    Math Tutor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sylvan Learning Centers (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward. Walked into the building without an application and asked if there were any part time positions available. They asked me about my educational background, and then told me to come interview with them the next day. Interview is easy. I have almost no prior teaching experience and no certification but I am pretty experienced in college math because of my degree, and that is what they're looking for.

    The interviewer was very friendly and just wanted to know my personality. As long as you show enthusiasm that you want to teach and make a difference in peoples' lives, you should have no problems. It was a very easy interview.

    Only drawback is a ton of paperwork to do after the interview if you're offered the job and takes at roughly 45 minutes to complete.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sylvan Learning Centers (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    It was a standard process. They called me in for an interview. We went over my resume, background in teaching, and years of experience in different content areas. I explained why I was looking for part-time work. I was able to ask a lot of questions. I remember asking about the student population, opportunities for more hours and promotions, available technology, and the staff. My questions were all answered. I felt like I got to know the organization very well during the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sylvan Learning Centers (Jersey City, NJ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was short, to the point, amicable and easy. The interviewer told me a great deal about their goals, focus and culture. She mentioned the requirements and expectation very clearly. I was told about the background check (expect that with any job involving kids, especially). I got a call back the next day and they helped with the internal certification on their training system (paid).

    Immediately they were aware of my qualifications from a resume I had submitted for review. the interviewer was polite and made me aware of the center expectations of their teachers and salaries were discussed. I was made aware I had to pass an intelligence test on computer prior to being hired. All progressed well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sylvan Learning Centers (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Interview process wasn't bad, but it was kind of long. We had to take assessment tests first. For English, there was an ELA writing and reading test. The interview was pretty casual, and not really super stressful. Brace yourself in the mock tutoring, and remain calm and composed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sylvan Learning Centers (Houston, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was given a phone interview, with an offer for the position immediately, because I was needed that week. I went into the office to do the necessary paperwork and meet the director. I had worked for the school district, so that probably shortened the interview process.

    Negotiation

    There was none. They did give me mileage, but I did not find out about that until later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sylvan Learning Centers (Charleston, SC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was very quick and perhaps more relaxed-than-standard; they were especially interested in my math skills, since math teachers are few and far between at that particular center. They sent me home with a packet to fill out and asked me to let them know when I could start. I did not find out until after I was hired that I needed to have a teaching certificate to secure my position.
