    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (Washington, DC) in January 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was rather difficult; however, I understood why once I finally earned the title and honor of becoming a Varsity Tutor. It requires extensive work with regard to providing updated and accurate education levels and official paperwork from academic institutions, background checks, review and edits numerous times by the VT staff of your profile, resume, education/philosophy statement, picture, and subjects that they approve based on those (just to name a few). I have to say although it felt rigorous at times, I understood with each step the reason why, they are so thorough with regard to whom they select to represent them. I would do it over a thousand times (which actually we do a lot to keep everything up to date and constantly reviewed) because of how fantastic it feels to be a Varsity Tutor.

    Interview Questions

    • Submit a full, detailed, updated and accurate transcript of my studies to ensure that the information I provided via my resume and application were accurate; in order to establish the areas of expertise that I would be best suited to tutor. As well, a phone interview, background check, review of each aspect of my profile and subject areas were validated.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors (Boston, MA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    You have to record videos onto their third-party HR interview-automation platform. No indication about how they review them; I rambled a lot but apparently made the cut. You have to submit test scores and transcripts (just copies, not official ones), and answer a variety of long and repetitive questions about your tutoring pedagogy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors.

    Interview

    There is an online application process that then prompts you for a taped interview. You have a few days to complete the interview which consists of a few questions that are predetermined. The questions appear on the screen and you are given a moment to prepare your response, which is recorded. At the end it asks you to select a question from the subject area you are most interested in tutoring, solve the problem, and explain the questions and concepts you would ask and reinforce with the student in order to adequately solve the problem.
    There was a follow-up phone call with a representative from the company with a couple questions.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Varsity Tutors.

    Interview

    I conducted survey research at a university for many years and taught in secondary schools for even longer after that. As educators, we pride ourselves on clear, precise questioning for valid assessment. Varsity Tutors had about ten questions per “question” in its online interview. The email inviting me to interview said the interview would take 8 minutes or under, but I had to answer 10 questions, which had several ingermane, sub questions. The questions had little to do with quality instruction and student learning and much more to do with standardized testing. They were also poorly worded and occasionally grammatically incorrect. As a teacher, I was most disappointed about the emphasis on outcome versus process in the questions.

    • Do you take the SAT (or other standardized tests)? How did you score?   Answer Question
