The Paper tutor experience

Why Paper Tutors Love Supporting Students

We partner with our incredible team of tutors to help students reach their full potential. Paper is working to improve our tutors’ experience by listening to their feedback and better understanding the challenges they face. Ensuring our tutors have the support and tools they need to help students succeed is vital to our mission.

We recently introduced full-time tutors as an alternative career path for educators. Learn more about our new full-time tutor program.

Understanding what matters
most to our tutors

In order to improve our tutor experience, Paper partnered with an independent, third-party survey company to conduct an engagement survey of our tutors and analyze the results so that we could address their needs and concerns. Nearly 1400 tutors (over 65% of our current tutor workforce) responded to the survey. See below for key insights, takeaways, and an infographic presenting the data.

Why do tutors choose Paper?

Paper sets you up for success. While you’re helping students with their classwork, we’ll be hard at work fostering an environment in which you have opportunities for fun, collaboration, and professional growth.


Flexible hours

We work with your part-time schedule so there are no surprises—you only work hours that work for you. We now offer full-time as an alternative career path for educators.



Paper tutors are permanent employees, not independent contractors, enjoying more income stability. Tutors can also earn more as they gain experience.


Remote work

No commute! Our interactive, chat-based platform allows you to help students from the comfort of your home. All you need is a laptop or computer and reliable internet.



You'll get extensive training to help students succeed, chances to collaborate with fellow tutors, and ongoing mentorship from a dedicated tutor success team.
