Mediocre with terrible management

Former Employee - Teacher/Tutor  in  Washington, DC
Former Employee - Teacher/Tutor in Washington, DC

Pros

Salary, flexibility. Great pay if you're in college and need some extra money for only a couple of hours of work.

Cons

Poor communication with management and office. Lack of trust in teachers. Office was rude (even the students would complain). Many teachers I trained with have left as they were fed up of the office's attitude and negativity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication and invest in teachers instead of looking for every excuse to weed them out.

    A great summer job; too uncertain for long-term work

    Current Employee - MCAT Review Teacher  in  Nashville, TN
    Current Employee - MCAT Review Teacher in Nashville, TN

    Pros

    For a pre-med with time between college and medical school, this is an excellent part-time. Teaching hours are generously paid, and everything from training/prep to transportation and supplies is compensated. Helping students in a similar position to you is rewarding. Administrative people at the local office are friendly, laid-back, and helpful. You pick your hours and days.

    Cons

    You're hired as a contractor, so there's no guarantee you'll work as many hours as you want, or even at all. Training is intensive, and passing it is not certain. Trainings for different MCAT subjects are not always available in the near future. Expect to spend plenty of time going over material before class.

    Great Tutoring/Teaching Opportunity

    Current Employee - SAT Tutor  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Current Employee - SAT Tutor in Los Angeles, CA

    Pros

    Flexible and able to get you teaching without much experience. Good chance for upward movement.

    Cons

    Efficiency of your work flow largely determined by the back office staff. When the staffing shifts around too much, you lose a lot on continuity with the jobs you can get assigned to and the consistency of getting staffed on classes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to stay consistent with giving out teaching assignments. Sometimes its quite apparent that its not a level playing field amongst teachers and work available.
