Farewell RareJob!


Yes, you read it right. I am no longer working as an online tutor for Rarejob.

I just have so much on my plate right now. IΒ can no longer juggle 2 jobs effectively so I weighed the pros and cons and ended up letting go of RareJob.

Working with RareJob has been such a great learning experience for me but as with all seasons in life, there are just things that we have to let go. My priorities right now areΒ my family and homeschooling. I know for a fact that homeschooling is demanding so I’d rather lose one job than get insane trying to make it all work.

For those who found my blog by researching about RareJob, don’t worry I am still open to your inquiries. I would just like to apologize in advance if I don’t get to reply right away.

Have a great Friday everyone!

        im about to start at rarejob and im a bit in craze at info overload…grabe na to …ask ko lang pag nagbook ba ang student yung profile at details ng lesson ay reflective sa website? rarejob is now asking me to plot my sched to start eh…halimbawa ba nagplot ako ng sched form monday at may nagbook na student thats it na ba …ur reply will be a lot of help

        1. You can learn everything at once, so relax. Once a student books a lesson with you, you will be able to see the notes to determined what lesson to teach.

  5. Hi. πŸ™‚ I’ve read your blog regarding rarejob. I am interested in applying as tutor. Can you help me ace the tests and TSA by giving me tips via email? I would really appreciate it. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you in advance. πŸ™‚

    Hello, I am interested in applying as a tutor in rarejob. I just resigned from my past company which is rarejob’s competitor. Anyway, I would like to know some tips and soem information regarding the salary? Could you please help me? Thank you! πŸ™‚

    1. The salary would depend on your hourly rate , the number of hours you can work in a week and the number of booked lessons. I believe the RJ website says something about how much you can potentially earn.

    Hi mommadaise!!

    I am going to have my TSA interview this coming Friday at Rarejob. May I have some helpful tips?. There are 2 articles given ( girl & boy ), should I prepare for both lessons?

    Thanks in advance.

  10. Hello mommadaise! I’m Martin! I just passed the exam online and about to take the TSA I’ve scheduled with them. I would love to learn some tips from you as to how to pass the whole process without difficulty. I would really appreciate that! By the way, can you tell me also about their rate? I’ll look forward to your e-mail.

    Thanks ahead and GOD BLESS! πŸ™‚

    Hello mommadaise! can you email me the questions that will be asked on TSA and can you also give me some tips? thanks!

    1. Hi Patrick!
      I don’t really know for sure what will be asked during the TSA. I just provide general tips to guide you. Sent you an email. πŸ™‚

    Hello mommadaise!
    Can you please give me tips and advice to guide me during my TSA. My TSA is scheduled tomorrow. I really need this job because I’m a disabled person and RareJob is a chance for me to earn for my own while I’m at home recovering. Looking forward for your reply. Thank you mommadaise and God bless you.

  13. Patrick says: Reply

    Mommadaise, Do I really need a webcam for the interview? I read it in their e-mail that it is optional.

    1. For the interview, I guess it’s optional. But if you have students, some if not most would prefer a lesson with video.Plus your rate would be higher too if it’s a video lesson.

  14. Hi Mommadaise! I just passed the EPT and have enlisted for the Skype test call. I just want to make sure; this is not the actual TSA yet, right? We do not have to conduct a mock lesson just yet? To my understanding, they’ll just be testing our connections? I hope you can help me out. Very nervous but hoping for the best. πŸ™‚

    1. Yeah, I guess it’s just to check your connection. You should know if it’s the mock lesson already if they’ve sent you the email for it.

  15. Whaddaya know, Daise, I did find your blog while researching Rarejob! Nice to see you again. Can I email you to ask about their current rates these days? I’m weighing my options as well πŸ˜€

    1. Hi Mommy Blessie! Just saw your comment now. Sure feel free to email me. I also emailed you πŸ™‚

  16. Hello!:) Yung hourly rate ba e yung kung ilan 25/50 minutes classes booked na pinag add lahat? Verify ko lang

    1. Yes. Rate is the number of booked lessons slots multiplied to your hourly rate.

    Hello mommadaise!

    Hi there! πŸ™‚ I am amazed to know what you’ve achieve as a super mom! Can you please give me a few tips regarding the TSA? πŸ™‚ I received an e-mail regarding the mock lesson already. All the best to you!

    1. Thanks for your kind words Krystel. I’m not sure what’s included in the TSA as we don’t have such during my time. You just really have to confidence in your abilities and trust that God will give you what you deserve.

    Hi mommadaise! I found your blog while searching for additional info about RareJob, I’m a college student and I just finished my EPT and my TSA is on Wednesday. Can I ask for some tips and advice about the interview and the mock lessons? Also ano po ba yung rates? Per hour po ba or per 30 minutes? And hindi naman po ba mahirap magturo? First time ko po mag-tututor and mag-wowork. Looking forward to your response. Thank you po and more power! πŸ™‚

    hello ms.daise
    i found out rarejob few weeks ago and i found it interesting. i already passed the Exam and about to take the TSA. i hope you could give tips and pointers about the TSA. any response would be highly appreciated.

