    I have been working at Mathnasium full-time

    Pros

    Good experience for teaching and working with kids and staying on top of your math skills. The pay is good but there are only between 20-25 working hours per week at this job when doing full time. So can work here full time while going to school or having another job on the side.

    Cons

    Need a lot of patience to work with some of the kids who lack attention and respect.

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

    Pros

    It is very rewarding to see tutees improve and learn to love a subject that he/she never thought she was good at. Also working as an instructor helps you learn how to teach children in a way that they understand.

    Cons

    You work a lot more than what you are getting paid for. Although that also depends on the employee, teaching kids (or just teaching in general) is a draining work, and if management is very stingy with money, it is hard for employees to be motivated to work in such a draining environment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees the amount they deserve, especially if they have qualities that allows kids to grow and learn better. On top of that, if an employee has knowledge of more advanced mathematics, he/she must be compensated for tutoring high school/college students in those areas.
