    I have been working at C2 Education part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very flexible with work hours and mindful of teachers that are currently in school.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of working at C2 would be having to make photo copies of assignments for the students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Switching over to electronic assignments to print, rather than having to make photo copies would be helpful.

    I worked at C2 Education part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Tutoring kids is fun and fulfilling, and the material C2 provides is not bad at all.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty terrible, especially with no benefits. The center director I worked for acted as though this job was some amazing opportunity, even though the job required a completed bachelor's degree. It was a lot more work than private 1-on-1 tutoring, and significantly less pay than I could demand as a recent Master's graduate.

    I have been working at C2 Education part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Watching your students improve from how they were when they first came in for tutoring is always a rewarding and pleasant experience. Even though some other tutoring companies offer that same reward, I feel that it's especially more common here. My coworkers are also great people who I'm very glad I got to know! Scheduling is very flexible as well, provided you tell your director the days you need off well ahead in advance. Also, my salary is pretty decent, especially when compared to what other tutoring companies may pay their tutors/instructors.

    Cons

    At the center I currently work at, management is not the most organized. Communicating with my director is challenging, as she does not know English too well and does not always make clear exactly what she wants. I learned most of what I needed to know about this job by figuring things out on my own, but the truth of the matter is, my director should've taken more of an effort to explain these important details. Also, training is not sufficient enough, and I can say this because it did not prepare me for my first few sessions well. Resources are also not up to date-in fact, my director delegated me to buy a couple of updated textbooks our center did not have. As the director, it should be her responsibility to make sure that the tutors have adequate resources to begin with-however, she does not make an effort to purchase any new material herself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring directors who can command the English language efficiently, and can also run the centers in a more organized manner. This way, when things don't go as planned, they can be fixed more easily. Also, training your current directors to do the same is not a bad idea as well. Improving the overall management this way will change this from an OK company to a great company.

    Pros

    Building relationships with kids, seeing them improve and go off to the colleges that they want to.

    Cons

    Hours aren't very good (usually 1-9:30PM and work on Saturdays.) Sometimes, I feel like I do a lot more work than I actually get paid for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase salary.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, build connections with students, independently set up lesson plans.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better and not much room for growth, unusual hours, 3 to 1 student to teacher ratio can be overbearing when teaching in 3 separate subjects, depending on the center schedules may not be set until the night before.

    I have been working at C2 Education part-time

    Pros

    - getting to work with students is invigorating. I feel achieved and energetic when I meet my students
    - Training, curriculum and schedules are already provided and you don't need to confront parents directly

    Cons

    - They don't look for full-time tutors. They rather hire full time curriculum specialists. So, there are relatively fewer full-time jobs for tutors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Children are sensitive, so it's always good to be careful what you say and what you do in front of them.

    I worked at C2 Education part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with children and witnessing that moment where a difficult concept finally clicks for them is always rewarding, but there are far better companies that provide the same opportunity.

    Cons

    Extremely poor training methods, not the greatest curriculum, and an incompetent director who barely spoke or understood English and was rude to boot - after the assistant director (who had essentially been running the center for her and who was fluent in both English and Korean and thereby also capable of acting as a translator for her) left, keeping things on track and achieving any sort of effective communication with management became impossible. I'd hope for the company's sake this was just limited to my location, but judging by some of the other reviews, other employees at centers across the US have had similar experiences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire directors who are actually capable of running a business and communicating effectively with non-Korean-speaking employees and clients.
