    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Great Students
    Fast hiring process

    Cons

    -They would like you to notify the company two weeks in advance if you are unable to continue with an assignment. If not they will deduct 4 hours from your pay. Basically, they won't pay you for the work you ALREADY completed.

    Most sessions are only an hour long, so if you did a supervisor a favor and drove an hr to a student only to tutor for an hr, you better not have an emergency-- or else they won't pay you.

    -Lower pay than most agencies
    -Far assignments

    Advice to Management

    People have emergencies! do not hold back 4 hours of pay when your tutors run into one. In the real world people pay others for the work they have done.

    Pros

    Allows tutors the flexibility to determine own schedule with customers and session reports are simple to summarize. Company does great job at communication via email.

    Company is still growing so opportunities are limited. Be nice to have workshop platform so Tutors can work 3-4 hours at a time.

    "Tutor Doctor Houston"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Math Tutor in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Math Tutor in Houston, TX

    Pros

    I tutor math and they placed me almost immediately with a student in my area. The rate was $22 per hr, and they offered more for a student outside my area. The good thing is the tutoring sessions are 1 1/2 hours long so it is worth the travel time.

    Cons

    I don't have any students currently. I would like more students each week.
