    Pros

    Flexible hours and days off as long as you put in sufficient notice. Never a dull moment, kids can be fun to work with. Curriculum is highly structured and effective, so as long as you follow the Mathnasium method there's no pressure on you to change it up. The work can be fulfilling and interesting if you are motivated, and it definitely keeps your math skills sharp. Staff are typically college-aged and are friendly. Online and in person training for people with no teaching experience (but you have to learn any gaps in your math abilities on your own time) On the whole, I think it's a great gig for intelligent high school or college students (you only need an A in pre-calc to qualify as an instructor), but it's not great for college grads that need money, hours, and a career stepping stone. You will learn a lot of how to deal with people though, because kids demand a lot of attention and empathy.

    Cons

    Hours and pay are low. If you work there 'full time' you get AT MOST ~32 hours a week and the salaries for instructors rarely exceed $13/hour. No benefits since your clocked in hours never exceed 35 a week. Be prepared to deal with difficult kids and parents. Like I said, never a dull moment. No pay compensation for work outside of hours (such as studying material for a difficult AP student session) Depending on the center (Cary, Brier Creek, Lead Mine) there can be a tenancy of micro-managing or hardly any management at all. You have to actively seek out performance reviews, if you're doing something wrong management will likely only report it to their owner at the EOD rather than tell you how to correct the behavior first. This isn't true of all managers and all centers, but it does happen.

    Not that good of a job

    Pros

    1.) You have a lot of free time since hours are low. Good if you are a student or have other demands in your life. 2.) Allows you to refresh on math topics while teaching children making you stronger in math.

    Cons

    1.) Cannot make a living from working here. I work less than 8 hours a week in total. 2). Owner can be very mean, cheap, and stingy. Owner wanted me to be a faster tutor and tutor as many kids as possible while I was working. As a result, no time to relax. 3.) Owner cuts your hours and tells you to leave as soon as the number of kids decrease before closing. Owner only keeps the lowest amount of instructors on the floor as possible to maximize profits for themselves. 4.) Owner constantly pressures you to work faster and harder even though the pay is excruciatingly low. Too much criticism.

    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.

    Great Place to Work

    Pros

    Super fun and fulfilling place to work at. Depending on your management, can be overwhelmed with a lot of tasks and difficult to adjust to at first. However, great place to get leadership, management, and sales experience. Pay was also great; $18 starting and raised to $20 by the end of the year.

    Cons

    Management can be tough sometimes
