    Pros

    A very rewarding experience to work with young students.

    Could be challenging working with multiple students in the beginning but you get used to it very fast, so not really a con.

    Pros

    Individually owned centers allow you to gain a close relationship with your owner and co-workers. This creates a laid-back and welcoming environment for both instructors and students. The curriculum is great and the company values

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for full-time work with benefits - however it is a great job for college students!

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

    Pros

    The company environment allowed for lots or personal freedom, which I appreciated as a student.

    Cons

    The company relies on inexperienced, young adults to teach children math principles. Many of those who are hired do not have any experience in teaching or tutoring activities, which leads to a steep uphill learning curve for young employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced workers

    I have been working at Mathnasium part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's usually a relaxed environment. Focusing strictly on math ranging from kindergarten to high school calculus and statistics. Ever so often adults will come needing help studying for a math related exam (like praxis, gmat, etc). You just need to make sure you're on top of your math skills and work well with others. Be able to explain math concepts in multiple different ways.

    Cons

    Some kids can be rowdy, calming them down or asking them to work can be a hassle. Some can be extremely quiet and never ask a question but in reality they need help, so kind of have to check-up on them every 10 minutes to make sure they're understanding their work and not feeling lost. (I don't consider these cons I'm just making you aware in case YOU don't like dealing with kids like these)

    Advice to Management

    Nothing crazy, but it's usually run by husband and wife (at least the one I worked at was) but they are extremely nice and professional. Always reasonable and understanding.
