Transcript of Becoming a Tutor on the Varsity Tutors Platform - 2016

Connecting with Students
Obtained Through the Platform
The Story of Varsity Tutors
Varsity Tutors is a live learning platform that connects students with personalized instruction to accelerate
academic achievement

The company was founded in 2007 by Chuck Cohn while he was a student at Washington University in St. Louis.

Varsity Tutors offers students the opportunity to connect with
live online

instruction through its platform.

What it Means to be an Independent Contractor
Because the platform is a marketplace, Varsity Tutors cannot guarantee you customers, hours to work, or revenue. As a result, tutors who use the platform tend to instruct those students obtained through the platform for what would be the equivalent of part-time work. Opportunities to connect with students through the platform depend on time of year, location, and subject demand, among other things.
You are free to express interest in or decline any customer opportunity sent to you.
Students and tutors can take learning on the go with one of Varsity Tutors’ 40+
free mobile apps

Varsity Tutors offers free online Learning Tools across more than
200 subjects

This includes free digital test prep books and 200,000+
expertly written

practice problems, flashcards, and diagnostic tests.
Next Steps
Our expert directors and platform's algorithm will use the information you provide to
you with students.
