Interview

I filled out their application on LinkedIn. They asked for proof of AP scores I earned as a student and a bachelor's degree. Shortly afterwards they contacted me for a short phone interview which was not technical. They followed up with a online video interview. Before this second interview, I had to identify subjects I could teach on their website and take quizzes on them. The second interview mainly assessed proficiency in my areas of expertise (I had to answer a few questions and explain how I would teach the student the content).

    Interview

    There is an initial interview with Hirevue, then a phone interview. Hirevue is recorded via your webcam and is pretty intensive. Be prepared to talk about pedagogy. Most of the questions involved "how would you do x, y, or z."

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I filled out a short application on the website. Heard immediately by email that they wanted me to do a 20 min video interview. The video interview had 14 questions about tutoring style and past experiences, took closer to 45 minutes for me to complete. Also,there were different exams on the website for me to take to be certified to tutor those subjects. A couple hours later I was emailed to have a phone call with an HR rep. The phone call was not really an interview, just to ask a few quick questions on my tutoring availability and then offered me the contractor position. The whole process was very simple!

    The interview process went over a bunch of different questions that had to do with the math and science subjects I said I could tutor. Overall, the interview experience was not bad and I enjoyed the person I interviewed with. This company is on top of making sure that its tutors know the material they are teaching inside and out.

    Phone interview answered a few basic math questions and then a video interview with more involved math questions of a variety of levels. Online interview used their interface that you would use with the students so had to show that you could work with that.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (Houston, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    After you submit your application you are sent a link to an application called Hirevue which lets you record an online interview. You are given time to answer some questions but its a bit intimidating as you're talking to a camera and not to a person.
