Common questions

Some questions asked by the members of our community.


What's the approval criteria to be a tutor?

At TutorLyft, we vet through every single tutor application and that can take up to a week sometimes. We have an approval rate of ~10%, yes - we ensure quality and passionate tutors in the community. Our criteria for approval are:

• Relevant experience in the industry ( > 3+ years)
• Has past experience in a role involving tutoring/teaching
• Passionate about educating others and making a meaningful difference in the lives of students
• Excel in clear and effective communication
• Are committed to offering customized, student-focused learning experiences

How many new students can I expect after partnering with TutorLyft?

TutorLyft provides prospective learners and parents with the opportunity to choose the right tutor for their needs. Since we do not refer learners (they choose you), results vary from tutor to tutor. That said, on average we aim to produce 3 to 5 new student bookings per month, per tutor.

What subjects can I teach?

Currently, we're concentrating on delivering math tutoring services for students ranging from kindergarten to university level. As we expand, we aim to incorporate a diverse array of subjects. If you specialize in teaching areas other than math, we still encourage you to apply.

What computer equipment do I need to teach on TutorLyft?

You will need a laptop or a desktop computer, a stable internet connection, a webcam, and a microphone for conducting lessons. TutorLyft will provide a Zoom link for every session. We also strongly recommend being in a quiet space that’s free of potential distractions for you or students.

What channels does TutorLyft use to market to potential learners or their parents?

TutorLyft is always exploring new ways to market our service and partner tutors. We invest heavily in search engine marketing and optimization, social media marketing, content marketing, and email marketing. Additionally, our goal will be to actively engage with academic institutions to broaden your exposure.

I live in a rural or remote area. Can I still partner with you?

Absolutely! So long as you have a desktop or laptop with a strong internet connection we can film your intro video and you can work with students.

Pricing, booking, and payments

I’m confused by the pricing. Can you explain?

For all clients you acquire via TutorLyft, we act as the payment platform. Clients pay us, and we pay you. We charge 20% of the session rate. You will be paid in bulk, on a bi-monthly basis.

Do clients have to keep booking with me via TutorLyft, or can I book them in directly?

If a client initially finds you via TutorLyft, we require you to keep working with them (i.e. collecting session fees) via TutorLyft.

I don’t want to accept direct bookings, can I still partner with you?

No. To maintain an ideal client experience, it’s necessary for our partners to offer at least one direct booking option for clients (unless your workload is full and you have a waitlist).

Do clients pay me or TutorLyft?

Clients pay TutorLyft directly at the time of booking their session. We then pay you twice a month via direct deposit.

How frequently do I get paid?

TutorLyft pays bi-monthly via direct deposit. We use stripe as our payments platform.

Can I cancel anytime?

Yes. There is no contract. We don’t believe in locking you in, and want to be continually proving our value to you and your business.

Creating the intro video

I'm anxious about being on video. How intimidating is the experience?

We totally get that being on camera can be nerve-wracking! That's why we take our time during filming to help you relax and show your best self. Plus, more footage means more options for your final video. We've got you covered!

Do I have to pay for my introductory video?

No, the video is complimentary and part of the onboarding process. We're committed to creating a video you'll love. If you feel tweaks are needed, we're all ears for discretionary edits. Rest assured, nothing goes live without your thumbs-up!

Can I use my own video for my TutorLyft listing?

No. Since we have our own standard process for video production, we require all partners to produce a video alongside our team.

I live in a rural or remote area. Can I still partner with you?

Absolutely! So long as you have a desktop or laptop with a strong internet connection we can film your intro video and you can work with students.
