Good place to work with students and get to know them
Mathematics Tutor (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – August 5, 2016
Working in tutoring is a really great job for students who are looking for a part time job for some supplementary income and work experience, the pay is okay and the hours are very good, they work around your schedule and are very lenient if you need to temporarily leave work for vacation or exams.
Your immediate supervisors are usually nice and well educated people (which is something you'll appreciate), you will enjoy working with them as it is similar to working with your professors.
The social life is great, sometimes students will talk to you about their careers and student life, making everything more fun and enjoyable. I met many people who come by the math center that we actually became really good friends.
Typically, you will be assisting students with homework problems. More often than not, they will ask you questions from take home tests and test corrections, you are not supposed to help them with those because it counts as cheating.
The job will really be stressful during midterms and finals weeks, as more students will be at the math center keeping you on your feet.
You will have to have a strong background in mathematics, most undergraduate students in STEM fields with a few math classes completed with A's or B's are usually well fit for the job, but don't feel discouraged if you are not a STEM student but are passionate about tutoring and mathematics.
Very flexible hours, decent pay
