    I have been working at C2 Education part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, access to material, training, communication between tutor and center director

    Cons

    Slow seasons means less hours, but they work hard to accommodate schedules. Also, experience will vary depending on center

    Pros

    Very easy job once you get the hang of it.

    Cons

    If students are disrespectful, there isn't a whole lot you can do about it.

    Advice to Management

    Reward teachers not just by time they have put in, but by improvement in student scores, their flexibility (teachers who come in at the last minute often or work on holidays), and their consistency with more generous raises (and perhaps significant holiday bonuses like most companies do).

    Pros

    They're flexible with scheduling; you can basically set your own teaching hours. The kids are all pretty self-motivated and a joy to work with. Materials are provided and they're pretty decent, though there are more than a couple errors/misprints. You never have to deal with parents; you're basically coming in, teaching kids, and that's it.

    Cons

    Again, it's OK for what it is...it's a part-time job, paid by the hour, with no benefits. There isn't really room for growth. It's a nice place to be if you're in between opportunities or need a couple extra hours' work for the money, but that's about it.

    Regional boss is nit picky

    Pros

    Great option for tutors who don't want to or don't have the time to build their own client base. You don't have to travel from one house to another, schedule your own students, worry about how you're getting paid, or advertise to get new students. The admin staff also keeps the parents out of the teaching area; any compliments, complaints, or requests are relayed through the center director or program leads to the teacher.

    Cons

    There is no way to guarantee consistent hours unless you're very good and/or teach multiple difficult or specific subjects, particularly AP bio, chem, physics, calculus, and stats. Low base pay and maximum hourly pay compared to private tutoring ($16-28/hour).

    Pros

    The same "pros" other center directors have noted: the opportunity to help students and many of the people you work with-which sadly does not include upper management.

    Cons

    If you are reading these Glassdoor reviews-it is because you are either a current employee who cannot wait to someday leave one of these yourself, or you are considering working for this company and were warned by the recruiter to disregard what you read here. If you are in the first camp-enjoy! If you are in the second camp-ignore what they told you and read on.
    1. Please understand that fully ninety percent of this position revolves around selling what is a ( very ,very) costly program. Once you sell that program, you are also responsible for ensuring that program goes smoothly. The problem is that there is so much that can go wrong that is out of your control, and doing the elaborate dance to avoid refunds is quite stressful.
    2. Despite their assurances to the contrary, corporate seldom offers genuine support or helpful solutions to any of the myriad problems you will encounter as a center director. And no, flying your V.P.s and upper level managers around to all the centers for half hour visits does not constitute support. Answering a phone call or replying to an email before the end of the week does.
    3. The commission structure is designed to benefit the company, not the people who produce the revenue While it is true that one can make quite a nice commission, that entirely relies on budgets that are arbitrarily set. For example: if your budget is $80,000 ( I told you this was expensive), and you make $71, 950-falling just short of 90 percent of your budget you make zero commission. Zero, nada, no soup for you. They will remind you that you still get your base salary, but remember, you earned every dime of that by doing the dozens of other tasks you have to do.
    4. The financial priorities at C2 are out.of.whack. C2 spends next to nothing on marketing-so you are responsible for advertising your center to the community. However, for some reason, they are extremely generous with the snack budget. If I could have paid for marketing in Pringles and K-cups there wouldn't have been a man, woman or child within fifty miles of the center who didn't know who , what, and where we were.
    5. Your manager does not make commission unless your entire district makes budget. If you don't believe anything else I tell you, believe me when I say that you will have a rough time getting through the days when your manager isn't making bank.
    6. Please read 1-5 again and have a great day!

    Advice to Management

    Nope. I'm all talked out.
