Hello Kelsey,

I've worked for Kaplan Tutoring for more than 4 years. I'd think that it would be up to the families whether you are able to meet in home or in another place. If the company generally provides only in home, then it would be worth talking to whoever matches tutors to students.

However, the website states that all tutoring is done at the student's home which would mean I would need someone to drive me to each student's home.  There's no way that is even practical since no one in my family would be available for transportation.  For me to hire a driver, it would cost me more than $60 for one week I would not be just going to work at one location and going back home, I'd have to travel within my county and possibly across county lines.  The price to hire a driver would be way than I am able to pay since that would be a good chunk of my paycheck since tutors usually only make about $8-10 per hour.  Therefore, would it be acceptable to contact the corporate office and explain that I am interested in tutoring, but due to my vision impairment would not be able to drive to each student's home and ask if they would allow me to conduct my sessions at a local library where I can meet with multiple students on the same day? And online tutoring is not available either, so that's not even an option.  With wyzant, I have a bit more flexibility and can meet students wherever is convenient, but club Z is in-home tutoring.  But is it worth explaining my situation to see if there's something that could be worked out?
