    Flexible schedules, great team, great manager and center director

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

    Pros

    Generally flexible schedule and good workplace. Culture is laid-back while still allowing even part-time instructors the opportunity to make an impact on the education of students. No real issues while working there.

    Cons

    The nature of the tasks performed by instructors is generally quite repetitive but that is to be expected with this line of work.

    Pros

    get to work on a variety of topics, variety of experiences with different kids; have freedom to teach in your own style to an extent; boss cares about employees

    Cons

    kids can be difficult to work with sometimes, but hey, they're kids; you can get a raise eventually but there's not much room for growth after like 2 yrs

    Advice to Management

    none, I loved working at Mathnasium!

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

    Pros

    I worked at Mathnasium as an Instructor during high school. It pays decent and it's flexible with hours. It was a really great way for students to learn math. Plus, while we were there, we ate a lot of candy.

    Cons

    I'm sure your experience depends a lot on your location.
