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

    Pros

    The process you have to follow for each student really works. I could definitely see the improvement from week to week in the students. The students were a joy to work with and my boss was fantastic!

    Cons

    I don't think there were any downsides. I just wish I could be a full-time tutor so the only downside is that you cannot make a career out of this job unless you owe a Mathnasium
