    I have been working at Nurturing Wisdom full-time for more than 2 years

    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.

      "A company of educators"

      Former Employee - Tutor in Chicago, IL
      Recommends

      I worked at Nurturing Wisdom part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I worked for Nurturing Wisdom for a year, and I only left because I moved away. This company is fantastic. What first struck me was that everyone in NW has been a tutor themselves at some point. I've worked for schools and companies before in which this was not the case, and it was certainly frustrating then to have bosses who didn't understand what it's like to teach, or even what teaching requires logistically. ...

      Cons

      Naturally, some families and students can be difficult, but this is a part of teaching. NW always works with you to alleviate such situations.

      I worked at Nurturing Wisdom for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I literally have not had one negative experience while with Nurturing Wisdom the last 3 years, which like never happens with any job ever! Everybody from the president, Pari, to the tutoring directors and coaches were supportive, knowledgeable, and flexible. All of the families and students that I worked with were very nice to work with. It is a rewarding, well-paying part-time job for anybody who likes helping kids!!

      Cons

      Some students/parents can be a little difficult to schedule/work with, but that is the life of a tutor, and NW is extremely helpful and supportive in managing those situations.

      I worked at Nurturing Wisdom part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Pays well, flexible schedule, provides many resources and training programs.

      Cons

      Sometimes it takes a while to be paired with your first couple of students.

      Advice to Management

      Make sure new tutors are told to expect a bit of a dead space between their hiring and first students, and warn them that there are many orientation loops to jump through after the preliminary one.
