What’s the approval process for becoming a tutor?

At Penzils, we vet through every single tutor application. Upon completing this short application, your submission will be screened and if selected you will be asked to schedule a 10 minute interview. We have an approval rate of ~40%.

How are Penzils tutors paid?

Penzils tutors are paid on a weekly basis. Money is directly transferred to your account and a summary of your sessions is sent to your email.

How am I connected with students?

A member of the Penzils team will notify you via SMS when there is an opportunity available with instructions on how to take the opportunity. Students can also reach out to you over our website and details of their needs will be sent to your email.


What subjects and skills can I offer on Penzils?

Penzils currently offers over 90 subjects and skills which you can choose from. If you would like to add a subject or skill outside of that list, that subject or skill will need to be reviewed and approved after your interview.

How many subjects and skills can I offer?

You can offer as many subjects as you would like.

Can I charge different rates for different subjects?

Yes, you can choose the pricing of your services from $20-$35 per hour.

Can I tutor online?

Yes, but from our experience the vast majority of parents prefer in person tutoring. We highly recommend that you open yourself up to in-person tutoring to make yourself available for more opportunities.