  22. Hi mommadaise, it’s my first time to teach later, ask ko lng kung papano ko malalaman yung level ng student ko para alam ko yung dapat ituro sa kanya para mapag aralan ko din, please po need ko ng urgent help mo. Thanks.

    1. You can read about it sa RareJob website, once you log in on your account may link dun depending sa topic na you like to know more about. Before opening your lesson slots, make sure you’ve read everything you need to know to help you handle your lessons effectively.

    2. Kindly read the links on the right side of the RJ website, it contains all the information you need to know.

    Hello! My husband just got accepted in RJ this week and started teaching. His rate is 80PhP/hr. Is this the normal rate? I understand before the starting rate is 130/hr. Thank you very much!

    1. The rate really depends on your assessment evaluation score. It can range from P80/hr-P140hr. But then again,maybe that’s the starting rate now. Can’t tell coz’ I’m nolonger with RJ.

  25. hi, i was about to submit my registration form but i am very nervous if what will happen on the next step.. can i have some ideas and tips for the future process? :)) thank you. hoping for your reply..

  26. Hello Mommadaise! πŸ™‚ I read a comment somewhere that an applicant needs a recommendation. Is this true? Another thing is, what about the demo? I mean, online demo. Are they going to give us the specific topic to be discussed or what? Thank you! πŸ™‚

    1. Again, I don’t know how the process for application goes exactly with RareJob since I stopped teaching early this year. Once you apply with them all the things you need to do and expect will be sent via email. Best thing to do is to read the instructions on their email thoroughly and take the leap! Thanks for dropping by!

  27. already passed the EPT but i still didn’t proceed for the TSA because i’m really nervous.. can i have some ideas and tips regarding this matter?? thank you. :))

    1. Really don’t know how the process works now… still, email sent!

    Hi! I will start conducting lessons at RareJob but I have no idea about their books/lessons. Can you help me? Thank you so much!

    1. Kindly browse through links on your RareJob profile page. The lessons you can use are there, just do some navigating. But then again you must check on the notes fro the previous tutor to determine the type of lesson your student is taking or likes to take.

    Hi! I took the EPT and passed. I enlisted for TSA and my interview will be later this afternoon. Do you have any tips or guides on how the TSA works? Or anything that could help me. Thanks! It’ll be very much appreciated.

  31. Mommadaise, I just started teaching at RareJob this week. Can you please give me tips on how to handle last minute booking students? Nakaka-pressure kasi. When you only have a handful of minutes before the lesson starts tapos biglang may magboo-book na student, and you still have to read his/her tutor notes, prepare your lesson/material, etc. How were you able to handle/manage that when you were still teaching? πŸ™

    1. Hi Krystle,

      Whenever I had last minute booking students, I immediately open the notes to see what their previous lesson was and while I do that I engage them in small talk. I guess, it’s something you’ll get to master as you gain experience in teaching. So go and multitask girl! πŸ™‚

      1. Hi again mommadaise! Do you delete a student from Skype after a lesson? How do you remember a specific student if your contacts are already filled with a tons of them? How do you avoid the confusion?

  32. Kas says: Reply

    Hi! I’m really nervous about the mock tutorials. Can you give me some tips? I’ve never had a tutorial job before and I don’t know how to proceed? I’ve read the all the material. Can you give some advice?

    Hi! Can you give me tips how to pass the TSA? thanks! I really want the job because of the pay. And also, how often do they give the wages? is by 15th of the month or the 30th? or is it day-to-day or by week? πŸ™‚ just email me. πŸ˜€ thank you so much!

  34. Good morning Mommy. I am scheduled for TSA on July 21, can you give me some tips for this? Is mock tutorials different from TSA? I would like to try Rarejob to earn because I myself is a homeschooler mom of two kids. Though I read that you quitted rarejob to focus in homeschooling your kids, it’s funny that I want to try this. Hehe. By the way, do you still have a job in oDesk? Thank you for your time.

    Hi mommadaise! πŸ˜€

    I’m also one of the new tutor applicants that just passed the EPT. I’m having my TSA soon- and I’d be really grateful if I could atleast know what to expect.

    So I’ve read that when students book for a lesson, you can view their last tutor’s notes. Do all of those information come with the booking thing? I’m new to the tutoring scene so I’m quite nervous.

    Can I have some tips on how I can be an effective tutor? (besides the ones already stated in the manual)

    Thank you for your time!

    1. Yes , once you got a booked slot, you may view the tutor’s note. Email sent!

    May I know if how many tries have you had to pass the EPT?

    1. Hi Jayson! I didn’t really have experience with EPT and TSA, as we didn’t have them back then. I only had the phone interview then the mock lesson once. If i’m not mistaken, you may re-apply after 6 months if in case you didn’t get through on your first try.

I have been a member of rarejob for how many years but I didn’t able to try even once how to be on online teaching since my job right now is not in line with teaching.
