    Do not recommend this tutoring company

    Pros

    I do not recommend this company.

    Cons

    They expect a lot of work for very little pay while their rates to their clients are high. Tutors are expected to bring in all materials and create lesson plans. Time doing this is not compensated and the team will give you a very constructed excuse of having inclusive pay. They tell you there are resources and help available but when you reach out, they tell you to find it on your own. They make you believe they have a huge team working behind the scenes but it’s just a few people (who are very nice btw) but seem very overworked, and sometimes unable to help. My interviewer was nice (a little scripted) but it seems they were selling the company to me. Also they tell you there are incentives- they don’t exist.

    Pros

    The management is very organized, and helpful! Not to mention kind and supportive of your achievements. They really try their best to match students and teachers to provide the best possible outcome. Great company!

    Cons

    I do not have any cons other than maybe more people need to know about this company to utilize it when their children need help.😊

    Pros

    Novastar Prep has a wonderful mission to help kids reach their full potential by providing them with personalized instruction, and it shows in the way the company treats both its employees and its clients! The hiring process for tutors is incredibly selective, making sure that only the best tutors are paired with students and that they are compensated well for their time and effort (unlike other companies I've worked for that underpay tutors significantly). Management is super friendly and caring, and very proactive in making sure students and parents are satisfied with the quality of the service. Great experience working for this company overall!

    Cons

    No cons to speak of.

    Pros

    Recently got done with interview and orientation. Must say Novastar really cares about their employees and is a very motivation and inspiration driven company. Interview process was easy, basic questions about getting to know the person closely and looking for the passionate individuals. Orientation was very inspiring, lively, and full of positive energy that would make any person feel more confident about the job.

    Cons

    None at all. They always got your back. So glad being a part of it. So no cons at all.

    - Staff is kind, diverse, and genuinely seeking to better education and build confidence in students so that they are successful in education -Most concerned about the people and the relationships that they build opposed to making a quick buck on your child's intellectual challenges -Extremely communicative; emails and phone calls all day to maintain order and keep staff up-to-date -Encouraging atmosphere and upper management staff who are not willing to compromise their record to make money -Always looking for input from learning coaches and ways to improve the company overall -Awards staff for what may seem like mini milestones -Upholds rules and safety regulations for the protection of the staff -Organized database in which clientele and other records can be stored -Timely pay and pay stub records -Respectful, honest, and committed

    Cons

    -Company does not cover travel expenses (the company funds everything else...this is a "con" within reason)
