Tutor Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Tutor?

Tutor in Savannah:
"The enthusiasm of working as a Spanish tutor."
Pros: I very much enjoy working one-on-one with people. It's a great opportunity to pass on valuable information as well as establish a good rapport with intelligent individuals. Few things are more thrilling than see the eureka moment for a learner, my job is to set up as many of those opportunities as possible. As a job, it's also nice to not have such a routine schedule; each day is unique. Compared to much of the other subjects offered for tutoring, language tutoring offers the opportunity to attract both short-term and long-term students. There are those who desire to learn Spanish or English, for that matter, over an extended period of time, years even. Additionally, tutoring languages, especially Spanish, attracts adult learners, parents who want their children to learn, college students needing assistance with coursework; just a wide array of clients. A little of it all comes your way.
Cons: I do not have benefits such as a 401-K or health insurance provided. Also, there is no opportunity for paid vacation days. That means when disaster strikes, you should have enough saved up to cover for sick days and such. It can be inconsistent as well. In general, one can anticipate the "seasons" when people seek the most assistance for classwork but there's little to guarantee there will be clients when you need the income.

Tutor in Oakland:
"Math & English Tutor."
Pros: I get to work with a variety of students and skill sets from ages 3-18. I love to bond with them and it's always a pleasure to see them grow.
Cons: I think that I could be getting paod more for all the work that I do, not to mention the amount of time it takes me just to commute.

Tutor in Isabel:
"Rewarding."
Pros: I get to help children better their lives by making sure learning is fun for them. Also knowing that they will not go hungry because we are a food pantry as well.
Cons: People that complain about the food donated.

Tutor in Santa Clarita:
"1-12th grade tutor."
Pros: Talking with the students about their life.
Cons: Difficult students who refuse to work.

Tutor in Sacramento:
Pros: It's rewarding to see progress in the clients.
