    Good place for students to work

    I worked at Tutoring Club

    Pros

    Great for students, easy going work environment, fun atmosphere, they work with your class schedule and availabilities, I enjoyed working here

    Cons

    I worked as a tutor, which was only a part time position as it was an after school tutoring center. It isn't a full time career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open career tracks for those who wish to further their careers.

    I have been working at Tutoring Club full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    All the pros of working for a Tutoring company rather than tutoring on your own:
    Don't need to worry about networking or advertising
    Can have a pretty steady amount of working hours

    Cons

    The pay is a really small portion of what the customers actually pay for the service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop enforcing inefficient methods.

    I have been working at Tutoring Club part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The program is tailored to each student's needs and makes the tutor's job more efficient.

    Cons

    The program gives little wiggle room to teach different concepts.

    I have been working at Tutoring Club part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is nice. Not stressful. Kids can be a joy to work with. Hours are rather flexible to your schedule. Definitely a good job to be making a little extra money on the side.

    Cons

    Hours are flexible because they offer you so few. The most hours I've ever received in a week were about 20, but it tends to be closer to 9.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guarantee the employees X number of hours a week so they can actually budget around that. No more guessing week-to-week how much they will be able to make.

    Not a good part time job!

    I worked at Tutoring Club part-time

    Pros

    This is a tolerable job if you love to teach or work with kids.

    Cons

    You'll tutor up to three students at a time every hour. The students are typically working on very different assignments, which is hard to balance. If a kid doesn't like you for any reason, then your schedule gets reduced. You will also get called into work with less than an hour's notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some loyalty to your employees!

    I have been working at Tutoring Club part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The staff is small, friendly, and professional. The learning material is personalized for each student's level of ability and progress. Each teacher has the material already laid out for them with some room for flexibility and creativity. Also, the hourly pay is great.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, especially as it gets closer to Summer. This job is best for those who work other jobs during the day. Also, the older kids tend to find a lot of the reading material dry and uninteresting, which I can't do much about except try to motivate the student to read anyway. I occasionally find typos or inconsistencies in the exercises, which doesn't reflect well on the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please think about refreshing the reading material with more contemporary stories and articles. Also, consider investing in some technology too (like educational video games or e-books), as some other tutoring centers are doing. Kids spend half the day at school - a lot of them come to the Tutoring Club tired and disinterested in doing more schoolwork (tokens or no tokens). They would definitely respond to something more modern and engaging.

    I have been working at Tutoring Club

    Pros

    room for growth, good feedback, open communication, positive work environment, 4-day work week, closed holidays, flexible hours, supportive of continuing education, Simple IRA, individual health coverage available with HSA option, employer makes annual IRA contribution

    Cons

    hours can be unreliable since they are based on student enrollment, recession-sensitive, tutors take same vacations as students, days off are unpaid, no sick pay, individual health insurance coverage is expensive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    performance reviews could happen more frequently. tutors should be told when and/or why their hours have decreased, tutors should be kept up to date on policy changes

    More hours, and I will go back to work for you.

    Part Time Tutoring Position (3-4 hours Shifts)

    I have been working at Tutoring Club

    Pros

    Most of the time, the students are easy to work with. For my location, the tutoring comprises mostly of specific help on homework.

    Cons

    Little pay and very short tutoring shifts (3-4 hours). Once in a while you will get a young student who is very difficult to work with and will stress you out for the rest of your tutoring shift

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more money to your tutors. We all know that you are making a killing from having us tutor 2-3 kids per hours at a $50-70 rate.
