The pay's great, but you just won't get in that many hours.

I worked at Princeton Review part-time (less than an year)

Pros

The pay is pretty high ($18,00), and they provide the materials for you to give to the students. You go off TPR's curricula, but teaching the SAT lesson plans within the allotted time is managable.

They also reimburse drive-time, which is particularly helpful if you end up teaching at a place that's very far from your home or from the corporate offices.

Cons

The job's really less than part time, since you'd only get about 8 hours max or so. You get paid for proctoring the SAT exams on Saturdays, but it's only about $10/hr.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management would benefit by finding out where their employees live and asking them to go to schools or places that are within relatively close geographical proximity to those areas. It's somewhat unrealistic to expect people to drive from one city to another just to teach for 3-4 hours.

    I worked at Princeton Review part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly, accessible staff
    Proctoring: very clear instructions about testing procedures, timing, students, etc.
    Very prompt and frequent email communications
    Lots of work opportunities.

    Cons

    Proctoring, when not at a TPR facility, may be confusing sometimes. Even when I arrived half an hour in advance, I sometimes still have trouble finding the testing location, and venue administrators are only sometimes knowledgeable about what tests are happing where.
