Tutor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 2, 2017
It was a rewarding job tutoring elementary school students and I learned how much one on one attention boosts learning. It was so good to see students make progress and to help make learning fun. I enjoyed tutoring in the home and tutoring at the local library. There were lesson plans accessible through academic websites that were fun and very effective learning exercises. It was not to hard to complete academic reports on the Academic Advantage website but it was time consuming.
Selecting student goals, helping students learn, coaching students, meeting parents and discussing student progress, working 4 hours a day
Working between 3 pm and 7 pm weekdays, and limited hours.
In-Home Tutor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 13, 2018
This was a part time employment tutoring but I worked many hours and it was great. I was able to go into the homes and tutor with children that was so willing to study and I had the support of the parents, which made it that much easier for me.
Helping the students learn and get ahead of their studies.
Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II Home Tutor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – December 30, 2017
Getting a list of my students was awesome. I'd reach out to my students and set up a schedule to meet them regularly and assist them with their assignments. The most enjoyable part of the job was receiving their improved scores once our sessions had ended.
Student goals/state standards (Current Employee) – Woodland Hills, CA – August 21, 2017
Creating lessons to match the curriculum of LAUSD is not easy. I research the set goals of the academic year and match that to the students I see each day. This job gave laptops to those children that completed the set amount of hours tutoring with me, and that was all the children and families really cared about. The learning came secondary and I often was left waiting outside undesirable neighborhoods as the children forgot about the lesson.

As an Independent Contract Tutor in the English Language Arts for students whose schools did not meet the No Child Left Behind standards, the first cuple of years of working with the company was great, in terms of, job work/life balance and compensation. By year 3, after the Los Angeles Unified District was able to cancel their contract with the company; jobs became scarce and working with this company became very difficult.
Tutor (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – August 3, 2016
Academic Advantage is an inspiration for students. As a tutor, the independence in constructing lesson plans showed whether teaching methods were effective or not. The position made a difference when there was test improvement.
Math Tutor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 23, 2016
They said that they would match you with parents that had similar availability as you, which was a lie. It was very hard to keep every parent happy with the hours of availability. They make you make up your own lesson plans and you have to document everything. They find any way to deduct money from your check with errors on your report.
