    Pros

    Good balance of independence and support for part-time instructors. Expert curriculum and training, smooth logistics. Communication with staff and other instructors is prompt, friendly, helpful, and professional.

    Cons

    Hours can be inconsistent/seasonal, but that's the cycle of the business.

    Pros

    Solid training program and course curriculum. It's easy to follow to teach a class, even if there's subjects that aren't your strong points (like trigonometry, for me). Well paying for a part-time ad hoc type job.

    Cons

    Infrequent work, ebbs and flows (suddenly a lot, then none for months).

    Industry Leader Has Wonderful Atmosphere, Good People But Narrow Opportunities Within My Field.

    Pros

    PowerScore is a small company where strong relationships with colleagues can develop. A continous striving for industry excellence is the hallmark. Creativity is nurtured & encouraged here and lives/activities outside the job are supported both morally and actually. Pay is above average, especially in the south.

    Cons

    Small company with many young, unmarried members also means certain benefits like insurance are expensive for dependants with coverage more aligned with a young, healthy and dependant free (or otherwise covered) population. While starting pay is good, the payraises are minimal, cost of living and promotion opportunities are also minimal; in other words, the job your hired for, you'll like do for the duration of your employment.

    Pros

    The people in the office are great and the plans and outlines that you get for lesson plans are great. Everyone is very knowledgeable and eager to help both the instructors and the customers.

    Cons

    Sometimes a lot of time passes between teaching opportunities - but this is hardly their fault. Some of their website is outdated and they could use some new payroll/HR software

    Pros

    The student review books are helpful for the SAT and ACT. We were also given a useful teacher's edition as well. I was given opportunities to tutor, but didn't have to do so. The company gave me the chance to teach high school students. I had teaching experience with college student, but had never taught younger students.

    Cons

    I have no negatives to report.

    Pros

    Everything has been very easy. They have answered any questions I have had before I even asked them. When I was just starting, I felt very supported. Even though it is a contract job, they keep in touch. They also provide all needed materials, or reimburse in case something goes wrong.

    Cons

    It's not as often as I would like.
