"Not enough money for independent contracting"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Sets you up with clients

Automated payment system easy to use

Good if you like working with kids

Cons

Gives you no training or prep materials (the online prep materials submitted by tutors are a joke)--you are an independent contractor

Pays only for time spent tutoring, not for commute or prep time ($20 an hour starts looking a lot closer to minimum wage--possibly less if you factor in gas prices)

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Varsity Tutors part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Varsity Tutors is a very easy to work with company. They are willing to help you as much as they can, and have a decent enough salary.

    Cons

    I have spent several months with no work from Varsity Tutors. Obviously during the summer and winter holiday seasons there aren't going to be hours, and I plan accordingly for that, but I went an entire semester without having a single student.

    Advice to Management

    I can hustle my own students for substantially more money, and I do because I'm not getting enough hours. I would recommend that there be some kind of active recruiting of students.

    I have been working at Varsity Tutors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I cannot say enough good things about this company! Working from home is amazing, as is having a whole company at your fingertips via Skype! I genuinely enjoy what I do and the people that I work with.

    Cons

    It is really hard to come up with any! Allowing yourself to disconnect from work is the biggest challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
