Is Motee free?
Yes! Motee’s great features, including sending encouraging messages called Motees, matching up with people in your major and classes, and becoming a peer tutor, are completely free. The only thing that costs money is to hire a peer tutor.
Is Motee available at my school?
Yes! Motee can be used at any 2 or 4-year college or university. You need a valid .edu email account to use Motee. If you have trouble registering, it might be because we have not added your school. Send us an email at [email protected] and we will add your school.
If you log in and don’t see your majors and minors listed, please email the Motee team at [email protected] and let us know which college or university you attend. We’ll get those majors and minors updated ASAP.
Do I have to apply or qualify to be a tutor?
Here at Motee, we believe that anyone can flex their skills to be a peer tutor. Motee tutors are peer validated, rather than qualified by external reviewers. Tutoring is a great learning experience and excellent preparation for the career world. While we don’t require Motee tutors to have specific qualifications, you can expect that your Motee profile will help other students determine if you are a good fit for them.
How do I sign up to be a tutor?
Once you register as a Motee user, go to the Tutoring page. It will ask you to fill in some additional details, including your PayPal address. Once you enter that info, you’ll receive a confirmation email and you’ll be all set to go. Once you’re a tutor, you can turn your Tutor availability on or off at any time.
Tutors earn $18 per hour. Here’s how the rate structure works: students pay $30 per hour for the session, and the Motee app pays 60% of that to the tutor. Tutors get paid approximately every two weeks, and no less than 48 hours after the conclusion of a session. The Motee Team will send payment to your PayPal address, which you provide when you register to be a tutor.
What can I do to help my child use Motee?
Tell them about Motee and how important it is to share with their friends. The more people who use Motee, the better it works!
And, the best thing you can do is add money into your student’s PayPal account for them to use for peer tutoring.
Note to Universities and Colleges
Motee is an open platform for every college or university student on any campus. We ask that community participants follow and conform to their college code of conduct. There are no requirements of the college or administration. Motee wants to add value to the students’ campus experience and be a supplement to the many resources offered on campus.
