    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunity to train into teaching other topics/grade levels. Friendly, supportive work environment. Accommodates requests for time off just about whenever. Provides tons of support material for teaching nearly any topic.

    Cons

    Hours can vary due to students' schedule and time of the year. Short training period which can make starting a little stressful if you're not a quick learner.

    I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    **Flexible scheduling
    - Great for stay-at-home parents (like me) who desperately need PT evening hours
    - They'll work with you whenever possible if something comes up
    - They're considerate about your schedule preference and always ask ahead of time if you'd like extra hours instead of just putting you on the schedule

    **Decent Pay
    - For the work being done, the pay is decent

    **Keep teaching skills polished without the ordinary teaching duties
    - If you're a current or former teacher, you'll appreciate the fact that at HLC you don't need to plan, grade homework, nor do you have to deal with parents (unless you're an AD or Director), but you have the opportunity to stay sharp in your field of expertise (English, Science, etc.)

    **If you work "on the floor" and qualify to teach test prep ...
    - No two days are the same
    - You get opportunities to earn a slightly higher rate of pay for test prep

    **Great management
    - They listen
    - They're encouraging
    - They get involved with the kids

    Cons

    - Schedule can change often, though not always the center's fault - parents call in late or sometimes don't call in at all
    - Pay rate may need to adjust in the near future as cost of living rises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope you have an opportunity to share your insight and experience with the CEO so that there can be continuity amongst all HLC locations across the nation and there can, perhaps, be greater experiences had by all -- employees and students alike.

    Helping students of varied ages.
    4 days at 9 hours and 1day 4 hours.
    Very detailed testing and in the approach for each student.
    Getting new curriculum for Common Core.

    Wish I could work with some of the students more frequently to see more rapid progress.
    Scheduling is a pain because constant changes.

    I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Motivated students who seem eager to learn and willing to do the work necessary to improve their performance in the related Math areas that they have tested weak in; sharp colleagues to work with; great marketing program brings plenty of hours; flexible, honest and fair management who always seem willing to work with you to help you meet your other obligations while still recognizing that the business requires that the students' needs are being met.

    Cons

    Sometimes the earlier afternoon hours may conflict with full-time substitute teaching openings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a program to make student and parent testimonials to Huntington Learning Center about a Tutor available for promotion use by the Tutor about which the testimonial is about.

    I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The main emphasis is on student success and progress toward goals. For tutors, it is supportive and flexible.

    Cons

    It is part time, and hours change week to week based on the the number of students and tutors' time frames.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The program of student assessment then a curriculum for that student based on the assessment is excellent. The inclusion of parent and schools is impressive. This particular site is outstanding in its support of its tutors as well as its students and their parents. Some materials need updating at the corporate level.

    I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Competitive pay
    Work one-on-one with students
    Great management staff
    No micro-management
    Friendly, family environment
    Kind and devoted staff
    Ability to make a difference in a child's life

    Cons

    i honestly don't have anything bad to say about working at HLC. Yes, it's very part-time but that is explained to you at the beginning. Yes, the pay rate is not going to make you a millionaire, but since the program is laid out for you, you don't really have to come up with any teaching ideas or plan any lessons on your own. You just follow the plan that's printed out for you, which means you shouldn't be paid the equivalent of a teacher's salary or even a private tutor's salary because you have much less work to do. In the center where I work, all of the teachers/management are friendly and competent. I only wish it could be full time!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The math program is in great need of re-organization.
