Rewarding work, but little compensation or opportunity.
Instructor (Former Employee) – League City, TX – June 9, 2013
I worked at The Tutoring Center for six months, and while it was a good learning experience, I ultimately felt stifled. The most difficult part of my job was unruly kids, but they were also what made the job so rewarding. I could tangibly see that I was making a difference for the kids I worked with. However, there are definite drawbacks to the structure.
It's an after-school tutoring program only open Monday through Thursday, so at most a regular instructor can expect to work four hours a day, four days a week. 16 hours a week, at $9 an hour? This is not only not in any way a livable wage, but the work day (3-7pm) prevents you from taking on another job in either the day time or evening. There is little opportunity for advancement, as there is only one head instructor per center.
short work day, rewarding
not enough hours, low pay rate
