Great management
Assistant Center Director (Current Employee) –  Bowie, MDApril 8, 2016
Just started this job but I was told how the typical day would be. A typical day at work is pretty busy. Come in and print out schedule, send and check emails. Call parents to inform them of and/or collect payments. Complete any other administrative work that needs to be done. Inform parents or guardians if asked of our program and what it entails. Set up diagnostic testing if need be.

Dynamic working environment
Customer Service, Sales and Marketing (Former Employee) –  Washington StateAugust 10, 2016
Great learning experience cause the amount of work and dedication required. But it will destroy your balanced life. Pressure to sell, a lot of micromanaging, customer service is constant.
Pros
Healthcare, Visa sponsorship
Cons
No break, random working hours

Good luck finding time for a life
Fomer Employee (Former Employee) –  Mid Atlantic areaAugust 12, 2016
After a number of years working within a school environment, I thought this would be a good choice. I made a point of asking management about the work life balance before signing. That's been fixed, they said. Training was online and with additional "assignments" - ok, except the information in the training manual and online was either incorrect or was grammatically and stylistically wrong. I was told upfront by an employee that there was an expectation about making budget over having a personal life. The kids were focused and seemed to get lots out of the tutoring, but the cost was incredible - parents who complained about the cost were supposed to be asked who else in the family might be able to help them pay the upfront tuition. Unless you thrive on stress and are gung-ho on the total sales environment, look elsewhere. BTW if you take the job and start earning incentives, you will have to pay back those incentives if you leave before a year is up.
Pros
Helping kids further their abilities
Cons
Stress, stress and more stress

Poor Compensation and Does Not Value Employees
Curriculum Developer and Tutor (Former Employee) –  Walnut Creek, CASeptember 8, 2015
This company is awful at utilizing their employees' expertise and providing any value to employment. The corporate management team is worse. Managers often breach contracts and ask employees to sacrifice income and shifts because they are disorganized and created problems for the clients. If you are serious about teaching/tutoring, this is not a good place to work.

Great Pay; Variable Management; Entirely Unpredictable Hours
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Yorba Linda, CAOctober 25, 2015
As above. Pay is good for part time work. Most managers at the locations are competent and good-natured, with minor exceptions. Main concern is the variable nature of the hours.

Average work place
Program Director Assistant (Former Employee) –  Stockbridge, GAJuly 18, 2015
Customer service is constant. Not a job for those with poor social skills. The environment is very comforting. Employees are motivated and efficient. Job requires constant talking and knowledge of the company with the most significance in detail posible.
Pros

Cons
constant talking

Friendly working environment
Assistant Director (Current Employee) –  Danville, CAFebruary 1, 2014
The assistant director position requires the ability to work with students. This tutoring facility provides a friendly environment for students to learn as well as interact with the tutors and staff. The staff are not only there to assist them with their schedules but to build relationships and encourage them.
This position has helped me build my confidence in every work I'm given as well as learning new skills working with different data entry programs. Sometimes it gets difficult when figuring out a hectic, busy schedule for many different students but I enjoy coming in every day to meet and interact with my colleagues and students.

Engaging education center for experience educators
Mathematics and Science Teacher (Current Employee) –  Naperville, ILJune 29, 2012
The education centers provides a unique structure and environment in which to educate students K-12. The structure of the standard curriculum definitely provides a comprehensive package in which to teach the necessary skills for test preparation. The most challenging part of the job is being sure that each student is being engaged at their appropriate academic level as well as ensuring all student and parental goals are being achieved.
Pros
flexible schedule, pleasent environment, excelent and accommidating managment
Cons
no benefits, lack of advancement opportunities

Rewarding
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Closter, NJMay 2, 2012
A rewarding job where you get to teach various ages of children in different subjects. It helps that you are qualified to teach different things as this is directly related to the number of hours you will be able to get (part time). My co-workers are good people and the management is very helpful. The hardest part is keeping each student working simultaneously for a 2 hour class, especially because they come to C2 after normal school hours.

Nice place to work with rewarding outcomes but a frustrating lack of advancement opportunities
Teacher, English and humanities (Current Employee) –  Middlesex county, New JerseyDecember 8, 2012
C2 is generally a fun and rewarding place to work. Center directors are engaged and helpful and you develop a close rapport with your students. Schedules are flexible and the pay is good, provided you can get enough hours. However, there is very little opportunity for advances, no bonus/raise structure, and getting enough hours can be difficult. The more subjects you can teach the better. All in all this has been a positive experience but it won't pay the bills forever. C2 (and tutoring in general) is probably best as a side job for additional money.
Pros
flexible, rewarding, often fun and productive, good pay
Cons
occasionally inconsistent hours, lack of advancement opportunities

I'm not sure how this place is still open.
Tutor (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJanuary 25, 2013
Organization is lackluster, and there are far more teachers than there are hours, so expect to fight over the few that come up like starving dogs. Management is minimal, so if you haven't arrived with teaching experience, expect to do a lot of your own research.
Pros
pay is ok
Cons
lax management, very meager hours, poor organization

Personally Rewarding Experience
Teacher (Current Employee) –  ParsippanyOctober 13, 2012
Challenging but rewarding experience (love seeing the long-term results my students get!) working with multiple students of various levels and subjects. Curriculum allows for a lot of flexibility in the way you can teach a student, while at the same time providing enough structure to allow for a clear plan. Management and fellow staff are friendly and all really bright. Since it's strongly emphasized that we constantly engage students one-on-one, the hardest part of the job is keeping track of multiple students at the same time, making sure to balance the needs of each while not neglecting others. Training was very thorough and helpful. The company's teaching philosophy & approach (very holistic) is what I like the most: to create independent life-long learners.
Pros
flexible scheduling, competitive pay, consistent hours, low student-teacher ratio
Cons
have to take a full-length sat to qualify

C2 Education
Program Director (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 27, 2015
At C2, a typical day includes just about anything you can imagine. Some days you will be cleaning desks, unclogging toilets. Other days you will be managing student schedules. Most days, depending on your role, you will be doing everything possible in running a successful center such as scheduling, office duties, financial data entry, student management (making sure every student is doing well in school, improving their test scores, getting their service hours done), and going into meetings a few times a day. Some days, the company requires overtime work (no overtime pay) for district meetings. The most enjoyable part of this job is the improving scores of students. Students genuinely are content with the outcome of their scores. Upper management varies. District managers are sometimes fatigued due to the work they're doing for Regional Managers, COO, CEO, etc. There is not a set time for a meal break but there are times when the center is slower and you are able to eat then. The hours are 1:00 - 9:30 for most centers but it's really draining if upper management requests you to open every single day for a POSSIBILITY of drawing a new lead. On a regular basis, you can expect to work 40 - 60 hours and go home with parent concerns, emails, student concerns on your mind.
