    I worked at Academic Advantage part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is no supervisor so the tutoring method is completely left up to the tutor. You are assigned a representative that can help you with the paperwork.

    Cons

    travel between student homes, only about 20hrs/week because students aren't home til 3pm, irresponsible parents, you get paid almost a month after you turn in your paperwork

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay $20/hr or tutors will find another company that they will predominantly work with like I did. Make sure their are no discrepancies on how to fill out paperwork.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Academic Advantage.

    Interview Details

    They call you into the office for an interview then send one of your possible future coworkers from their team to retrieve you, who brings you to whatever unoccupied space they in which they will be conducting the interview. I was interviewed by a panel of 2, since they were both looking to fill a position on their respective teams. They ask general interview questions about your background and experience, and if you indicate that you're bilingual, they will ask you a simple question in Spanish, which you will be required to answer in Spanish. For example: "Tell me about the last movie you watched."
