PrepNow Tutoring is a company that hires tutors to work part-time from home tutoring students across several different subjects as well as SAT and ACT test prep. The online tutoring jobs here are all for K-12 students. The company was created in 2007 by the founders of StudyPoint, another tutoring company based out of Boston that focuses on private, in-home tutoring.
This job appears to be open to people in the United States only.
Who is qualified to become a PrepNow tutor?
The qualifications on the website state that you need at least two years of teaching or tutoring experience as well as a composite 28 on the ACT or a 650 on the SAT Math and SAT Verbal/CR. You also need a minimum of a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university.
How much does PrepNow pay?
I found an older thread on Work Place Like Home (dating from last year) that listed $15 an hour as the pay rate. There are also apparently opportunities for raises and training is also paid. I can't confirm how accurate this information is because it came from a job listing for PrepNow that's a year old, plus PrepNow does not have any information about the rate of pay on their website.
What is the schedule like?
It is pretty flexible. Your hours are part-time and you need to be available at least 8 to 10 hours per week. You also must be able to do weeknights and weekends. During the application, you get to tell them what hours you would usually be available.
Tutoring for PrepNow
PrepNow will pair you with students long-term, so this is different than many other online tutoring opportunities because you'll get to know your students over time. If you are familiar with online tutoring, you know that many companies don't pair you up with specific students — you just log in and tutor students randomly.
As mentioned above, the tutoring is K-12 and covers all sorts of different subjects including test prep for the SAT and ACT. It does appear that they try to match you to your academic strengths. On the application, you let them know how confident you are to tutor in different subjects.
Tutoring sessions last from one and a half to two hours.
