Academic Enhancement: The Study, Peer Tutor

Peer Tutor (Former Employee) Lexington, KY

Pros- Intelligent Coworkers
- Reasonable and understanding management
- Great pay for college students
- Breaks during school holidays!
- Intrinsically rewarding

ConsThere really isn't much I can speak poorly of "The Study"-- occasionally coworkers would slack off and management doesn't easily control or stop that, which forces you to work much harder, but I personally enjoyed the extra work at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate some incentive or require students to provide more feedback for the service they receive.
Possibly require that tutors pass academic tests for the subject they tutor.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
