        I have been working at C2 Education part-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Good pay, flexible hours, can pretty much work as many or as few hours as you want if you teach enough subjects well, they handle scheduling all your students, and they all meet you at the same place (no traveling around town!)

        Cons

        Pay is terrible compared to what the center pulls in. Parents pay upwards of $55/hour to the center, so even with overhead and corporate big brother oversight, I can't help but feel underpaid. Ex. making $21/hour to tutor 2-3 kids per 2-hour session= average gross income of (2.5*2*55)=275-42 (money that goes toward teacher)= net center income of $233/session. 3 sessions per day (average) means a net center income of about...

        Advice to Management

        Be transparent about financials. I personally love the center I work at and everyone who works there, especially the center director and program lead! But I do feel taken advantage of and that simply may not be the case given the fact that it is a corporation and center-level management may have its hands tied regarding the pay and benefits they can offer despite the level of success of the center.

        I have been working at C2 Education part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Fair pay for part-time tutoring. I started at 28$/hour. Many other tutoring locations were offering between 19-25$. Come in and work directly with the students with specific material. No need to plan complex lessons, however, there is room for your own lesson-plans. No need to find and travel to private students for tutoring. It's all taken care of. Management deals with parents for you.

        Cons

        Part-Time, may not always get the number of hours you would like. 3:1 classroom setting can be challenging at first, but you get used to it. No benefits as it is a part-time position.

        Advice to Management

        Provide more in-class training for new teachers. Highly recommend someone sit down with them before and after their first couple of classes to guide them through blue books. Recommend providing extra 30 minutes admin before class and 15 after for new teachers' first week.

        I worked at C2 Education part-time

        Pros

        - Base pay begins at ~$20/hour and you can earn more depending on how many subjects you teach - Fairly easy job if you know your subjects - Low stress working with students because you have the materials you need to teach prepared by the company - Good job if you're just trying to make some extra money

        Cons

        - Minimum wage pay during training and for admin work - Profit-driven model of enrolling students & making parents feel like they need to purchase more hours for their children to succeed begins to feel soulless - Will not give full hours to teachers to avoid paying benefits/over-time - Students will be charged thousands of dollars for a package, but teachers will only receive a SMALL portion; begins to feel...

        Current Employee - Teacher 

        I have been working at C2 Education part-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        • Friendly colleagues & management • Motivated students • Flexible schedule • Company has own curriculum, which is easy to learn (not including HW tutoring)

        Cons

        • Low pay • Hard to get hours (they require 3:1 student teacher ratio, which means teachers don't get hours if the center directors have adequately enrolled enough students)

        Advice to Management

        • Make a pathway for teachers to do other things, such as academic advising • Open spots when parents explicitly request a teacher

        Pros

        HQ people are nice and friendly.

        Cons

        Managers are micromanaging hard! . They do not let you run your center without telling them every single details. This is a job for new graduates or retired teachers. There is no career here. Very odd hours and no work/life balance. Pay is a joke too. Dont buy their bonus plan, it is designed not to get it. Do not believe what they say during the interview. They told me one thing but actual bonus was a joke..

        Advice to Management

        Change your 90s mentality. Invest in your employees, technology and CRM ( it is the worst CRM that I have seen so far) otherwise you will be a history soon.
