    I have been working at Mobile Minds Tutoring part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love working with the children and building my own lesson plans. The children like me and I like them. As a substitute teacher I can make my schedule as flexible as I need to working as an 'in-home- tutor. I enjoy working one on one with children of different age groups. Tutoring rounds out my day.

    Cons

    The paperwork is endless. Just when you think you are finished... you're not finished. It can really take away from the joy of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know it's difficult to work with so many different districts, and having to keep all your administrative business straight, nonetheless - talking down to your tutors when they are late turning in a form, and or making idle threats to fire them, when they make mistakes on paper work??? Not a good practice. I think you should find a way to praise hard working tutors who keep students and their parents happy instead of constantly reminding them how lousy they are at completing forms correctly. I'm just sayin'... with all the 'seemingly' daily changes in forms... it's a nightmare.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Mobile Minds Tutoring in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position through craigslist and three days later got an email for an interview for the following week. The interview took place over Skype. It was about 40 minutes long and probably one of the hardest interviews of my life. Questions started off simple (Why do you want to tutor? How much experience do you have tutoring? etc.) and become harder as the interview progressed. Some questions I had to stop and think about (How can you relate to children? How would you get a child interested in a subject that he/she is struggling with? etc.). After the interview, make sure to send out a thank-you email to your interviewer (make sure to get their email!). About three days after my interview, I got an email telling me that I was hired and needed to turn in documents and be live scanned.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you get a student interested in a subject that he/she doesn't care for? How would you make that lesson fun?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Tutor for the right reasons, not for the paycheck. You're hired to help children improve academically and every kid doesn't learn the same. Be sensitive to their needs and put yourself in their place. Don't talk down or give them a hard time for not knowing the subject. That's why you're there!
