Lower your rates for a while to attract more customers. Pricing is always and 100% up to you.
4. Super easy to get started
The only thing you need to get going with eduFire is a computer and a working webcam. You can register and create a profile in about 30 seconds. There is no application process or time-consuming interviews to take part in. You can literally have a new student within minutes of reading this. Give it a shot!
5. A professional-looking profile for you
The eduFire service allows you to create your own professional home on the Internet. Post testimonials from students, add a video of you teaching and share your background and credentials with the world. Having an online presence have never been easier for you as a tutor.
6. Set your own hours
Tired of only teaching during times when you’d rather be having fun or with your family? At eduFire you decide when and how much you’d like to teach. The best part is that because eduFire students are from all around the globe there will be demand for your teaching services at almost any hour of the day.
7. Scheduling and payment are a snap
Two of the biggest headaches of tutoring are scheduling your students’ sessions and collecting money. At eduFire we’ve created tools that make these things a breeze. We want you to be able to focus on doing what you love (teaching!) by helping you with the administrative parts of being a tutor.
8. Find more students
If you’re looking for more students you’ve come to the right place. In the past tutors were pretty much limited to working with students within a short distance from where they live. With eduFire you can now have students from all around the world. Not only is this incredibly fun and rewarding, but it's easier than ever for you to making a living or great supplemental income as a tutor.
9. The chance to change the world by helping people learn
At the end of the day you’re not teaching because of the money. We’re most passionate about the possibility of education and learning to change lives. Our goal at eduFire is to give tutors the tools they need to be able to easily teach students and empower them to go on and do great things in their lives. We’re excited that you’re about to join us in that goal!
