    SAT Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Huntington Learning Centers (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview lasted about half an hour; the interviewer first asked me questions about my resume, then she asked me general interview questions. She then explained what the job would entail exactly, and finally, she asked me what questions I had. She was very clear in explaining her expectations for tutors, for example, that they maintain professionalism by following the curriculum yet act as more than "button pushers" and think for themselves. She also explained that tutors eventually train in more than one subject, and they receive the same pay whether the student misses the appointment or not. She stated explicitly that tutoring for Wyzant or advertising tutoring on any other site on the internet was a breach of contract in addition to tutoring for another center. She mentioned that she appreciated my experience and time flexibility, and she would give me as many hours as I would like to work, but she also said the pay for SAT tutoring is $10 an hour. I was surprised that a master's degree on top of teaching certification wouldn't bump this number up more, especially considering the lowest estimate I've heard this company charges for SAT tutoring is $65 an hour. Overall, even though I turned down this job, the interview gave me a good vibe. I think this would be a good job for someone who just graduated from undergrad and is subbing long-term.
