Tutor (Current Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – 31 January 2018
I love working for Tutor Doctor, they have great staff and the experience has been amazing. I dislike how I need to drive place to place with no vehicle coverage, depending on how many students you have in one night, the amount you lose in gas may not be compensated by the amount you make.
Tutor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 January 2018
Join Tutor Doctor ... I love focusing on student (special needs is my preference). Tutor Doctor saw the results of my tutoring a regular student versus special needs and now if there is a student with an IPP, Autistic, Developmentally delayed etc, they'll reference that child to me and give the parents a heads up on who I am in that skill. You'll feel you are making a difference in each child you meet!

Science Tutor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 November 2017
Flexible, however time consuming in terms of commuting and not really worth it. The compensation does not cover the commuting cost and you would have to have many students to cover your costs and benefit.
Mathematics Tutor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 25 October 2017
Very busy, conscientious, dedicated tutoring agency that has good, professional relationships with its tutors and clients. Administration is pleasant and flexible; willing to give more work provided it fits with your schedule. Tutor Dr has helped and continues to help students improve their grades and interest in various subjects. Overall a great company to work for.
Flexible and friendly management that care about advancement
Education Consultant and Tutor (Current Employee) – Uxbridge, Ontario – 11 July 2017
I started off as an Education Consultant with this company and moved into many roles. I couldn't stand the 9-5 lifestyle so the flexibility and the fact I could make my own schedule was very appealing to me. The position as an EC made me comfortable with problem solving and creating programs to fit the student specifically. I've advanced within the company as a Marketing Manager and Tutor Recruiter and there are constantly new opportunities within education (such as Jr. Engineering programs and other educational workshops where you get to work within the schools). Best job I've ever had!
Contract Tutor (Current Employee) – Calgary, Alberta (Canada) – 10 July 2017
As this work was as a contractor, I found there was a lot of flexibility to tutor according to my own schedule. Tutor Doctor did a great job in matching me up with a couple of students who I worked very well with. There is never any pressure to take on more students than you are able to handle. Their website for filing reports and tracking hours is very user friendly and they always pay on time via direct deposit to your bank account. I would highly recommend Tutor Doctor as a good company to tutor for.
Tutor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 April 2017
Tutor doctor allows me to work when I am available. it gives me the chance to work with students and face problems that I can overcome with the students. it has helped me learn how to step outside my comfort zone and deal with new experiences.
Tutor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 6 March 2017
This company is a complete scam. They say that they're providing students with special method but when I was a tutor with them they provided zero hours of training. All they did was refer you to some materials they had within a company app that you could find absolutely anywhere else. I felt bad for the parents for believing them.
Flexible hours and rewarding, but feast or famine.
Mathematics and Chemistry Tutor (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 1 April 2016
Being a part of a student's learning and witnessing their progress is very rewarding. You can generally choose how many students you want to take on at a time based on your availability and willingness or ability to travel to the students' homes. The job is very much based on student demand, however, so you may go without students (and hence work) for some time, especially over the summer.
French tutor (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 January 2016
Greeting everybody in the morning is like a culture. Be it the janitor of the director, I would go and talk to all of them. I believe that this is a trait that defines a person. You have to be able to interact with everyone within an organization.
I have learnt a lot of organizational skills. Being a student, I was a very disciplined person, but when we enter the job market, that same disciplined has to be applied differently.
The hardest part of my job was to persuade a biased person. People do not easily accept change, especially sometimes when you are dealing with someone older than you. In that situation, confidence plays a major role.
The most enjoyable part would be being rewarded and appreciated for the hard work that has been put in an assignment.
