    I have been working at Varsity Tutors for more than a year

    Pros

    The pros are that you get to work one on one with a student.

    Cons

    They do not take taxes out of your paycheck. So you really make a lot less per hour than you think. Also, it is a pyramid scheme. People get hired on to move up the ranks...but the work is not tutoring, it is dumb online filing with bosses that are too caught up in details that don't matter. Those who do stay as tutors have to drive, get no compensation and no benefits, while the people higher up are taking the profit margins for themselves. Varsity is just a cleverly disguised scam, in my opinion. Yes, it can help people, but mostly is hurting the tutors who help them get everything.
