Center Director (Former Employee) – San Rafael, CA – January 14, 2019
C2 Education is a great place to learn about sales, marketing, and do-it-yourself-and-get-it-done mentality. It's a pressure cooker when it comes to meeting sales quotas and making the business just work. You can come away from there with a fantastic mindset and new outlook on business. It will also stress you out tremendously. Be warned.
Teacher/Tutor (Current Employee) – Closter, NJ – December 7, 2018
Flexible scheduling. The job can be a little intimidating at first. You work with three students at a time, but all three may be working on different material, and you need to be able to cater to the needs of all three. It takes some getting used to.
Center Director (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – November 9, 2018
I found management to be overbearing to the point of micromanaging with little opportunity to spread my wings as a new hire and this was the reason I left. If you enjoy working with kids you may be able to last a little longer or be better suited as a teacher and not a director.
Tutor (Current Employee) – Lilburn, GA – August 8, 2018
At C2 you work in 2 hour sessions. The amount of sessions vary depending on which C2 you work at. During the summer the hours can be slow, but it picks up drastically during the school year, providing for some good hours and cash. You will work with 1-4 students at the same time, but for the most part it's 3.
I've learned a lot from working here. Mainly on how to communicate Mathematical concepts in different ways to different people. I knew that everyone learns in a multitude of ways, but working at C2 was one of the first experiences I've had where I got to really test my skills in this field.
The management at the workplace is really nice. My boss is extremely nice to his employees and values them dearly. He is very understanding of life outside work.
Possibly the hardest part of the job is that sometimes there aren't enough employees there, and can lead to you having to work more hours than usual and working with more students. And even though this isn't the hardest part, it is aggravating. We use specific C2 books that cover information for the SAT's, but we only have one copy of each book. So if there is more than one specific subject tutor there, you might be trying to share the book between more than one table, and it then becomes a hassle.
The part I love the most about this job is when I'm working with a student who was struggling with a something in Mathematics and I'm able to explain it to them in terms that make sense to them. And seeing them understand and get excited about Math is what I truly enjoy the most.
Center Director (Former Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – July 27, 2018
C2 is a great place to start just out of college as there are opportunities for growth. Work/life balance is not good with late hours during the week (up to 10 PM) and working on weekends. As a director, sales are challenging but personal ability and has to be within your comfort. You will be pushed to meet targets and numbers in every position at C2.
Academic Tutor (Current Employee) – Fullerton, CA – June 16, 2018
Despite working for the company for several years, I rarely received any increase in pay. Do not respect Teachers' schedules in the sense they are required to wait on "potential" sessions which can be canceled at any time and result in zero pay. The program is designed to maximize profits as much as possible and limits the success and potential of students. I rarely see sessions have the best interest of students, …

Associate Center Director (Current Employee) – USA – June 8, 2018
C2 does not have good systems in place which makes it very difficult to effectively perform your duties. The duties you do have are often lacking clarity and can change depending upon the circumstances that day. The culture is an interesting situation. Many people are very comfortable and get away with doing things that are not productive or that inconvenience others but are allowed to continue to do say because the company can't retain people. Those that they do retain push the limits (most of the time it isn't in a positive way). I find the job to be stressful and not worth the headache. If it were more structured, corporate was more helpful and they respected the work-life balance it could be better. The message I often get from them is that they do not care about anything else just make me money. The only good aspect is that I have met some incredible students, parents and some incredible employees along the way. I have learned what to do and what not to do in a management position. My biggest complaint is that I have very little defense. CD and ACD jobs often intertwine and it becomes challenging to know who did what. It can often leave you in a place where you are stretched very thin or get blamed for something out of your control. Trainings are extremely long and days off usually result in phone calls and emails that could wait until you return. I see many people who work way overtime and days off being applauded for "hard work" rather then being told to take care of themselves and family. You are often expected to give so much of yourself that you have very little leftmore... for yourself. I am overall disappointed. If you can move on else where.less
You meet nice parents, students, and some employees
Center Director (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 26, 2018
I worked with C2 as a Center Director for almost three years. I am a passionate educator that makes my life mission to help kids succeed. This company was not for me. They truly do not care about the progress of students. Money, money and money is their focus and their downfall. It was sad to see upper management treating teachers and teams with little to no respect. It is the button line they are after, money. Turn over is super high and hours are demanding. Center Directors are on call pretty much 24/7. That is expected. No work-home life balance. Worst job ever, No integrity in upper-management. Happy to have moved on.
Wonderful families that care deeply about their children
productive, full of energy (many kids), and efficient
ASSISTANT DIRECTOR AND TUTOR (Former Employee) – Nanuet, NY – April 2, 2018
Through my experience at C2 Education, I have learned to be organized and efficient when handling various forms of paperwork. Paperwork includes anything from grading student work, employee hours, and scheduling.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Clifton, NJ – March 23, 2018
This is fast paced working environment, but you get a feeling that everyone cares about the students. The teachers are experts in their subjects, and they are well trained. The center director is very professional and respects the teachers. The atmosphere was easy, fun and fast. It was a pleasure to work at C2.
Lead Tutor (Former Employee) – Los Gatos, CA – March 21, 2018
Building too many centers without proper staffing forced many of us to play multiple roles with no training. This business is to make the most money for corporate with no consideration for tutors nor clients.
