Low pay. Bad Management
Learning Center Instructor (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAJune 18, 2018
Working with children to advance their math proficiency is rewarding. However, the pay is abysmal and they never provide enough hours. In addition, the management is incompetent.

Fun workplace with so many activities
Math Tutor (Former Employee) –  Shelby Charter Township, MIJune 15, 2018
A typical work day is tutoring 3-4 different grade students from elementary to high school. I learned many ways to make basic math concepts easier to digest and understand. The management of the center is fairly good. The workplace culture was friendly. The hardest part of the job is to get 6 students per hour from different grade level and give adequate instruction individually (This does not happen all the time). The most enjoyable part of the job is to draw a smile on the face of a kid who struggles to understand his/her homework.

Productive and relaxing work environment
Instructor (Current Employee) –  Friendswood, TXMay 22, 2018
Before opening, there are a list of duties that the opening staff must complete. Though the tasks require little effort, they do consume time. Afterwards, the main task is to maintain a functional work environment for children while also instructing mathematical lessons provided by training upon hire. Management is very efficient and comforting. The culture of Mathnasium is very team-based. While some cases required specified individuals, the center itself ran on team functionality. The hardest part of the job is monitoring and maintaining a proper work environment when a large group of children are present. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the children understand the lesson being taught to them and firmly grasp the material.
Pros
Excellent hours, refresh on mathematical concepts
Cons
Misbehaving children or those with the loss of motivation

Quiet Place to help students with Math

This company offers students an excellent resource. A quiet place to work and focus solely on math for a few hours. Tutors offer assistance and help the students focus.

Decent for a side job, not sustainable for actual income
Tutor/Mentor (Current Employee) –  Oviedo, FLMay 20, 2018
Payed minimum wage to tutor students at overloaded ratios. Sometimes work is more disciple and behavior management instead of actual instruction. Only get up to 20 hours a week with no possibility of upward movement in the company.

Great company
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Murphy, TXMay 16, 2018
The owner and manager were great people, very hands-on and willing to help us when we were struggling to assist a student. The company meetings were great times to ask questions and learn more about how to help the children. However I never got the change to make full-time instructor pay. I loved working there and would have worked longer if I didn't have to go on maternity leave.

Great place to work with the right owner
Center Director/Teacher (Current Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAMay 16, 2018
With the right leader, Mathnasium can thrive. Center directors work with owners to make sure the center runs the way it should. However, in Baton Rouge, the owner does not listen to his center directors or their needs. He simply makes decisions without any input, and for that reason, he is in debt, and the business won't last much longer.
Cons
no healthcare, opinions not considered

Fast pace job requiring multi-tasking with students
Math Tutor (Current Employee) –  Freehold, NJMay 15, 2018
I would work with students with their math binders and explain to them the steps of answering questions. The hardest part of the job is to explain to students how math answer is achieved. The workplace is fastpaced requiring you to be alert to the student's needs at all times.

I absolutely loved working here
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Carmel, INMay 4, 2018
It's such a fun place to work. You work one on one with kids and build great relationships with them. The environment is fun and relaxed, and you keep up on your math skills! management is amazing and works with you for your schedule. The only downside is that very limited hours are available. It's mostly part-time work, but it's great for students or someone just wanting to fill some time and earn some extra money.
Pros
play board games, make friends, it rocks
Cons
minimal hours

Lead Instructor (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAMay 3, 2018
Working at Mathnasium was one of the best jobs I've ever had! I loved working with the students, and the management at my location was wonderful. It can be stressful at times, but it is very rewarding work. The pay is also a bit low, but I took the job because of the steady hours.

Fun place to work but not much pay
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALApril 27, 2018
Management is friendly and most of the kids are a joy to work with except for a few bad apples. There are very limited hours available, evenings Sunday - Thursday, and the pay is low so it's not much.

Productive place to work and share math knowledge
Instructor (Current Employee) –  North Edison, NJApril 18, 2018
Mathansium is a good company especially for part time. Working with younger kids can be challenging but also rewarding. As a person who enjoys math and is willing to share what i know with others, Mathansium was a great fit for me.

Working under pressure but a Good First Job
Tutor (Current Employee) –  La Canada Flintridge, CAMarch 23, 2018
Most day, tutors work under pressure trying to help every student. Like teaching, some students are a joy, some need discipline. The director knows when to step in when necessary. This job helps exercise skills like communication and persistence.

Busy fast paced environment
Center Director (Current Employee) –  Willowbrook, ILMarch 13, 2018
A typical day as the center director included greeting students and parents, scheduling student sessions, answering phones, contacting leads and setting up/ administering assessments. I was also responsible for each students learning plan and daily operations of the center, including training, hiring and firing instructors when necessary. I also supported the instructors be printing materials for students, helping grade student work and teaching. A typical day was fast paced and required a lot of organization and detail oriented tasks. The hardest part of the job was balancing all of the needs of the students, parents and instructors.
Pros
Working with kids and seeing them grow in confidence and understanding with math.
Cons
Little to no feed back from the owner.
