If you’re a math whiz, with either a teaching certificate or a graduate degree, Skooli may be a good site to sign up as a tutor. Specializing only in math — algebra, calculus, geometry and trigonometry — the site pays tutors by the minute, with a 15-minute minimum, to teach online. 

While Skooli’s starting pay of $25 per hour sounds good, it’s comparable to what other sites pay tutors in higher math. And the site’s requirements are exacting. Indeed, the only other tutoring site that demands as much in terms of teaching experience and credentials is Chelsea International Education, and you could potentially earn far more there. 

We found few complaints about Skooli. But we didn’t see a lot of praise either. The site has been around for years, but has apparently morphed from a general tutoring site to one that focuses solely on mathematics. 

The one concern we have from the site’s terms is that it reserves the right to modify the amount it pays tutors at any time. And while the site says it will take “reasonable efforts” to notify tutors, you’re only entitled to what Skooli pays you, regardless of what you were promised.
