    I worked at Mathnasium part-time

    Pros

    nice, clean environment
    team teaching meaning that if you are having trouble with a student there is someone else to help
    kids are generally very kind and sweet

    Cons

    somewhat low pay given that qualifications are pretty high
    hours are afterschool, and generally have to commit more hours during the school year while less during breaks (which for a person still studying, it is quite a hassle)

    I worked at Mathnasium part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Easy to apply method. Good part time for graduate students. Uniform provided. Snacks in the centre but not always.

    Cons

    May not have enough shifts for instructors to compensate all employees. Shifts depend on the number of students in a center.

    Advice to Management

    Be accommodating to instructors. Make sure there are equal opportunities for everyone

    I have been working at Mathnasium part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - It's part-time, so it's easy to manage along with school-work.

    - It's a very easy job: you help students understand concepts that they are having difficulty with. You sit most of the time and you walk around only when moving to help another student.

    - Materials to be taught is very easy - up to grade 12 (calculus and vectors, here in Ontario), so if you're good at math, it's an easy job.

    - You have plenty of ways to teach the students - they give you various tools that can help you in teaching them (they're called manipulatives). For e.g. they have various polyhedra to help students visualize what polyhedra look like. They also have fake money so that it's easier for instructors to teach students about money.

    Cons

    - If you're looking for a full-time position, you probably won't get it.

    - The pay isn't that great

    - No benefits packages

    Advice to Management

    None so far.
