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

    Pros

    The team I work for is friendly and helpful when I ask for help.

    Cons

    You're not paid to do session reports. You are also not paid for prep time or travel time. They charge their clients over $50 an hour, but pay their tutors doing all this other leg work less than 1/2.

    Advice to Management

    Pay their tutors more fairly, especially with all these extra things that are required of them.

    I have been working at Tutor Doctor part-time

    Pros

    You choose your hours, which subjects and what grades you are willing to teach. Decent salary and organized system.

    Cons

    You will also need to spend a couple minutes outside your teaching time to create session review, not a complete con but can be difficult when balancing workloads.

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

    Pros

    Great communication with the administrative team. Replies to emails and calls quickly. The information provided about the clients is enough to decide if you believe you can tutor them effectively.

    Cons

    New clients come sporadically. Most clients are looking for Math or English tutors. Occasionally, there will be clients looking for Science tutors. Most clients live up north (i.e. North York area) so it makes travelling difficult if you live in downtown Toronto.

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

    Pros

    The flexibility of this job is ideal, it fits in seamlessly with a busy schedule.

    Cons

    The cons of working for Tutor Doctor include the non-compete clause which does not allow you to work as a tutor for a certain amount of years after holding a position with them. The management take advantage of student tutors and display power dynamics through their interactions with student tutors. I experienced a very hostile phone call with my employer (Calgary Area), in which I was scolded and bullied.... Communication issues arose between my employer and I, my employer left a voicemail to contact me and I could not get back to them due to a personal emergency and rigorous academic semester. When I did email to discuss my availability, I was met with very abrasive and crude behaviour. My employer called me and began bullying me and saying such things as; "I find it funny you want to discuss availability just as we have kicked you out of our system", which was the first I was hearing about no longer being in the system. They had simply removed me from the system without as much as an email. Further she went on to say, "you must have submitted it right before she removed you from the system, how ironic is that". I find this completely unprofessional, and a gross lack of care and empathy for employees. In what way is it okay to mock and jeer at your employees? Additionally, my employer began making passive aggressive comments in regards to my desire to take on a new student. She very resentfully said things such as "do you realize how long it will take you to get to the student", and “you do realize the house is so far from your home". I find this very demeaning, as I too can read an address, and I too understand the concept of distance and time.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to pick individuals for management positions that have the emotional and mental capacity to be empathetic and professional individuals. It is very concerning to see people who are in the position of managing many students grossly abuse their positions and behave in such inappropriate behaviour. I had never been bullied by an employer, until I worked for Tutor Doctor.
