    Caring group of people looking to help the kids

    Tutor (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsAs an All Kids Count tutor, you are told upfront and reminded over and over that it is all about the kids, which I found very reassuring since I'm so used to tutoring gigs being more about just an 'easy' after school job.
    You create your own schedule and are paid higher than other tutors on campus.

    ConsThere really weren't any cons. I loved it!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
