Technically, Wyzant is a broad tutoring platform. But when it comes to teaching acting, tutoring and teaching are really one in the same. What makes Wyzant attractive for teaching acting? The site allows teachers and tutors to set their own rates and availability. And, the site pulls in millions of visitors each month, which boosts your chance of finding students. The site also charges reasonable (25%) commissions for doing the marketing and collection for you. You can read our full review of Wyzant here.

Another alternative: TakeLessons. The site connects music, art, dance, acting and language teachers with students wanting to learn these skills. Registration for teachers is free, but TakeLessons will take a big bite of your pay when you book a new student. Read our full TakeLessons review here.
