I worked at Varsity Tutors part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

One-on-one sessions, flexible schedule, good hourly pay, most of the students are wonderful and enthusiastic, management is easy to reach and usually very helpful, interview was informal an enjoyable

Cons

Hard to move up, not a lot of hours per week, paid once monthly, categorized as an independent contractor for tax purposes so you owe all of your taxes at the end of the year, some students are far from your house, but you can get distance pay

Advice to Management

Don't categorize tutors as independent contractors. It's a cheap way for the company to keep costs down, but it can be unnecessarily problematic for tutors at the end of the year.

    I worked at Varsity Tutors as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had ample clients to choose from; never felt like I was being ignored by management. I enjoyed my clients and the staff was very responsive to my needs.

    Cons

    The salary, even at the highest end of the band, is far below market. Don't be afraid to push for higher rates, especially if you have a unique field of expertise, but be aware that you really won't be getting close to what other companies are able to offer. Additionally, your paycheck only comes once a month, which can be rather annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Try to coordinate amongst the Varsity representatives in a more clear way.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Nothing good really, I only worked for them for a week

    Cons

    They charge students $80 an hour while paying me only $20? Plus I still have to handle my own taxes and enjoys no benefit! I suggest peal to look else where
