    Flexible hours that you get to schedule on your own with the family and great networking opportunity as well. They are all over the Bay Area so travel time is up to you to decide as well.


    Can be a hit-or-miss on how well you click with the student/parents, but that is no fault of the management. Just a part of the job when working with different families.

      Telephone “intake” before going into office. Sample tests at office for skill qualification. In person interview with two staff members (former tutors). Asked to prepare and deliver a lesson as if interviewees were tutees.
