    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers part-time

    Pros

    Very rewarding to work with children and see the benefits of the work you are helping them with.

    Cons

    Sometimes the kids struggled and it was difficult to not take it personally and feel as though I was failing in helping them.

    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's as good a tutoring environment as any, as far as day-to-day contact with students goes. You have a good degree of autonomy with how exactly you tutor.

    Cons

    The center closed after COVID hit. A few weeks later, they started me on very reduced hours over Zoom. After a month, they phased out my hours, giving me vague answers when I asked about being put back on the schedule, quietly disabled my login, and dropped contact without ever having the balls to formally lay me off. Through all of this, (until they stopped sending me schedules) I could see that the other tutors were still getting 20 hours a week. There were also massive pay discrepancies. They brought me on at 18$/hr while another tutor who had been there for years was making far less, and with similar education. They have mandatory training for which they do not pay, which is illegal, and they hide this fact from you for as long as possible. I also had to bug them to correct my paycheck after the first month, as they had given me less than we agreed in the interview. They also will, at the last minute, have you tutoring subjects in which you have no experience or expertise, which I'm sure is not what the parents are paying for.
