Ratings and Reviews
Some convenient features. No crashing as mentioned in other reviews.
Default 1 hour lesson time is great. Scrolling minute by minute is not. Showing the 25 word count is great. The messaging is cute but I miss the days when direct response worked just like email with threading and subject lines within my own email. Also still have to go to the website to view lesson ratings and payment information. Then when I go to load the website it tells me I could install the app before I can proceed. So could definitely use a few more features.
I would like to point out to other tutors complaining about commission that working for an agency usually means losing half or more of the bill rate to the agency! I have been unhappy with several decisions Wyzant has made but websites are not free to maintain and advertising for the tutors is not free. Word of mouth referral is slow but being at the top of Google search is not. So there would be a lot fewer new students without Wyzant.

Thanks for the nice words and constructive feedback, Beth. We definitely take every review into consideration, and it is our hope that we can build an app that ultimately does everything you need it to do without having to log on to the site. We still have some ground to cover, for sure!
App lacks organization
Many aspects of the WyzAnt app frustrate tutors, although the WyzAnt company itself is fabulous, serving at the forefront of connecting tutors with students online.
Unfortunately, there are many problems. When the address of a tutoring location has been entered for one student, it cannot be copied to a second student. It can only be assigned to one student or assigned to all students, leading to a massive list of shared addresses to cull through when scheduling any session. Even worse, this long list of addresses is completely random, rather than alphabetical or, even better, listed by the frequency with which that student has met at a particular location. Instead, it's total chaos! When corresponding with a student or parent, there is no RETURN key to separate paragraphs, only a SEND button, so the message is all jumbled up instead of organized by neat paragraphs. And I could go on.
Clearly, WyzAnt has not sought advice from top tutors like myself who tutor at 30-40 different locations and have up to 50 students at a time, hence exposing the weaknesses of this app.

We definitely don't intend to frustrate you, and we absolutely do seek advice from a lot of great tutors in our design process - but this feedback is incredibly helpful to us as well, of course. Thank you for the specifics, Computer Geek 0324. We are constantly iterating and updating the app, so hopefully a future version of the client will make things more streamlined and to your liking.
Great service, good app
Wyzant provides an invaluable service to my tutoring business, and truth be told, without Wyzant I wouldn’t have near the success that I do. For tutors specifically, even with the cut that they take (which has improved vastly this year over last year’s tiered system) the Wyzant service provides a great tool for finding clients.
The app itself is good. Improvements to the usability can certainly be made. For example, and easier way to switch between online and in person jobs would be great. But for what the app intends to provide, I don’t really have any major complaints.
Overall, I’m very happy with the Wyzant app and service. The particularly great lesson I just had compelled me to write this review, so perhaps take my glowing recommendation with a grain of salt, but if you tutor, do yourself a favor and get on Wyzant. You won’t regret it.
