    I worked at Club Z! Tutoring full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a part-time tutoring job. Very flexible schedule. You generally get to approve your own clients (you don't have to take all of them). Get to do tutoring work without having to drum up your own clients and without having to pester the mom or dad about getting paid

    Cons

    Not much career advancement potential. 90+% afterrnoon and evenings hours. I only ever got one daytime client through Club Z!. Still have to deal with moms/dads that can set unrealistic expectations (the local AD can help buffer this for you though)

    Advice to Management

    Better pay would have been nice. Better billing system for tutors to get paid.

    Pros

    Working with students one-on-one allows you to form a strong working relationship. You develop a strong understanding of the basics of your subject as you develop strategies to communicate to students. Tutoring is done in the home or in a public place, which may encourage you to check out different parts of town. You work for a local franchise owner, not directly for the company.

    Cons

    The work is seasonal, in the afternoon or evening, and you have to travel to the students. The compensation is enough to supplement your income. There's no prospect for advancement except for incremental increases in pay as experience and expertise increase.

    Advice to Management

    Get a sense of how the franchises are run. I've worked for a past franchise owner in Lincoln, NE and the current franchise owners in Omaha, NE. The difference in quality of management is stark. Surveying the longstanding workers of local franchises might add color to the financial reporting franchises submit.

    I worked at Club Z! Tutoring part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Club Z has an innovative and helpful approach to connecting students and tutors. They also do a great job of matching you by availability and subject area/grade level interests, provided you have a good regional director, which I did, who cares about those under them. The pay was good as well, $22 hourly on average, and would go up for very specialized test prep areas. (This was in Washington state)

    Cons

    The difficulty with this position comes in having to travel without being paid for that, since you will need to be willing to travel significantly. Also, it is very difficult, as it is with any tutoring job, to get enough hours to make this a legitimate form of employment and to balance the appointments as needed to fill up your schedule. You also need to be skilled in a variety of areas, or you may not find much work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and consider giving incentives for travel so good tutors can be matched to needy students who are too far out to get to at the current rate of pay.
