Pros

Ok pay if you teach English.

Cons

Math tutors are very underpaid. Management only cares for how many students you can handle at a time. Often times they had me working with too many students so naturally the quality of my work would decline. They care more about getting the students in and out than they do about making the students learn something

Advice to Management

Bring Brighter Future back to what it used to be which was helping the students LEARN. Not just a way for you to fill your pockets with money so you can drive around with a Porsche.

    I worked at Brighter Future Learning full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The students are wonderful for the most part, and they will improve as much as you are capable of helping them. The coworkers and the ownership are all incredibly kind and fun to work with. Definitely a job that will give you back in satisfaction what you put into it (this cuts both ways). Most of the material is intellectually engaging. Management works extremely hard and leads by example. If you work rigorously, teaching the material will cement your mastery of the English language and build those skills quickly.

    Cons

    It's a smaller operation, and as such it's staffed to operate at the brink of exploding (I assume because the margins are likely very small). As such, there is implicit pressure to work while under the weather and nobody really takes vacation days. There is almost never time for anything other than the bare essential tasks, so concepts like team building, collaboration, and brainstorming don't really exist. There seems to be extreme pressure from parents to management, and sometimes certain business pressures seem to take precedence over honestly evaluating students (withholding either warranted praise or warranted criticism). Most of the disciplinary power held over the students is a bluff/facade because grades are not given out that ultimately matter, and keeping the kids/parents happy is of the utmost importance. Upward mobility doesn't seem to be there, and those serious about teaching as a career are likely better off pursuing a credential or postgraduate degree eventually.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to criticize employees in open channels for quite so many mistakes. It is natural for people to err, and not every failing needs to be public knowledge. This is both uncomfortable for the employee who made the mistake and those who see how these situations are sometimes handled.
