    Pros

    Work from home is wonderful! Create your own schedule. I have been working for Educate online for 10 years.

    Cons

    You have slow & busy times. There are times where I will not work for 2 months due to no contracts- this is a major con in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Allow full time and try to get year around contracts to keep teachers working

    Pros

    I LOVE being able to teach students from all over the US right from my home. One on one experience really allows me as a teacher to have a real impact on a student. Very cool experience!

    Cons

    Not the same schedule week to week but worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Consider making some teachers full time.

    Pros

    I love talking to students from all over the United States. Students are in different sites; some at home, some at school. This is a great way to feel as if a child is growing in some way, if you're like me and want to teach!

    Cons

    Balancing more than one student is difficult, since the student is working on something new and needs to be monitored.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see a small pay boost for having more than one student in the hour.

    Pros

    It was okay while it lasted. Live online tutoring for Higher Education students apparently at risk. Enjoyed interacting with students.

    Cons

    Suddenly shutdown all higher ed tutoring.

    Advice to Management

    Figure it out.

    Pros

    Work in PJs, flexible hours, no lesson planning! Great technical support for both you and the student! Always someone online to help if needed!

    Cons

    Not all of your time slots fill; no work, no pay. During the summer you get no opportunities, but when they start up again, you might have to wait until November to get back on their schedule.

    Advice to Management

    It's a great virtual place for teachers to help students from all over the country. Keep up the support and curriculum and it will continue to be an awesome place to tutor part time!

    Expectations and goals are high but the support is present to help all employees achieve set goals. Management wants to help their teams succeed.

    Pros

    I have worked for this company for over 9 years and my experiences have been nothing but amazing. The team of folks I work with are amazing, bright, and intuitive. Not only do they care about making a difference in student's lives from an academic perspective, there is a genuine care toward how a customer is approached. Opportunities for growth and stepping into projects is readily available if you want to add extra value to the organization. The students are challenging to work with, but are also so fun to work with. What is better than getting to work from home? I love the flexibility!

    Some positives include, but are not limited to:
    Management
    Students
    Flexibility
    At home work
    Opportunities
    Fun culture
    Meet folks from different parts of the country

    Cons

    This is not a job that you can just check out and consider it a convenience. Expectations are high and demanding but also rewarding. I think many folks believe this is just something fun to do and not really perceive it as work, but it is a job. It can be fun at the same time as demanding during high volume times. But, the low times balance it out. I know if I work hard and put in the extra time today, there will be a slower period (during summer months) when I can relax a bit. It certainly is a convenient schedule for me!

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it! You are moving this company in the right direction! I can't wait to see the future.

    Pros

    A whole new life after Retirement from Public School teaching!. Love my flexible hours, and being challenged to keep up with the fast pace of technology. The leaders within the company give me prompt assistance when needed.

    Cons

    The challenges are like any other challenges when teaching. I always have to be prepared with a variety of ways to meet the student's needs. LOVE IT!!!
