It’s well-known that tutoring is the perfect side hustle for teachers. Many teachers want to supplement their incomes, and what better way is there to accomplish that than doing what you love with a completely customized 1:1 approach to your student. So if you’ve decided you want to tutor, how do you decide where and how to tutor? There are so many companies and platforms out there. Some of them pay you a flat rate, others take a percentage of what you charge and still others charge a membership fee. Below are four reasons why you should choose Chicago Home Tutor!

A recent report from Indeed.com, found that the average tutor pay in Chicago is $24.74/hr. Our tutors start at $40-50/hr with opportunity for growth, so our starting pay is also 60-100% higher than averages in Chicagoland.


Our tutors love us

In a recent survey where 63 of our tutors responded, 100 percent of them would recommend tutoring with us to a friend and the overall job satisfaction rating was 95 out of 100. Based on their feedback, I’m going to break down point by point why they love tutoring with us, and we’re confident you will, too.

We custom match our tutors and students 

The heart of what we do is to match the right tutor to the right student(s). If you’re out there posting your information on Care.com, Wyzant.com, or Tutors.com, then you know how hard it is to land the right student. You may find the perfect student for your skill set, but he/she lives in Hyde Park and you live in Lincoln Park. In your excitement to begin, you start tutoring the student, but you’re sitting in traffic as much or more than you’re tutoring. Or you get a message from a family down the street, but it turns out they want Chemistry tutoring and you’re an elementary tutor.

We offer you students who are within a 15-minute radius of your home or work (so we give you students where you already are within the city or suburbs), and we choose students for your skill set and interests based on our initial conversations. This process is why 95 percent of our tutors expressed that they are happy with our student matching process. We take the frustration out of this part of the tutoring process for you, so you are matched with students whose tutoring needs are in your wheelhouse and conveniently located near home, school, or on your way home.

We’ve got your back

Now that you’ve started tutoring, you may occasionally run into roadblocks. Maybe the student isn’t making progress as expected or communication with the parents is a challenge. Since we are meticulous about matching our tutors and students, obstacles like these are rare. When there are challenges, our whole team is here to support you. We pay our tutors consultation time, maintain a pool of shared resources to which you'll have full access, as well as an exclusive online community where you can post questions and get support. We tailor our support to you and your individual needs. This why 97 percent of our current tutors expressed that they feel supported when challenges arise.

The Pay

We’re in education because we love that moment when things start to click for our students, and we see our students' confidence skyrocket and their lives changed. When it comes down to it, we also need to be paid for our work! When you’re tutoring on your own, it can be uncomfortable and very difficult to chase down your own pay. With Chicago Home Tutor, you decide your pay schedule and are paid quickly via direct deposit. Another question is pay rate, and a recent report from Indeed.com, found that the average tutor pay in Chicago is $24.74/hr. Our tutors start at $40-50/hr with opportunity for growth, so our starting pay is also 60-100% higher than averages in Chicagoland. These are all reasons why 95 percent of our current tutors reported that they are happy with the pay and payment processes.
