    Pros

    Friendly work environment. Fun teaching kids. Flexible Hours. Works well with school. Can pick up outside tutoring jobs for other subjects which pay really well (starting is $20 per hour and you often get paid more)

    Cons

    The Job can sometimes be stressful.

    Low Pay / Easy Work

    Pros

    -Nice Work Environment (depending on your boss, which varies from center to center) -Easy Work: you teach/tutor students K-12th grade in math, which is pretty easy and fun (doesn't feel like work).

    Cons

    -Low pay for instructors (compared to how much money the students pay) -Small amount of hours (the center's are opened for no more than 20 hours a week, which means you can only be a part-time employee) -Dealing with extremely young children (some parents treat Mathnasium like a day-care and drop off their annoying/disruptive kids for two hours, when the students really should only be there for one hour) -No real room for growth unless you want to open up and run your own Mathnasium franchise. -No benefits.

    Temporary job for everyone.

    Pros

    Convenient job for students. Interesting place to observe childhood learning process. Low effort during non peak hours. Good if you like kids.

    Cons

    Dead end job with dead end pay and (probably less than 20 an hour) 'codirectors' being childish. One of the co-directors never cleaned up, never changed to uniform when the owner wasnt there, and plays games at the center. I asked. And he said no to cleaning and to changing. If the female codirector saw me sitting down looking around the room waiting for kids who needed help, she'd tell me to clean the tables sometimes with a side of hostility. Of course, she wouldn't tell the other co director to clean. Never ever have I seen her ask him to. Ive asked one codirector to get to another kid's question from across the room because they're closer and I'm helping a kid here, and you could see it in their face they hated that I simply asked them to. I also just didnt agree with the methodology of teaching kids, and I guess it bothered me. It seemed very hit or miss depending on the kid. There was WAY too much hand-holding. Success was attributed to the center sometimes when it very clearly wasn't. With 12 an hour and no self respect, it's better you start your own tutoring business.

    Great place to work as a tutor

    Pros

    A great and fun place to work at if you enjoy working with kids. Mathnasium has it's own tutoring formula which you will receive plenty of training on. It's very easy to learn and helps organize the tutoring so that you do not have to come up with your own lesson plans. Mathnasium is a casual work environment and has a flexible work schedule (not the hours as much, but the days are flexible). Many kids that come to Mathnasium are very fun to teach, and you can even choose to play games with them as a reward for doing their work.

    Cons

    The pay is a little low at around $10.00 an hour for a tutoring job. However, the benefit is that you have a center to go to and lesson plans are made for you, so it's easier than being a private tutor. My only other complaint is that the training is a little lacking. You have to take a math test and score well to work here, so there's no need to train you in the math. But I would have liked to have more training in how to teach kids so they get it, since Mathnasium requires no prior tutoring experience, and I had none. Also some training in working with difficult kids would be helpful, though you can always ask your coworkers for help with that.

    Pros

    The pros for working at Mathnasium are many and excellent but hard too remember.

    Cons

    I looked at jobs at the teaching center Mathnasium (two different locations). The salary is $12 per hour with a possible promotion to $14 per hour. Moreover, the salary during the first month of 'training' is only $10 per hour. Bagging groceries at Trader Joe is lucrative by comparison!
