The worst place to worked ever.
Math etacher (Former Employee) –  Chicago Heights, ILNovember 21, 2018
Stressful job, unprofessional management, owners just looking for the parent's money. Not sure that kids can improve their math skills there! Long story short, I would never give my kids in this school!

Terrible management
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAOctober 14, 2018
A typical mom-and-pop business with unprofessional, arrogant, and highly opinionated management and administration. Predominantly hiring, as they call it, "desperate" Eastern European recent immigrants, to exercise their totalitarian control and micromanagement. They put enormous responsibility and pressure on their school principals, and underpay their teachers, who are considered expendable.

This business never appreciates the human factor, treating their personnel as a commodity or objects. Everything is geared to praising "their way" and "their" curriculum, which in fact is an amalgam of published Soviet/Russian original materials, adapted to the US environment. The whole business is driven by the relentless pursuit of financial gain to the benefit of the owners.

Not the best place to work at
Teacher (Former Employee) –  RSM, Andover, MAJune 8, 2018
A family-and-friends company focused on profit. Parents, those who pay the money, are more important than students and teachers. Teachers are treated like slaves, constantly controlled with total lack of trust and respect, and they are paid only for the time spent in class, and not paid for preparation, for correcting quizzes, for constant e-mail communication with parents, for preparing report cards and recommendations, etc. The Math program is well done and may be very helpful to students who originally come with strong math skills and thinking, and it is a waste of time and money for those who struggle in school and come to RSM to improve their math skills. Bias, lack of professionalism, and rudeness are the norm at RSM.
Pros
Relatively well organized and good work materials
Cons
Not well paid for the amount of work teachers are asked to do, very stressful

The teachers staff is very supportive. You get to teach wonderful bright kids. Be aware Russian school program is very fast paced, compared to American Program, so it is important to make sure that each and every kid gets attention he or she needs.

Mathematics Teacher (Former Employee) –  MassachusettsJuly 9, 2017
The initial idea for creating it is honorable but at the end of the day is down to business. The parents have the saying to move a student up a level even if the student is not ready.

Math Teacher (Former Employee) –  Evergreen, CAApril 28, 2017
I was working part-time with given just 4 work hours per week, without any benefits. I really loved my director. Everybody were very friendly there. They have all programs ready to teach, and that's good. But they work on the weekends, which is very inconvenient if you have a family.

Math Tutor (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYJune 22, 2015
Being a tutor at RSM is a lot different than being a tutor anywhere else, or freelance. Scheduling and management is a big responsibility here. It is set up with it's own curriculum so it actually involves a lot of teaching and teaching involving tasks.
