Frequently asked questions

Student

How do I find and contact tutors?

To start visit our home page and by using our search feature you can type in the subject/zip code in the search box and this will give you a list of tutors near your location. To contact a tutor just visit the profile page of a tutor and look for the “Contact me" or “Message to tutor".

How do I choose the best tutor for myself or child?

The best way to find a good tutor is to thoroughly read their profile description. After that you will want to contact them and ask any follow up questions you might have. It’s a good idea to contact multiple tutors offering the same subject in your area so you can pick the one who is the best fit for your needs.

How do I pay the tutor?

If they are a tutor who signed up directly on our website (and not our partner’s site) then you would have to make that arrangement directly with the tutor as ilcusa has no involvement in the payment process. The most common method of payment for in-person tutoring is to pay them in cash or check, although some might offer other means of payment such as PayPal.

How much do tutors charge?

This is completely up to the tutors themselves. Ilcusa tutors have the option of charging between 5$ and $99 for a lesson although the average tutor in general charges between $25 and $35 per lesson.

Are the tutors on your site pre-screened?

Ilcusa is a does not directly screen tutors. You should always use caution and common sense when dealing with anybody online that you do not have a preexisting relationship with.

Why do I get redirected to another site when I try and contact some tutors?

We have a partnership with some 3rd party sites who list tutors. This allows us to offer a very comprehensive database of potential tutors to students.

What if I have more questions?

What is the purpose of your website?

The simplest answer is our site allows tutors and students to connect with one another for mutual benefit of both parties.

Is there any fee for tutors?

The site is completely free for tutors to use.

How does the student pay me?

This is completely up to you and the student (or the students parents) to arrange. Ilcusa has no involvement in the payment process. The most common forms of payment would be Cash/Check and in some cases a 3rd party payment service such as PayPal.

How can I stand out from other tutors?

Completing a detailed profile explaining you credentials and experience is probably the most helpful way to generate contacts from students. You also want to make sure you complete each subject you offer with details that would make you stand out for the given subject.

How many subjects can I offer?

At this time we allow each tutor to offer a maximum of 5 tutoring subjects.

Will I get jobs from your website?

This depends on too many factors to give a definitive answer on. All we can say is that ilcusa was built for the purpose of helping connect tutors with students and each month we get 1000s of visitors looking for qualified tutors.

How do students contact me?

Students interested in your service will contact you by filling out the contact form on our website. Once this has been done you will receive a notification email to log in and you can review and respond to the potential student.

Why do I get redirected to another website when I click some tutor ads?

In addition to allowing tutors to sign up on our website, we also host our partners tutoring profiles. This gives our website a more comprehensive list of qualified tutors to students. If you are already signed up with our partner Wyzant then there is no need to also sign up on our website because you will already be listed on ilcusa.

Can I offer online tutoring?

Sure. While the majority of lessons offered by tutors are in person you are more then welcome to offer your service to students online.
