    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

    I have been working at C2 Education part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great students
    Flexible Schedules
    Easy to Pickup
    Textbooks Provided
    Very Open Channel of Communication Between Employer and Employee

    Cons

    Hours are usually late, so more for single people
    Pay could definitely be better
    Tech is a bit slow, and the furniture is a tad uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Your energy often mirrors the energy of your employees. If you keep the environment positive and open, I think everyone should prosper!

    I have been working at C2 Education part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair pay for part-time tutoring. I started at 28$/hour. Many other tutoring locations were offering between 19-25$.
    Come in and work directly with the students with specific material. No need to plan complex lessons, however, there is room for your own lesson-plans.
    No need to find and travel to private students for tutoring. It's all taken care of. Management deals with parents for you.

    Cons

    Part-Time, may not always get the number of hours you would like.
    3:1 classroom setting can be challenging at first, but you get used to it.
    No benefits as it is a part-time position.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more in-class training for new teachers. Highly recommend someone sit down with them before and after their first couple of classes to guide them through blue books. Recommend providing extra 30 minutes admin before class and 15 after for new teachers' first week.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at C2 Education part-time

    Pros

    - Base pay begins at ~$20/hour and you can earn more depending on how many subjects you teach
    - Fairly easy job if you know your subjects
    - Low stress working with students because you have the materials you need to teach prepared by the company
    - Good job if you're just trying to make some extra money

    Cons

    - Minimum wage pay during training and for admin work
    - Profit-driven model of enrolling students & making parents feel like they need to purchase more hours for their children to succeed begins to feel soulless
    - Will not give full hours to teachers to avoid paying benefits/over-time
    - Students will be charged thousands of dollars for a package, but teachers will only receive a SMALL portion; begins to feel like students are overpaying for what you're teaching/teachers are being underpaid

    I have been working at C2 Education part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    • Friendly colleagues & management
    • Motivated students
    • Flexible schedule
    • Company has own curriculum, which is easy to learn (not including HW tutoring)

    Cons

    • Low pay
    • Hard to get hours (they require 3:1 student teacher ratio, which means teachers don't get hours if the center directors have adequately enrolled enough students)

    Advice to Management

    • Make a pathway for teachers to do other things, such as academic advising
    • Open spots when parents explicitly request a teacher

    I worked at C2 Education full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Meeting students and helping them advance in their education
    -Working with talent teachers/tutors
    -Textbook/workbooks/tests created are useful for tutoring
    -New centers get more bonuses in their first year of opening

    Cons

    -Everything is managed and basically created by the Center Director
    -Train on how to sell hour packages rather than other ways to help clients (parents, kids) for their future
    -Only 5 days PTO, work late 1PM-9PM or sometimes 10PM

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on other ways to help families with their education needs instead of just selling tutoring hours. For example, more college essay prep and more scholarship opportunities/methods.
