I have been working at Varsity Tutors

Pros

They'll definitely get you clients. You are obligated to submit reports after each session, which I actually enjoyed because they allowed me to stay on top of the progress the student was making.

Cons

Pay was about 20% less than similar companies and some clients were a little far.

Communication was somewhat lacking.

No opportunities for pay increase

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay tutors slightly more and do a more thorough job of interviewing clients.

    They are still working through some technology quirks, but those problems are not too difficult to work around.
