    I have been working at Mathnasium part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with kids is fun. Watching as they "get it" and seeing them understand Math is encouraging. I feel like I'm making a difference. The curriculum is fantastic.

    Cons

    When the students don't participate, it's hard to make a difference. The student has to be trying - when they try, they learn.
    It doesn't pay enough to live off but It's a great part time job.
     I don't enjoy the down times, when there are no students and nothing to do.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Good teaching program. Kids are generally motivated and well-behaved. Can work with students at the math level you are proficient in.

    Cons

    Short hours (only open 4 hours per day, 5 days per week). Could be a pro or a con depending on what you are looking for. No benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Seems well managed.

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

    Pros

    The kids are fun to work with, and work hours for the most part are pretty flexible.

    Cons

    The place that I worked at didn't seem to be running sustainably, and worker morale decreased significantly at the time I was there. It got to the point where because it was mostly high schoolers, people were unwilling to apply and the rest of us ended up trying to compensate and it turned into a very stressful experience.
