    Former Employee - Tutor I in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Tutor.com part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible time, some students are sweet!

    Cons

    1). The so called mentor is extremely extremely extremely extremely extremely extremely extremely extremely nitpciking you for just about anything, especially criticizing you for "giving answers", sometimes you explain 1+1, and the student say it is 11, and 5+6 is 56, the student can be VERY rude and very pushy, I has 70 sessions with 19 of them give me 5/5, another session give me 3 (most sessions are not rated at all) , and the so called idiotic mentor still criticize you for the tiny things, I mean their goal is to make your life hard (don't trust this, give a try and you will know)

    2). Virtually no help from anywhere, they insulate you so you can't review feedback for the student 50% of the time, they don't allow you to identify the student, even indirectly, so basically you have no clue what kind of level the student has.

    3). the rating system can be VERY abusive! so many tutors include me, the no.1 thing in our mind is to find a potential troublesome situation and minimize the impact on your rating, and if certain session (based on your experience) is difficult, everyone will avoid it, I've seen students were kept waiting for 50 min at 9PM, where there are probably 30-50 tutors, no one want to help!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are abused, so we will treat the student as trash when we can, if you don't believe this, just wait for complains from kids who said: no tutor is willing to help me, I am frsutrated!
