"Not enough money for independent contracting"

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)

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

    Pros

    I love working from home and the flexibility Varsity Tutors provides. Even though my co-workers are in different cities, we get along really well and everyone is a pleasure to work with. As the company continues to grow, it's great that the employees have the opportunity to contribute to ideas and the big picture. I feel that my opinion is valued and I am respected by my peers.

    Cons

    It's really hard to balance your work and personal life. It takes a lot of personal time management but it's not impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Please offer more professional development/training

    I really do not have anything bad to say, but it can be hard to "disconnect" sometimes.
