    I have been working at Spicus Tutor part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get paid on time. Each Korean has a unique story. Staff is very helpful to address any issue. They are really easy to get a hold.

    Cons

    Sometimes you don't have a full schedule in your 3 hour period, so therefore you wont get paid your hourly rate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Spicus Tutor.

    Interview

    I responded to an advertisement posted on craigslist that boasted a tutoring position at $25/hr. Someone responded letting me know that my resume was passed along the the hiring director, and and the director reached out to me to set up a date and time for an interview over Skype.
    (This email also included several questions.. see my note on "Interview Questions."

    It was tricky scheduling the interview due to the time difference (she must have been based overseas in Korea). Despite letting her know where I was located and the time zone, she missed my interview time by an hour.

    The interview itself was incredibly rushed. There was an abbreviated training of sorts on the software used to interface with students. The pay is deceptively low and as an independent contractor there are no benefits.

    After reading some of the other reviews, it was very easy to make a decision regarding this position.

    The pay is per student (per ten minutes) + $13/ per student per hour. The administrative reporting necessary for each student does not seem possible to complete while "teaching," nor conducive to teaching.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were about availability and Internet access. There were two generic, very basic Interview questions.   Answer Question
