    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (Sarasota, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was very fun, and engaging. I got to use my video camera on my computer to answer introductory questions about myself and I really liked that because usually, most interviews consist of being talked to about the company and the functions of the position itself. It also incorporated quizzes to ensure that everyone applying has knowledge that would be useful, without looking it up, as their site has an algorithm that measures the amount of time it takes to answer questions, this also weeds out people who would not become potentially good tutors. Everyone I spoke to on the phone was very nice as well.

    Interview Questions

    • They really want to know if you are a flexible teacher, as you will be working with many different styles of learning, and want to ensure you can do that well. They also ask about your background in each specific area you plan to work with.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    The entire interview process is done easily and efficiently online. After submitting the initial application, you can schedule a time to interview. The interview features recorded excerpts of someone at Varsity asking you questions. After you hear the question (and see the script) you get a few minutes to prepare an answer. You then record yourself responding to the interview questions. The pros of this style of interview is the flexibility that it offered with location and timing; I was able to comfortably complete the interview in my own home. The cons were the fact that you cannot get immediate feedback to your responses, like an in-person interview. It was difficult to initially gauge if I was doing well or not!

    Interview Questions

    • Select a subject from a drop-down list and prepare a short lesson on this subject.   Answer Question

    Sales Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview (15 min), Skype interview (30 min), then an in-person interview (1 hour). Recruiters were friendly and helpful and very easy to work with. They also had a networking session at their HQ a couple of days before my interview. I went and got to see the offices and meet some current employees. Quite helpful.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were so straightforward that I don't even remember specifically what I was asked. But there was a role-play in which I played a sales associate and one of the recruiters/interviewers played a potential customer to whom I was to sell a tutoring package.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was a one-sided electronic interview where you receive video and written prompts and you record your answers on a webcam. I was asked about 10 questions of varying lengths and answers had time limits. About half the questions prompted detailed answers while the other half were very much short answer.

    Interview Questions

    • The question that allotted the longest answer time was one where you had to read over different scenarios with students struggling on very specific problems, choose one to respond to, and go into detail about how you would help the student. I chose a scenario where a middle school girl was struggling with solving an absolute value equation.   1 Answer

    I applied online. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors.

    Interview

    The interview process was short- I met with a staff member at a coffee shop and we ran through the typical interview questions, talked about my own test scores and grades, and what subjects I would like to teach. Then we ran through a couple of scenarios/mocks and I demonstrated how I would teach a student that material.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to run through some scenarios of how to tutor a student on a given question. I didn't expect it, but the material wasn't too challenging   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    After I filled out an application, I got an e-mail saying they wanted to interview me! The interview was like a skype interview, except they played me a pre-recorded interview question, and then they recorded my response to the question. It was very weird, but very cool at the same time. I much prefer in-person or phone interviews, but I could see the benefit of doing it this way. About a day or two after I did the video interview, I got an e-mail from a recruiter at Varsity Tutors and they asked me for a follow up phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the questions asked me to prepare a small teaching sample. They gave me a list of hypothetical situations of which I was required to respond to two, 10 minutes to prepare and another ten minutes to explain how I could respond to the situation. I was allowed to used any materials I had available.   1 Answer
