Am I qualified to tutor?

You must have at least 1-3 years of tutoring experience, combined with excellent communication skills, teaching methodologies, and a minimum of B+ the courses/subjects that you offer.

Why should I join the Synkers tutor community?

Verified tutors on Synkers will have access to our community’s massive network of students via our app, allowing you to build your credibility, and continuously connect with new students. You will also be able to manage your tutoring business, from bookings, payments, and schedule at your fingertips, noting that we will provide you with a free prepaid Visa card.

At Synkers, we invest in our tutors, which is why we continuously conduct training sessions allowing you to develop and enhance your teaching skills. You will also get certified by the British Council upon completing 50 tutoring hours on the app. Our top performing tutors will also get a chance to become interns at leading local and regional firms in the industries they teach on our platform. Apart from that, our tutors get official letters of recommendation from Synkers, which will help them in applications to graduate school or career opportunities they wish to apply for in the future.

How much do I get paid per session?

You will be able to set your hourly rate. We do advise you to keep your rates at a reasonable price (we recommend $20‚Äď$30), especially when starting on our platform. Keep in mind that the hourly rate is an essential factor students and parents consider, so to be more competitive, try to keep it within reasonable ranges. Eventually, once you rack up great ratings and reviews, as well as a lot of hours taught, you can increase that rate.

Where does a session take place?

You and your tutee will have full discretion when it comes to choosing the right venue for a tutoring session. You can also decide to meet online or in person.

In the case of physical meetings, Synkers recommends holding sessions in public spaces, such as libraries, cafes or on university campuses. Parents who request home tutoring sessions should always ensure adult supervision for the duration of the session.

How do I get paid?

Synkers has its own secure, online payment system powered by VISA CyberSource, which your students will use to pay for the sessions you tutor. As a verified Synkers tutor, you will automatically get a prepaid Visa card, free of charge, upon the completion of your first tutoring session paid by card.

Once your prepaid VISA card is ready, we will contact you to come and pick it up from our offices. Synkers will cover the fees for creating the card; however, if you lose your card, you will have to issue a new one and pay the card fees. If your student selects to pay you in cash, please make sure you have the necessary funds in your debit/credit card account before Friday of every week. If your student chooses to pay by card, we will automatically deposit the amount we owe you every Friday of every week.

What if I don’t have a debit/credit card?

It is one of the main steps to add your payment method and set your debit/credit card as default on the app. This is because students have the freedom to choose the payment method that suits them and we cannot impose cash as an only option (especially for parents who prefer to pay the tutor by card). Additionally, the accounting team settles the Synkers booking fees weekly with the tutor through their default payment method. This is to save you from the hassle of coming to the office to pay the booking fees in cash. Rest assured that our payment method is highly secure and operated by BLOM Bank and powered by VISA CyberSource.
