    Pros

    Great culture, fantastic leadership, great franchise and service model, solid training and support for franchise owners and tutors. It's an honor to be a part of the organization.

    Cons

    None to mention. It's a high expectation, high performance place to work, which may not be for everyone.

    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.

    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 Management

    Close down shop and rework your entire business plan.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    I can design my own schedule and choose to work with people I really love being with.

    Cons

    No cons for me - I really like it.

    Advice to Management

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

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    The job pays well per hour. I am free to accept or decline jobs as I wish.

    Cons

    The travel time/mileage to clients' homes is not compensated. The prep time to create assignments and submit session reports is not compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Pay tutor mileage for traveling to clients' homes.
