    It's good as a side job to earn extra money

    I have been working at Tutor Doctor part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is a good side job with flexible hours. They ask you if you are willing to work with a particular student and you accept or decline. You work out the hours with the family you are tutoring for. They pre-screen the family and the home before you go tutor there.

    Cons

    Sometimes you don't get very many students or hours, so you definitely could not make a living wage from this job. This is the type of job to make some extra money on the side. I don't like how they pay per hour because for each student you would only have 1-5 hours a week on average. They do not compensate you for gas or time driving and you must provide your own materials for tutoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend giving some sort of compensation for gas or mileage.

    I have been working at Tutor Doctor part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is better than competition. And they have a nice bonus policy. I worked for another local company and was a substitute teacher in TUSD (dreadful) and found Tutor Doctor had more to offer their tutors: They have flexible hours and let me choose to accept a client or not. If I want more hours they try to accommodate me.-They match tutors with students like computer dating but one of the owners ultimately makes the choice. They keep me in a close proximity to students so I don't have to drive far.

    Cons

    Isn't good if you want a 40 hour job but it helps pay my bills while I am working on my masters at U of A.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! How about a holiday party with the tutors?

    I wouldn't do it again.

    I worked at Tutor Doctor as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is high. $20/hr! You can make your own schedule and your paychecks are mailed straight to you. And they don't take taxes out so you get to keep the whole paycheck. If you're a student it keeps your skills sharp.

    Cons

    The biggest issue is that you're only paid for the time you tutor, not the time you sit in traffic and get to the tutoring location. I got sent out about 20 miles away for one of my jobs. And most of the students go to high school and want tutoring after school so you're probably going to be driving during rush hour. I tutored math so one day I thought about it and realized I ended up spending about 2 hours for every hour I worked so even though I was making $20/hr I was actually really getting more like $10/hr. And that's before I factor in the cost of gas and wear on my car. Long story short, if you do decide to work for them accept jobs close to home because even though they say they'll reimburse you for gas, they won't. They make you pay for your own background check which was only $30 but that's still a good hour and a half of work. Also once I decided to stop working for them the management became super unhelpful. They stopped responding to my emails and phone calls entirely. I never ended up getting paid for my last month of work. I pursued them for a few months, thought about taking them to small claims court and then just chalked it up as a lesson learned. I only worked part of the month and had only one student so it was only $50 but it's definitely something to watch out for if you take on multiple students and work the full month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay me my last check! lol
