    I have been working at Mathnasium part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mathnasium is a great place to work. It has an overall wonderful work environment. The people are awesome, my supervisor is awesome and the kids are awesome. I would definitely recommend working here if you're a math whiz.

    Cons

    The only con is the limited amount of hours that a person is able to work, but it is good for a second job if needed to work 2 jobs or for a person's first job ever.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you are doing, it is working out very well for the company.

    It was fun, you learned while you worked, and if you know your stuff it was an easy job.

    Pros

    the training method works well and you are surrounded by people who really enjoy math

    Cons

    you tutor 3 kids at a time at varying levels. Sometimes it is strange to go from calculus to fractions in an instant.

    Advice to Management

    try to block similar math levels to certain time slots

    I have been working at Mathnasium part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is around $10 for someone with no college degree, so it pays a lot better than most jobs you could have while going to school. it's fairy easy to advance. I've been offered an internship to become a center director at the flagship Mathnasium, under Larry Martinek. Which can easily translate into a lifelong career. And I'm only 18 years old, so there's no age bias. Really great place, you really feel like you're helping people.

    Cons

    Limited hours. Most shifts only last 4-5 hours, so working a full work week would mean only getting 20-25 hours a week. If you can even get that. The max amount of hours I can get during the summer per week is around 13.

    Advice to Management

    Mathnasium corporate is really weird about certain things that don't matter as much as they make them seem. Presentation seems TOO important to them. Instructor and center director training should involve interacting with students, not watching videos and slideshows. Also mathenasium recommends certain vendors, but some of them produce really sub-par products. So it would be better to buy binders, business cards, advertisement, etc from local suppliers. the quality is better and worth a slightly higher price. It's also good to support the community your mathnasium is located in, you might make some important connections.
