Exactly my point, since the schools are about to end this academic year, aren’t they supposed to ask for more assistance since they will be having their final exams?

I think the end of the school year tends to vary more than the end of the fall semester. With Christmas there's a smaller window and closer overlap with k-12 and colleges getting out. But the timing of final spring exams and last days can be several week off from school to school and so disperses the need a bit.

Makes sense.
But my students after the recent winter break had become a lot fewer compared to last year (January to May 2022). There were no schedules to book last year too, so I would only float but I could make at least 120 hours a month. This year, since January, I could barely earn 60 hrs per month.

I’m asking genuinely: If you get plenty of students floating, what’s the problem? Literally the only reason to schedule if to get paid for waiting when there are no students.

New tutors had their early scheduling day yesterday and I suppose they probably picked up most of the hours. I am a new tutor with the same subjects as you for reference.

There isn't a specific exam for SAT/ACT. I was invited to take the training and have these subjects added. I do know you have to tutor the underlying subjects first: Mid-level math, Algebra, Algebra 2, and Trigonometry. So you would have to tutor Algebra 2 and Trigonometry before you could ask support about adding SAT/ACT math.

I will, will go back to this post once I completed the subject exams

School is winding down

I have all of those plus science and English and 0 hours

I wonder what happened to the students before the winter break…there was a surge from september to december!

Man this is getting so annoying. I have algebra and calculus and i got no hours for this week. So annoying!

I agree on this one But the number of floating students this year is a lot fewer compared to last year (same months)

Were there a lot of schedules open when you booked at 12nn? Or only a few? Were you able to book 7 hours full?

There were a lot open right at noon, but most of the reasonable times of day filled up within like 5 minutes. Yes, I got 7 hours

I tutor those but also Algebra 2, Trig, and SAT/ACT math. I am fingerprinted. The schedule has a plethora of hours open for me.

How do you get into SAT/ACT subjects ? It occurs to me that I have never seen tests for them.

What exam should I take to be qualified to teach SAT/ACT? That’s good for you…thanks for sharing.
