Online Tutoring For Elevate Learning

If you meet the qualifications and are looking for a work from home tutoring job you can do during the day, working for Elevate might be ideal. Founded in 2007, Elevate has a unique system where they match tutors to students to work together long-term in a virtual classroom because they feel that strong relationships build strong educational foundations. The company has won lots of awards and are currently the #1 math resource choice for schools nationwide.

The Job

This is primarily math tutoring although there are other subjects as well. You work during the day, part-time, from your home with students that have been pre-assigned to you. The students are K-12. All of the work is done online in a one-on-one environment.

The Pay

Elevate will pay you $12 an hour. Unfortunately, I cannot find information on how often they pay or what method of payment they use.

Are You Qualified?

You will need to have prior teaching and/or tutoring experience to get in here. The job listing also states that¬†Graduates and current university students (undergraduate, graduate, PhD students) may apply. And as stated above if you are not comfortable with math subjects, then this probably isn’t the job for you.

The Schedule

As far as flexibility is concerned, Elevate sounds really good. The hours you work are during the day so you can schedule yourself anytime between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Also, you are allowed to set your own schedule here. Just let them know when you are available to tutor through the week and they will work around you.

Tech Requirements

There is no big long list of extensive requirements. All you need to do the work as an online tutor for Elevate is a computer with a reliable internet connection and a quiet environment.

Feedback

This is another one of those companies where I can’t find much feedback. The job lead gets listed online but you don’t read too many reports from people who are actually doing the job or that know someone who is, although a search on LinkedIn does show several people who are currently tutors for this company. But from what I can tell there are a lot of good things about tutoring for Elevate if you would qualify for it. The hours are very flexible, the pay is OK, and I know that if I were interested in online tutoring, I would love the idea of dealing with only one student at a time rather than a big group. Plus this is an established company that has been around for five years now.

    Your site is certainly a great resource but, as I live in Canada in a fairly isolated region the choices appear pretty narrow. Do you know if Elevate hires Canadians? From what I can gather it appears doubtful and it would be nice to know before applying.

    I work for Elevate K12. You don’t need a phone and you do not need a cam on your computer. The pay is $12.00 an hour. Bad thing is you must stay for the entire session even if no students show up and only get paid $2.00 for the whole session. The lessons are pretty good and you have more than enough to keep students learning throughout the entire session. They now have other subjects other than just math. I teach reading and it is a 1 to 3 ratio. Most of the time only 1 or 2 students show up. It is difficult to juggle 3 students online and teach them the lessons effectively. It is very flexible. The training I received was not very good and you kind of learn as you go along.

    I currently have been working for Elevate Learning K12 for about six months now. The job is a great opportunity to work with underpriveliged or struggling students. However, the website states that you recieve quality training to prepare you for teaching the students this quality training was a twenty min overview of how to click and navigate the online whiteboard. You only have 15 mins before each session to prepare for your lesson. If sessions are back to back you have no time to prepare. You can recieve plenty of hours and summer sessions. However to sit there waiting on students to log in for two hours and no one shows up and you only recieve now, $3.00 is quite frustrating.There are lots of errors within the teaching materials which makes it confusing for the students. I also had to sign a contract that states I am to recieve payment of 12$/ per 51-60 mins for 1-3 students and 14$ for 4-6 students. I typically teach 1 1/2 to 2 hour sessions which for that time According to my contract should receive $16/ hour per 1-3 students and $18 for 4+. I have had several two hour sessions which I am suppose to receive $22/ per 1-3 students and $24 for 4+ And all I have been paid is 12$/ hr. I just think its wrong that you sign a contract that says you will be compensated according to information I have stated above and you get underpaid. Very wrong. Also they are not very professional in the interview process nor the examination you are required to pass( there were errors within the examination!). Everytime I contact someone through email about money or a statement of my hours (which they do not give you at all) I never recieve a reply. Even the head manager of the AMPs never replied to my email but two weeks later I receive an email on a different subject. If you are willing to deal with all the crap and as well as being paid nearly a week after the scheduled date of on or before the 15th of every month, then the job is ok. But this company needs some serious improvements. I am also looking into legal matters on the issue of being underpaid. Good luck
