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 love working from home and the flexibility Varsity Tutors provides. Even though my co-workers are in different cities, we get along really well and everyone is a pleasure to work with. As the company continues to grow, it's great that the employees have the opportunity to contribute to ideas and the big picture. I feel that my opinion is valued and I am respected by my peers.

    Cons

    It's really hard to balance your work and personal life. It takes a lot of personal time management but it's not impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Please offer more professional development/training
