K-12 Tutor (Current Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 29, 2014
Pros: betters planning and communication skills, an excellent self-learning experience, decent pay

Accomodating to both family and tutor.
Tutor students (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCDecember 7, 2014
It was a fun experience and workplace. They make sure that the tutor is not going in blindly to a person's home. The house is deemed safe by the manager and students are matched to tutors, based on qualifications and personalities.
some students require and hour, others are two, having materials ready for the students is something tutors have the option of providing the family.

Flexible and enjoyable
Tutor (Current Employee), Vaughan, ONSeptember 19, 2014
You are a free-agent with Tutor Doctor, so I travel from home to home to work with children. The pay is not great for certified teachers, but great for undergrads. You can choose the assignments you want to take on and then deal directly with the family for times and days to suit both needs.

Convenient and rewarding position
Tutor (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONJune 23, 2014
Pros: you are your own boss
Cons: travel expenses
It is very convenient that the tutor is able to choose their own times in accordance to the student and for the most part there is about a week between sessions to prepare the lessons and such. What I like the most is being able to help a student improve their skills that will no doubt help them in the future. We are able to have a good amount of time to prepare lessons in between sessions so that makes for a better and more condensed lesson to help in the students' learning. Sometimes the hard part tends to be when the student finds no fun/enjoyment in the subject matter so it tends to make the teaching part harder when the student doesn't want to learn it.

In home tutoring - very personal, great customers/clients. I've learned how to work with many different students of many ages. Most enjoyable part of this job is the satisfaction of a student doing better in school. Hardest part of the job is having patients for younger clients.

It is a job for teachers who love and know how to teach critical subject matter. Flexible approach to help student build skills in learning. Requires time management, genuine disciplined and individual system matching students' needs that makes possible for a student to capitalize on his/her strengths. Also allows building a system to help convert student's weaknesses into confidence leading to achievement of goals at the end of study course. Teaching and learning vs testing is emphasized.

Great fun teaching Psychology
Psychology Tutor (Current Employee), BirminghamJanuary 30, 2013
Pros: enhances my subject knowledge.
Cons: work unsociable hours.
In a typical day, I teach AS level & A2 level Psychology to students in the comfort of their own homes. I follow the AQA syllabus and teach every unit effectively and with passion. I use innovative strategies and resources for each lesson, so that students get a feel of different learning strategies.

I learnt that students learn better if I keep my lessons interactive throughout. I manage my resources effectively, such as teaching using the internet, text books and past exam papers. I have one co-worker who I work with, and who I update about all my students after each lesson using an electronic device (i.e. laptop) through Tutor Doctor email. He is very supportive and approachable.

The hardest part of my job is fitting in time to teach privately around my daily supply teaching job. I very much enjoy teaching Psychology, and gives me great satisfaction in passing on my subject knowledge to students.
