Review: 

Wize, formally Wizedemy, is an online education platform that generally charges for college prep materials. The site added tutoring to its lineup in September of 2019. That makes the tutoring platform new and in need of tutors for dozens of subjects. The site’s CEO Cyrus Moradian says Wize earns nothing on tutor pay and, instead, supports the site with its other products.

For tutors, that’s a great deal. Tutors are able to set their own rates and keep every dollar. The site has no set payment schedule. Tutors are paid on demand via PayPal or direct deposit. Although the site suggests that tutors keep their rates in the $20 to $25 per hour range to ensure they get plenty of work, some tutors charge considerably more. The rate is up to you.  

The only concern we have with this tutoring platform is with the site’s youth. This may mean it has fewer tutoring clients than other seasoned sites. And, of course, it may eventually start charging tutors to list their services. For now, however, there’s little to dislike.
