    I have been working at Institute of Reading Development part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, easy to request time off, solid training, work from home, the only item I needed to purchase (besides computer and internet) was a quality head set/microphone, you reap what you sow, if you do well it opens doors for additional projects and extended employment, supervisors are readily available to discuss concerns, friendly and supportive staff, very fair pay schedule, free classes earned for self and one family member, ability to help children who are struggling to succeed and provide a challenge for the advanced students, variety of programs (especially the self-paced program for students who are years behind in reading).

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Institute of Reading Development full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Personally, I loved working for IRD. Their employees were exceptionally friendly, and I found that all my answers and problems were solved quickly. This is extremely important as teaching days can be hectic. My summer flew by but I received many smiles, hugs, and fist bumps which made the stress worth it. If you have a passion for teaching and want experience in the classroom, this is a great job.

    Cons

    There may be a lot of driving involved, which can be stressful. I drove over an hour every teaching day; however, I was compensated after the 45 min. mark. I would have preferred to drive less and that was the worst part of the job for me.

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoyed my time with the Institute of Reading Development. In my experience, the management does a great job of caring for its teachers and therefore its students. I only wish I could have stayed on longer!

    Actual pay and working hours were somewhat unpredictable as it depended on which classes filled up.
