From Chuck Cohn - FOUNDER & CEO
As a high school honors student, Chuck struggled to find a highly effective tutor who could help him with his more difficult Advanced Placement classes and standardized test preparation. The overpriced big-name national tutoring companies didn’t offer personalized service in specific subjects and spent little time on their tutor recruitment efforts. They also didn’t sufficiently leverage learning technology and content. Searching on directory sites or tutor marketplaces yielded spotty results. Cohn recognized that there was an opportunity to provide best-in-class tutoring through a curated marketplace at a moderate price in the comfort of clients’ homes and online by focusing on identifying outstanding tutors and eliminating the extra costs traditionally associated with national tutoring companies. In 2007, while he was a student at Washington University in St. Louis, Cohn recognized that two of his good friends would make perfect tutors: they were brilliant, friendly, and could explain difficult concepts better than any tutor he had ever had. Cohn founded Varsity Tutors and partnered with his two brilliant friends as the first two tutors. The feedback he received from parents was outstanding and so he began searching for other talented individuals who had the communication and technical skills necessary to be amazing tutors. Since then, Varsity Tutors has grown to over 10,000+ tutors across the United States, established a team of expert educational directors, and built powerful online learning technology.

I have been working at Varsity Tutors full-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Varsity Tutors delivers on everything that they promise and more. When I first interviewed, the job sounded too good to be true: work from home; 3 day weekends; work as an educational consultants for great families; great pay; great benefits; easy to bonus. I even asked in the last round of interview "Okay what's the catch?" There are none. Varsity Tutors is an amazing company that is constantly growing and changing for the better. I really enjoy working with my colleagues. There were virtually no cliques; everyone is friendly and helpful. Management is great and truly wants you to succeed. Upper management listens and implements your feedback and encourages you to be innovative. Success is measured in more than just dollars and cents. I still cannot believe how much I love my job.
The hours are LONG. Expect to work 45 - 50 hours a week. The perk is the schedule is flexible around what you need; and you get a 3 day weekend every other weekend.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work! It really makes us employees feel special and a part of something bigger when we see you and chat with you regularly.

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Varsity Tutors.
The interview process was pretty easy. I was very surprised as to how quickly they hire. I assume it's because the demand for tutors in my area is very high. The second interview is done via Webcam, and unfortunately I was having technical difficulties. They were very accommodating and understanding. It all happens very fast, though.
