    I have been working at Varsity Tutors part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Varsity Tutors allows you the freedom of finding clients for you and handles all the back-end, including billing. They pay twice a week, so there's a constant influx of revenue. Their website handles scheduling.

    Cons

    Work can be seasonal and slows down during the holidays and summer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pay less for content tutoring than test prep.

    I have been working at Varsity Tutors part-time

    Pros

    Working with the students who are really assigned to you based off the certain criteria in which you would help them in, gives a sense of fulfillment to both the tutor and student.

    Cons

    varsity needs to advise the parents of students that the parents also play a huge role in the students academics. the parents always pressurizes the tutor

    Advice to Management

    to create 1 hour sessions for students who need the only on hour

    I have been working at Varsity Tutors full-time

    Pros

    I started working with varsity tutors with the intention of putting a little money in my pocket while putting myself through school. Little did I know that the earning potential was immense and I’d be working with the most awesome students possible. I get to set my own hours and manage my schedule however I want and the opportunities are endless. Best place I’ve ever worked for.

    Cons

    Literally nothing. Since I have such a high rating I get tons of opportunities so sometimes my schedule is full to the max, but other than that it’s great.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing.

    It allows me to work with students of all skill levels, all across the country.

    Pros

    VT has great benefits, a fun team of people, incredibly supportive managers, a fun atmosphere, and tons of perks. The kitchen is well-stocked, and every day is casual Friday. They *definitely* care about their employees.

    Cons

    The 4 or 5 day work week must include a Saturday or Sunday, and all the constant dials/customer calls can be a little overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! :)
