What is the retirement plan like at TutorMe?

Pros

From the point of this post, I had not long ago started (a little over a week from now), and I already am enjoying myself and like what is involved in the company. I appreciate that it is the service that is emphasized and supported because people come here to get tutor help which is priority #1. By honoring and respecting the principle of truly guiding the student in their recognizing and strengthening their independent learning, any tutor regardless of time in the field can find their own appreciation getting to work in this company for the love of the job. Consequently, the tutor gets to set their own schedule and establish their style and creative teachings to provide genuine, helpful guidance to students, wherever they're coming from in their learning and educational endeavors. Personally, I also find the virtual tutor lesson space very supportive as well, with its user-friendly tools and screen sharing!

Cons

So far (given I've been in this company for a little over a week now), the most strenuous part is awaiting for PayPal to be verified as this is currently the only way to receive pay, so even when you start working after being hired, you won't receive pay immediately following your first week. Depending on your current circumstances, that may not be a problem or it may be an issue unless you have other work. So please keep in mind that with this--as well as the pay and the logistics of matching with students--this should primarily or initially be seen as freelance work/gig/independent contract (the latter is the technical term used by the company) until you are able to establish yourself fully and consistently with numerous students. (Regarding the perspective spoken of here, for the record, this is not a con.)
