  1. "Overall Great Company"

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Nurturing Wisdom part-time

    Pros

    Communication is good and the people in higher-up positions are timely to respond and helpful. Get to almost choose your own hours (based on families' schedules) and pay is good.

    Cons

    Schedule isn't consistent, no guarantee on hours, parents/families can be the biggest deterrent as with any job involving children.

    I worked at Nurturing Wisdom part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom to work for yourself and build your own schedule.

    Cons

    However, there is very little supervision or communication through the company about goals or help when things go wrong.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Nurturing Wisdom part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Helpful orientation & training for any content or strategies you're unfamiliar with. Very kind and considerate supervisors who support you, the tutor, before demanding parents. Many admins are/were once tutors so they understand the struggles and have just about seen it all. Can work with some really nice, dedicated kids who continue to work hard even through difficult material. *This is most likely to be the case with students preparing for standardized tests.* Working with a great family totally makes the experience. Relaxed part-time schedule good for near-full-time income if you have the open schedule, or just some additional income if you don't.

    Cons

    Families can be demanding. This is definitely not a knock on the company; just as a tutoring service, you're bound to encounter parents who become frustrated/impatient if their student isn't improving as quickly as they would like. I recommend establishing early on that YOU are the professional and YOU know how to improve student success.

    I have been working at Nurturing Wisdom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone on staff (right up to the owners!) is incredibly warm and accessible. The hierarchal feeling of traditional companies is completely absent here. Instead, there's a sense that everyone is just collaborating to get things done, which is fantastic!

    Cons

    A con that's really a pro (depending on your fit with the company) is that NW is really really big on communication. You need to be able to express yourself well (and frequently!) since the staff has such limited face-to-face time, and most communication is done via email.

    I have been working at Nurturing Wisdom part-time

    Pros

    Tons of Support-I never felt like I was left to fend for myself. If I was unsure of something I would get a thorough explanation very promptly Flexible Hours

    Cons

    Some families can be difficult to work with, but that's par for the course for any teaching or service-related job
