Benefits of Tutoring with Orcas

Financial Independence

As an Orcas Partner, the hourly rate of your independent tutoring services (“Tutoring Services”) varies depending on your experience and qualifications. This means that the more hours you provide Tutoring Services, the higher your rate becomes. Once you have reached a certain amount of experience hours of Tutoring Services, you will even be able to set your own prices that shall be paid by the users. 

It might even happen that you get asked to provide Tutoring Services to two or three kids at a time, in which case your rate more or less doubles or triples per hour of Tutoring Services that shall be paid by users in this case.

Flexible Hours of Tutoring Services

We know that you might still be studying, have a full-time job or simply other responsibilities you have to attend to. This will definitely not interfere since you can choose your own time for providing Tutoring Services. How it works is that a parent or a user will request a certain date and time. 

Depending on your availability, these can be amended or if it really doesn’t work out, you can decline the request. No need to worry though, this happens all the time and we completely understand. We’ll help you find a request that suits your schedule for providing Tutoring Services..  

Providing Tutoring Services From Home

This isn’t always, but there is the opportunity to provide Tutoring Services via an online platform which means that you will be able to tutor remotely (from the desk in your room or while on a weekend trip to Sokhna). 

Parents or users are the ones that opt for this option and you will have to pass an additional assessment evaluation apart from the mandatory training session to be able to use the Orcas Application and platform for Providing Tutoring Services Remotely.

Where Will I Be Providing Tutoring Services?

All our partners work in different locations. Unless you are an Online Tutor, the tutoring primarily takes place in the users homes. In your application you will be asked in which Zones you would like to provide Tutoring Services in (Tagamoa, Sheikh Zayed, Maadi… etc).
 
This better helps us find users that are close to you and decrease the amount of commuting you have to do. You can of course always alter your zones.

How Do I Increase My Tutoring Services Hourly Rate? 

Almost all of our tutors start at the bronze level unless you have previous teaching experience or so, this can vary according to the T&Cs and Policies. Apart from that, we have a pointing system that grants you different ways in which you can increase your own rate:

1.  This includes getting 5-star ratings from parents and users once you have completed a package. 
2. Helping out other tutors by writing insightful blog posts on our website with tips and tricks. 
3. Completing more Tutoring Services hours
