    I worked at Tutoring Club part-time

    Pros

    The pay is good, but that's about it.

    Cons

    I am only speaking for the Tutoring Club in Birmingham, AL, so I do not know how the other one are. I have worked many part time jobs in the past couple years while I am in college, but this has by far been the worst experience. I also have prior experience in tutoring such as at Mathnasium. My worst complaint is of the owner/manager and her blatant disrespect for the students. During my training she talked poorly of the students saying one boy "acts and looks autistic because he does math in his head before I'm done teaching him." That comment almost made me quit before I even began. She obviously does not care about the students and their success, but seems to only be in this to make money. She also talked poorly in front of students saying things like "They have no idea what they are doing," in a very demeaning tone. One of the students I was working with even complained to me about how she has been forced to do the same coursework for the last two years which showed since she completed all the work within about 20 minutes. At Mathnasium if that happens you tell the manager and she would give the student more challenging work but that was not the case here, because again she just did not care and it showed. She also advised me to not even go over all the problems they missed that it really did not matter and just rushed me to give them more worksheets. The other employees were also not helpful at all. At Mathnasium all tutors were there to help each other and the manager made that a point to us because of course when you are of college age or older there will be some concepts you simply don't remember from years ago that you learned in middle school. If you did not know something you were advised to ask another tutor if they could help when they were not busy because at Mathnasium at the end of the day the student's success was most important. However, at Tutoring Club when I forgot a minor concept in Geometry and asked another employee for help she was extremely rude and not willing to help at all, and in the end the student was the one that got hurt. So, if you care about students and their success do not work here. Also,

    Advice to Management

    Try to care more about the students.

    I have been working at Tutoring Club part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Part time hours leave the evening and morning open if you're a night owl you won't be effected by early mornings.

    Cons

    No insurance or health benefits since it's impossible to become full-time without being a director of a center.

    Advice to Management

    Employees deserve recognition and to feel individually acknowledged and empowered.

    Pros

    Great way to keep up the fundamentals of your mathematics while also making some money at the same time. Very easy to work with and are lenient with schedules. It's also great to help out those that need it and are wanting to learn more.

    Cons

    Sometimes the kids can be a little difficult to manage and they can sometimes get a little out of hand. Most of the time they're all great though!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and keep up the great work. Everyone here is friendly and nice and great to work with!

    I worked at Tutoring Club part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved working the kids. I greatly appreciated the fact that I was allowed to work with my student to find his/her pace rather than being given a curriculum and being forced to shove it all down a students throat. The purpose of Tutoring Club is to tutor it's students first up to where they should be then beyond, and while working there I was given the chance to do just that.

    Cons

    Low hours, due to the fact that the majority of students aren't available until the late afternoon when school is out and their parents are off of work.

    Advice to Management

    Offer weekend sessions. My paycheck went up quite a bit when our center offered weekends, but I got the impression that weekend sessions weren't something that many centers offered.

    Pros

    Great wages and great people to work for. I love the benefits and all the people I get to work with. It is a great company for bright intelligent people.

    Cons

    You cannot be late to work because they depend on you. I know this should be standard to everyone but being a little late is a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job I love the way you have handled it so far just keep doing that.

  8. "Dishonest and Unprofessional"

    I have been working at Tutoring Club part-time

    Pros

    Staff was friendly and nice to work with. Pay per hour is better than most comparable jobs.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional work environment. Special needs children are stuck in the system with all the other children even though they need more attention than the other students. Tutors that are untrained to deal with special needs children suddenly become responsible for them which is unfair to both the student and the tutor.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest and upfront with the tutors you hire and with the parents of the children that attend Tutoring Club.
