    Sometimes can be very busy, some kids can be very hard to work with, and some parents can be very difficult to talk to.

    Advice to Management

    take care of employees, talk about what to improve on, whats working, what isn't working. Spend time watching over employees to make sure they are on task.

    I worked at Mathnasium part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked here as a high school student and I can honestly say the job was the most flexible and least stressful I have ever had. I really enjoyed getting to know all of the kids and was genuinely sad to leave. Mathnasium is a great company and I would return in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    The pay was average, but not great. I was told that once I began tutoring full time I would receive a raise but never did.

    I worked at Mathnasium part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for part time high school and college students

    Flexible hours

    Looks good on College Apps

    Cons

    Teaching dumb kids can be frustrating.

    Potentially mentally exhausting depending on how many kids you deal with at a time.

    Various rules and procedures can appear redundant and irritating.

    While most parents are understanding and look for what's best for their kids, some treat it as a baby-sitting service, forcing you to balance between actual teaching and keeping down rowdy kids.

    I have been working at Mathnasium part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great hours, great pay, and some of the friendliest coworkers. The job is easy as long as your a kid friendly person yourself and are willing to work hard with the children of varying ages.

    Cons

    There are no cons here. Everything about this job glows in its own way. They gave me a chance to use my skills that I never thought I would use as much as I am today!
