I like this site because it is a one stop shop for tutors on the Internet. This site compiles many different tutoring companies and services to create a nationwide search for tutors., TutorVista, Crown Tutoring and WyzAnt tutoring services are all listed here for quick access. One draw back is that all the tutors are not directly employed by Tutorz so they can't ensure a 100% response rate to you requests.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to Use, Google like site construction

I like the website... It actually ended up referring me to another tutoring company.. TutorNation which had the math Tutor I needed.

I've used Tutorz to find a good tutor for my statistics class. Uhnnn, just thingking of stats makes my body shiver -- I hated this dreadful subject. Anyway, I did ok in stats, much of which I have to thank to that tutor. I also received some tutoring on that online tutoring site appropriately called Tutor and got a few of question answered but I had to switch to a new tutor with each session.

Technical Remarks:

I liked how easy it is for me to find a tutor. But what I would like to see is a filter to sift through all these tutors. A filter such as masters-miniumum would be good. Also the logo is a bit ouf of style. But what can you expect, it's free.
