    Pros

    Really good pay. It’s a good experience and I really enjoy teaching the kids. Good time.

    Cons

    Some of the requirements are a little obsessive. Taking 4 pictures of each kid a day, parent emails and phone calls are super annoying and obsessive but it is what it is.

    Lots of work, poor conditions

    Mar 21, 2021 - Instructor in Acton, MA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get a lot of independence in teaching students. Seeing students develop is rewarding.

    Cons

    Some work conditions are pretty bad. I worked in the summer, and there was no air conditioning. The pay for new instructors is low, perhaps below minimum wage if you account for the work they give you outside the classroom (communicating with parents, designing curriculum).

    Lumos Debate Response

    Founder & CEO

    Thanks for the key info! I'm glad to say that as of 2021, the instructor pay bracket has been adjusted upward for new instructors to make sure compensation is equitable and fair when taking into account outside-of-class hours— that said, if you still see issues with the pay bracket I'd still encourage you to make sure to reach out to your manager so we can continue to make adjustments. In regards to AC malfunctioning, I'm very sorry to hear about that! I take personal responsibility for this issue. In 2019, I was responsible setting up the portable AC units in each of our classrooms, and it sounds like I did a poor job of making sure the units were all functioning properly. Will do better in the future. —Zeph CEO
