  1. "Rewarding work"

    I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility with schedule; company is very understanding if you need to make a change
    Lots of good resources/teaching materials provided
    A reasonable amount of independence. You're expected to adhere to certain standards and goals, but you are also trusted to make decisions on a day-to-day basic according to your individual students' needs.

    Cons

    Well, let's face it: teachers just don't earn big bucks. I think the hourly pay for tutors here is fine, given that reality.
    There were times, particularly as a new tutor, when I felt a bit like I'd been thrown in the deep end. Sometimes, students had some unexpected problems or presented some special challenges, and I would worry that I wasn't giving them the kind of help they needed. I had to figure a lot of things out on my own. But I think that fits with the philosophy here - although you need to stick with certain basics about their program, you are also regarded as a skilled professional who can take the basics and run with them.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest doing a little more training and 1-on-1 sessions with teachers who are just starting. But I have noticed more of that happening with recent hires, which is definitely a step in the right direction.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, they do allow you to say exactly when you are available to work and won't schedule you when you don't want to work.

    Cons

    They require that you show up early to prep for sessions but DO NOT pay you for this time. If you stay after to finish up paperwork, again you are NOT paid for this time. They require that you take the ACT to become a tutor, the time for this is not paid. The training is not paid (6+ hours). Very stringent procedures must be followed during tutoring that don't really allow for appropriate learning or individualization of services. Hours may be canceled at the last minute. Sometimes you are scheduled for blocks of time with 1-2 hours in between. You have to either leave and come back or stay around for this time, but of course, it is not paid.
