      Low-quality tech., incompetent management, no advancement opportunities

      Pros

      The teaching rate is $35/hour.

      Cons

      The LiveOnline online classroom platform looks like it was built in the early 2010s. It's incredibly slow, full of bugs, and has limited functionality. Since you're spending at least 7.5 hours per week logged into this platform, its many shortcomings quickly get old. There is limited enjoyment to be found in talking to a group of 30 students who reply to your questions only via a chat feature. Management is slow and incompetent, from emails full of unprofessional formatting and typographical errors to scheduling inefficiencies. There are is no room for upward movement. You teach you first course at $35/hour and then you teach the rest of your courses at $35/hour. Maybe you can start doing some tutoring, but even then you're required to keep teaching.

      good for some money on the side

      Pros

      Depending on what city you're in (I've worked in Maryland, DC, Virginia and California- LA area), there are always classes within a short drive. I wouldn't recommend this as a full time job, but while I was in graduate school it was a great way to make a bit more pocket money over the summer. Also, once you get accepted as a tutor they train you to use their books and everything so it really isn't that much work once you get that part down (although I will say it is tedious).

      Cons

      Most of the classes you teach are 3 hrs long. The kids are paying an insane amount of money to be there and you're getting only a small small fraction of that. There was a point where I was teaching a class of 25 students, each paying well over $1,000 to be there and I was getting less than 0.001% of that (I genuinely did the math). The only thing that makes this redeemable is that if you don't know an area well or don't have a network of families to start doing SAT tutoring yourself, Princeton review basically allows you to read from a book, slap their name on it and go. It definitely is a thing where you're paying to not have to think about anything except how you're going to get lunch and dinner between the three classes you're teaching during the day.

      Pros

      Plenty of flexibility, most hours were at the beginning of each semester

      Cons

      You're treated like cheap college labor, and when they got bought out by a multinational conglomerate, they did not even inform the campus ambassadors. We had to find out because some of us had student profiles on the website.
