    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Tutor Doctor part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Direct communication with parents, methods of reporting sessions are organized

    Cons

    Pay is little, good for high schoolers perhaps. Would need to work for some time, diligently and always looking for more and more students to amp up pay. If you don't have a car and travel by bus, just the transportation time will eat up so much of your day and efforts and make the pay not worth it.
