Not enough money for independent contracting

I have been working at Varsity Tutors

Pros

Sets you up with clients Automated payment system easy to use Good if you like working with kids

Cons

Gives you no training or prep materials (the online prep materials submitted by tutors are a joke)--you are an independent contractor Pays only for time spent tutoring, not for commute or prep time ($20 an hour starts looking a lot closer to minimum wage--possibly less if you factor in gas prices)

    Pros

    Varsity Tutors is a very easy to work with company. They are willing to help you as much as they can, and have a decent enough salary.

    Cons

    I have spent several months with no work from Varsity Tutors. Obviously during the summer and winter holiday seasons there aren't going to be hours, and I plan accordingly for that, but I went an entire semester without having a single student.

    Advice to Management

    I can hustle my own students for substantially more money, and I do because I'm not getting enough hours. I would recommend that there be some kind of active recruiting of students.

    Pros

    I cannot say enough good things about this company! Working from home is amazing, as is having a whole company at your fingertips via Skype! I genuinely enjoy what I do and the people that I work with.

    Cons

    It is really hard to come up with any! Allowing yourself to disconnect from work is the biggest challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
