    I have been working at Tutor Doctor

    Pros

    This is a great side job for any college student or people looking to make extra money

    Cons

    The only negative is occasionally having to drive 15-20 minutes to see a client. Otherwise drive time is usually not that far for me.

    I have been working at Tutor Doctor

    Pros

    None, they pay the lowest rate of any Tutoring agency and they don't even screen students

    Cons

    Everything!!!! The pay is awful and infrequent. Students are not screened some have emotional problems and should be evaluated by a mental health professional. They pay extremely slowly and do so deliberately. Had a situation where a student threatened to kill my infant son if I didn't do his work for him. STAY AWAY!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close down shop and rework your entire business plan.

    I have been working at Tutor Doctor as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The only good thing about TutorDoctor is that they find people for you to tutor within your knowledge and preferred age range.

    Cons

    They don't pay for gas (which is a lot when you're driving 30 min every hour you tutor), they don't pay you for writing session reports off the clock or for preparation, and they charge the families a lot (in other words, they are taking a large cut). Will be quitting asap, but for now, I need the money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your tutors for gas if they drive, pay for preparation and session reports so that the money isn't actually minimum wage, or perhaps even less than that.

    I don't have any advice - they're working really hard to keep tutors, students, and parents happy.

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

    I have been working at Tutor Doctor part-time (more than a 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.

    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?
