      Pros and cons of tutoring at McGill

      Jul 6, 2021 - Tutor in Montreal, QC

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Reasonable hourly rate for undergraduate students to ease pressure on managing finances. The coordinator is extremely friendly and always reachable.

      Cons

      Since this is a matching service above all, a lack of demand for tutors will translate into few or no students to tutor. This isn't something that Tutoring Services has control over.
