    Pros

    Working with kids who struggle with math is a challenge but rewarding when you see the progress they make because of you.

    Cons

    Children and hard to work with and this can be a real drain on your morale and how you may interact with them.

    I have been working at Mathnasium part-time

    Pros

    Very casual work environment. The Mathnasium curriculum is great...helps the kids overcome some of their math gaps (if they do the prescriptives). Kids are allowed to work on homework too but they also must do their Mathnasium prescriptives. Best part is seeing some of the kids say that they got a very good grade on a math test! Instructors at Mathnasium are great!

    Cons

    Pay is low, but good for college kids trying to earn some extra money. Two weeks before final exams, there is a surge of students.

    I have been working at Mathnasium

    Pros

    Laid back, professional environment, respected position, fun and challenging work (the children, not the math)

    Cons

    Low pay and little hours. Very close quarters. Children misbehave in various ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The minimum score on the employment test should be higher than 85%. Or the test should be harder.

    Pros

    A well balanced company, growing with excellent potential. If you truly care about Math and teaching children, this is the place to be. Nobody gets rich teaching math, but the company treats it's people well with respect and dignity. A truly great place to work.

    Cons

    It is exactly as advertised. No complaints!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Work with intelligent people. Great job if you're in school. You're constantly improving your math skills which is great if you are an engineering or math major.

    Cons

    Sometimes the children can be a little disobedient but that's just part of the job.

    Not a good place to work if you're looking to get a lot of hours. They are only open four hours a day on weekdays and three hours on Saturday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to retain employees who are professionally trained in the Mathnasium curriculum and can help new hires learn how to teach it.
