    I have been working at Tutor Doctor part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The franchise owners vet the families and the students thoroughly. The students are very enthusiastic generally, so the work is satisfying and effective. It's really enjoyable to get to know young people and assist them with their studies.

    Cons

    It's difficult to work more than 10 hours/week because school schedules only leave time for tutoring in the evenings and on weekends. Also, the website used for scheduling and session reports is a little clunky.

    Advice to Management

    If the tutors could just text session reports to management, that would be great.

    Pros

    Close working relationship with the owner, and a very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    This a great place to work, but one of the only cons I can think of is you are paid monthly instead of every two weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! You are doing a great job.

  5. "Math and Science tutoring in the Portland OR area for TD"

      Current Employee - Tutor in Portland, OR
      Recommends

      I have been working at Tutor Doctor part-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      -Efficient, organized, supportive, timely, paperless processes -The Tutor Doctor staff have positive attitudes and are easily reachable -Tutoring environment is pre-approved by staff -Lots of opportunities to tutor all math levels.

      Cons

      -Fewer opportunities to tutor non-math subjects -Driving to different locations rather than driving to a single place (all within a 15 mi radius of either a work or home location though; has not been much of a con)

      Advice to Management

      None, doing a good job! I appreciate the efficiency of everything and making sure tutoring environments are safe!

      Pros

      Work ethic is valued,, flexible hours

      Cons

      There is a limited pay rate for the effort required, and the location requires a bit of travel. Also, work load kept to part time to limit provided benefits.

      I have been working at Tutor Doctor (Less than a year)

      Pros

      You don't have to find the tutees

      Cons

      Pay is horrible. I spent more time driving than tutoring, and travel expenses are not included at all. At $15/hr, after a 1 hr session subtracting gas, I make $4/hr.

      Advice to Management

      The independent contractor model makes sense for you, but it's a rotten deal for the people tutoring.

      Pros

      Very professional and quick to response. Pay is always on time.

      Cons

      My pay is less than what I imagined. I found out how much my students pay them and how much I make and I was saddened

      Advice to Management

      You need a way to pay us more. The going rate for individual tutors is between 60 and 80 an hour. I am getting 20. In the future I may just work for myself but I probably won’t. I am a regular teacher on sabbatical. The amount of prep time is crazy. I think it is my personality but their success means more to me than just an ego boost. I truly care about my students and want them to have learned more about life and themselves...
