Who are you?

You're somebody who knows a whole lot about something. Math, science, accounting, coding—you name it. Maybe you’re a grad student. Maybe you’re out of school. Your ability to give students VIP treatment with quick messaging and accurate answers sets you apart. Teaching isn't charity after all.

Who are we?

We're an online learning platform that connects students with tutors, and we've been working together as a team since 2014. Most of our work comes via Homework Help. We want to pay you for delivering correct answers on time and help you build a reputation so that you can get work anytime.

Why should you work with us?

Because we value your privacy and protect it. Because you'll get paid for sharing what you already know. Because the students come to you, not vice versa. Work when you want, where you want—and earn good money doing it. You choose your own assignments and you set your own fee.

How does StudyGate handle my privacy?

At StudyGate, your privacy is always our top priority. All activities performed between tutors and students remain anonymous. As a tutor, any information provided to us during your application that can be used to identify you is only visible to site admins for management purposes. Students do not have access to your personal information.

Here's how our tutors have helped students across the US


Your portfolio weighs the most heavily in your application consideration. Typical reasons applications get rejected include, but are not limited to, the following: • Applicant wrote to StudyGate in their bio, but the intended audience is the bio is the student • Grammar errors • Highlighting exams taken instead of the skill set offered • Quality of portfolio issue, lack of specificity, plagiarism, etc. • Lack of professionalism, especially writing in ALL CAPS • Too much focus on hobbies instead of skill set in the bio • Spam post, copy+paste of content from LinkedIn account, resume, etc. • Lack of experience helping college level students
StudyGate offers homework help services to college students in North America and Asia. We started in 2017 and are based in Los Angeles, California.
This isn't full-time or part-time employment. StudyGate is a freelancing platform, and we use a bid system to assign work. We offer work freedom so that you could engage customers on your schedule for pay.
About 15 minutes. Before getting started, you will need your diploma or latest transcript. You'll also want to have your ID on hand for verification purposes and a phone to take a picture of you holding your ID. We aren't huge, and that's an advantage for you! We'll set up a welcome call with you to make sure any and all questions get answered so you can hit the ground running.
No. Having a GTA or TA position in a Master’s program is preferred (but not required). We also see that tutors with online experience on other platforms do well here. Our most successful tutors have a laser-like focus on getting students answers to their questions, on time. There's no certification for that mindset!
We're looking for STEM tutors. Here's a full list of subjects: Accounting & Finance, Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Science (C++, Java, C#, Database, Web Design), Economics, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Statistics, and Probability. But if you're really good at something else, don't be shy!
We review every completed application. This happens a couple times weekly during the busy season. We typically pause aggressive recruiting during the summer months.
We have a work dashboard that allows you to bid on homework help questions and interact with students. We don't get nearly as much online tutoring work, but we have a whiteboard to facilitate communication when it happens. Finally, we provide our tutors with chargeback protection against fraudulent disputes. And we're CONSTANTLY working to provide a better experience for our users. This is our baby, and we won't stop until EVERY interaction is par excellence!
We've seen our best tutors make $13K+ in one month. Top tutors earn $50-$200 per question on average. This is a bid platform, so pricing is determined by the size of the question. As you build a reputation, it gets easier over time to make money. Not that it's overly hard at this time, we are not a publicly traded company like Upwork. But it will be easier to make money on a new StudyGate account in 2021 than 2025.
Tutors with a US bank account have two options: ACH deposit or PayPal. Everyone else can withdraw from their SG wallet using PayPal. Payment requests may be submitted 2x monthly with disbursement within 3-5 business days. Wallet balance must be at least $20 to withdraw.
We charge a 30% tax on confirmed bids. Then we provide a runway to get that number down to 20% as you gain experience and credibility on the platform.
StudyGate requires ID verification for security purposes and to ensure a premium experience for our customers. Besides government IDs, we also accept student IDs for application processing.
StudyGate cannot offer employment, and open accounts are considered under independent contractor status. For more information, please contact the institution that sponsored your visa.
