I was so excited when I got and invitation to apply on their site. But when I got there I was really disappointed to see that this company states you will pay for training and train for 4-6 weeks without any pay. It remains to be seen if they choose to change the game plan. 😔

The working hours are good if you do not want a very intrusive job but i would suggest taking on another job if you want to make more money.

I was asked how I would handle disciplining children in certain situations... I can't remember the rest, but I don't remember it being super hard. They are always in need of good tutors. As long as you have knowledge of the core subjects, and a willingness to help kids, then you should do great!

I think one thing i would like is for tutors to be a bigger part of the program. Maybe still keep the three days a week involvement but make more of an effort in student tutor interactions. Doing activities with them, having one on one conversations with the students to build a stronger more trusting relationship between each other, allowing students to do Q and As with tutors.
