Good for college students, underpaid
Mathematics Tutor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 2, 2016
Starting off, this job seems like a good fit. It's relatively easy to do and you get a couple of dollars here and there. However, this is an INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR job. That means that you have to pay your own taxes on everything that you get, you have no benefits AT ALL and you're NOT THEIR EMPLOYEE. They don't train you and you have to provide all materials, drive your own car, and buy gas.
I received $18/hr for in person tutoring and $15/hr for online tutoring.In the month that I made $800, I put 1000 miles on my car just from driving from one tutoring session to the next. Needless to say, the miles and wear on my car were adding up, and the $18/hr was NOT worth it. I went through several sets of tires in a matter of months.
Management is nice. I've never had a problem with them. There weren't any co-workers because of the nature of the job. The most enjoyable part was helping other students. The hardest part was the driving and the aggressive parents. They are paying like $80/hr (or more) to VT for their child, even though you only see a small portion of that. Anyway, because they're paying so much, many of them seem to be very pushy.
Nice Management, Easy Job to do
Underpaid, In dependent Contractor, Overwhelming Parents, Too much driving
