    I have been working at Tutor Doctor part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am very impressed with the coordination of students to tutor. The ease of just getting their details, preparing the lesson, turning up and teaching, returning home and submitting a report is very nice. No need to source students. Very convenient. It is a well organised company. I also like the fact we submit reports and a track record is kept. The fact that parents have already paid upfront is also good as you know...

    Cons

    I feel the rate we are given is very low. I can earn more tutoring on my own, and do, but the convenience is very impressive with TutorDoctor and their support invaluable..

    Advice to Management

    You could pay more!

    I worked at Tutor Doctor part-time

    Pros

    The flexible hours and personal relationships that you can form are a joy to behold.

    Cons

    Online session summaries are compulsory for all students despite having never been read by anyone. Pay is low compared to tutoring privately

    Advice to Management

    Make online session reports an option that parents of pupils can opt-in to

      The interview process was very simple and straightforward and Shumit my boss was able to find me a suitable student who he thought would be a good fit. There is always opportunities to take on more than one student too so it's good extra money which has helped me pay for my bills.

      I have been working at Tutor Doctor full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      A great platform for tutors to use in order for them to log their hours as well as session notes and outcomes. It works easily around your schedule, allowing to pick up more students during peak season, or refuse a student if you’re busy with your personal life. Shantanu Gupta from Tutor Doctor Harrow is especially lovely, regardless of the time of day, he will help resolve any problems you have and accomodate your...

      Cons

      I wish there was an option for students to come to me too, some students don’t have a big enough space or don’t feel comfortale to have strangers in their house and don’t wish to do online lesson, so the lessons end up being in public places.

      I have been working at Tutor Doctor part-time

      Pros

      Total flexibility of working whenever suits me to fit in around family and other commitments.

      Cons

      The journey time to one of my students is 50 mins which means most of my hourly pay goes on petrol.

      Advice to Management

      Get leaflet dropping in Cambourne to promote tutor doctor.

      I have been working at Tutor Doctor part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      They find the students for you

      Cons

      Travel costs aren't covered Have to write report for every lesson No set payment date Don't always respond to emails Payment starts at £15 but I'm quite sure the client pays at least £30 per lesson

      Advice to Management

      As an employee, I do all the lesson planning, actual teaching and travel to and from the students house. I feel that I deserve to start on at least £20 an hour - this is London and life is expensive.
