    Tutor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Compass Education (Beverly Hills, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The process was lengthy. I submitted my resume online along with an online application. I received an initial phone interview followed by 2nd phone interview. Then I went to the office for a half hour in-person interview. This was followed by a short SAT excerpt test (I think you were only allowed to get 2 out of 20 questions wrong in order to pass). Finally there was a 1 week of training (paid) that culminated in a half hour "teach back" to allow you to demonstrate what you'd learned.

    Interview Questions

    • The most challenging - and ultimately helpful - part of the whole process was the Teach Back at the end of the training. You were asked to adjust responses to different student personality/learning types.   1 Answer
