TutorMe is an online service that offers both virtual tutoring and online test preparation courses. Their vision is to enhance the way the world learns. "TutorMe gives anyone with expertise the ability to share their knowledge and makes it unbelievably easy."
TutorMe offers a variety of learning resources. With TutorMe, students can access video conferencing, audio and text chat, shared whiteboard space, and file sharing. The variety of options allows each student to find the tool that best fits his or her learning style.
TutorMe tutors are available to their students 24/7, 365. In less than three minutes, they can connect with an expert. Also, TutorMe allows their students to either choose their tutor or have TutorMe match them up with one. Most companies only offer one option.
TutorMe has one of the best varieties of subjects available in the tutoring industry. They cover basic courses such as English, science, math, and foreign languages, but they also offer subjects such as computer science, engineering, humanities, professions, and more. They offer a total of 299 subjects.
In order to become a tutor with TutorMe, applicants much have previous tutoring or teaching experience in addition to a mastery of the subjects tutored. Also, they need to be enrolled in or have graduated from an accredited university. Tutors can find a long list of frequently asked questions about applying that can answer all qualification questions on the TutorMe website. Several competitors do not have any formal processes in place to hire tutors, so TutorMe shows a great level of reliability by having a process in place.
They list their costs as $29.75/hour with their plan that includes four hours per month. Some competitors charge much lower hourly rates.
Though TutorMe offers a variety of online services and tools they do not provide any in-person tutoring sessions. Students seeking a face-to-face tutoring experience will have to seek other companies.

I work as a tutor on the TutorMe platform. I'm enjoying my time as a tutor so far. I get a steady flow of students every day, so I've been able to form relationships with some of them. The lesson space is really great, there's a whiteboard, a text editor, a code editor, and a file sharer, which is everything I need and more to teach programming, math, and physics. PROS: Lesson Space is very well developed, has many media to hold lessons Simple Interface, easy to find things Weekly payout via Paypal One button to switch between Tutor and Student mode (Unique!) Chats to connect with past and current students CONS: Low Pay ($18/hr) is lower than most other sites Uber style matching means tutors have to sit and wait on the site for tutors to come by Relatively low student to tutor ratio as of September 2017 Desktop Notifications push too slowly, by the time I click on the notification the lesson is usually gone No incentives for great teaching - No bonuses or even online achievements / badges No way to set up future or reoccurring appointments with students No features of top-performing tutors No testing / verification of tutor knowledge of subject areas
Great tutor platform with an easy system
It is good company and flexibility to work as a tutor.
Unfortunately I have to leave a terrible review. Let me just start off by saying that the tutors are awesome! They are really helpful and know how to relate to the student. That being said their customer service is terrible. I cancelled my membership and they still charged me. When I tried to contact them to talk to them about my account, the only way to contact them is through their chat. After I sent them a chat message it took them 3 days to even respond and then 1 week from there to tell me that they weren't going to help me out. I also asked them to provide me an email or phone number that I could contact. Their contact page gives out no phone number and the email that I sent was never returned. The tutors that I had been working with even tried to help me contact the customer service and they had no luck as well. I wish that their customer service was better and that I could use them for my future educational endeavors but alas they have left me with a bitter taste. I will NEVER recommend that anybody use this service.

Hi Ruby, we are terribly sorry your experience with TutorMe was less than perfect. I am not able to see any messages from "Ruby Straaten". Please email us at [email protected] so we can make this right.
Good place, the tutors are highly qualified and do their best to be relatable with students.
The provided service is awesome, sessions are delivered professionally with high quality features.
I have only recently become apart of the TutorMe team, but immediately I have understood that TutorMe is a unique and beneficial experience. TutorMe, for it's tutors, is extremely simple to use. The Lesson Space is incredibly useful and has many KEY features needed during a successful tutoring session. Though students on many tutoring sites merely search for answers, TutorMe students understand the value of conceptual learning and don't mind using time to assure that they thoroughly understand the concept at hand.
TutorMe has provided great additional income for me. The only drawback is the limited amount of students compared to the surplus of tutors. The customer support is 100% responsive and the students are great! Not only does this help the student increase their success while learning but also helps the student and tutor build rapor to better fit the student's needs.
I have been a tutor at this website for almost a year now. They do have the best lesson space out there which loads very quickly and is very easy to use. They have really nice management team as well who are open to suggestions and have a mindset of problem solving. One suggestion from my side would be to test and try the new feature offline thoroughly before making them live cos untested features may create problem while giving a live lesson to students. Keep up the good work and looking forward to change the way people learn. :)
discriminated against when i applied to tutor on their platform.I genuinely felt that i had better experience and qualifications that a lot of their current tutors.When i kindly asked for reasons for my application rejection ,i was totally ignored. Interestingly ,they still advertise to me to be a student on their platform ,despite the fact that i am doing my doctoral studies.
It's an awesome site for students who need help in studies. Tutors all over the world are ready to tutor students 24*7. From a tutor point of view it is good site as part time job. Best thing is the customer service of this site. They always try to help u every possible way.
Tutorme.com is an excellent platform for students who wish understand a subject, clear their doubts, or need some quick guidance with homework. Tutorme provides cutting edge tech to the users to enhance learning.I have been online Tutor for over 6 months now, and the Tutorme "whiteboard" is the best tool I have encountered so far for online teaching and learning, you can talk to your tutor via video and audio chat. You can setup your own lesson timings, learn at your own pace. Tutorme is the epitome of customer service and good teaching/learning environment. I recommend everyone reading this review to at least try this service for once, and then see it for yourself.
TutorMe is great! A tutor is literally at your finger tips when you need one right away:)
Tutor me is the best tutor system I have used ever! The tutors are so knowledgeable they're very patient and very helpful. They don't just give you the answers they make you figure it out and teach you how to apply your knowledge to get the answer. Hands-down it's the best tutoring system!
I have been tutoring in this site since December 2016. The classroom is very sharp and easy to use by both the students and tutors. I recommend any student who wants to improve their grades in science courses to try out TutorMe. Hope to see you guys there!
TutorMe has by far the best tutors available on the web. I was close to failing my Chemistry class, and TutorMe's tutors worked with me to get an A on my final. They are available 24/7. Seriously. I worked with tutors at 8am, 10pm, and 3am. They are available instantly, around the clock. It's unbelievable. I will continue to use them when I need help. Thank you TutorMe!
