    I worked at Cardinal Scholars part-time (More than a year)

    flexible schedule, individual choice of workload (number of students).

    allow teachers to have more independent control when negotiating pay with individual clients.

    I have been working at Cardinal Scholars part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are a student or recent graduate looking to make extra pocket change, Cardinal Scholars may be the best. Tutoring companies are often disorganized, but CS has structure.

    Cons

    Cardinal Scholars is still subject to the problems that befall tutoring companies, such as poor communication with supervisors, problems with payment processing between tutor and client, etc.

    Advice to Management

    The company should focus more on communication issues, such as those between the tutor and company management as well as payment processing.

    I worked at Cardinal Scholars (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pays well, easy to schedule and manage students

    The admins pressure students to take on more hours tutoring, even though promising to respect hour caps.

    Pros

    Get to make your own hours. Basically work for yourself, they set you up with clients and you handle the rest. You get out what you put in, can be very rewarding if you are passionate about teaching.

    Cons

    Never met anyone at Cardinal Scholars in person. Skype interview, submitted lesson summaries after every lesson online. Very remote, could be a pro.

    Advice to Management

    Good brand, but I did not feel a strong connection to the company. Try to meet more face to face.
