Great pay, satisfying work, unstable environment
Biology and chemistry tutor (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 1, 2015
Tutoring is an excellent source of income as a student, overall. However commutes are often long to the homes of students, and the student often sets the pace of learning and occasionally are simply not willing despite the insistence of the parent(s). This can make this job frustrating, but there is nothing more satisfying than helping a young student succeed.

This job can be unstable as you are a contract tutor and if there are no available contracts in your area or time blocks, you won't be paid.

Great management and great way to gain experience
English & ESL Tutor (Current Employee), Scarborough, ONJanuary 7, 2015
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: pay once a month by cheque
I typically go to a student's home or a designated meeting place where I come prepared with my lesson for the specific time frame of the tutoring session. I learned that you can build trust and friendship with the students you tutor and really help them achieve their personal or academic goals. Management at Tutor Doctor is absolutely amazing; they are kind and understanding employers who care about their employees. My co-workers are compassionate people, just as I am, and love helping their students learn and reach their individual, unique goals. The hardest part of the job is unexpected cancellations and parents backing out of the tutoring. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching students grow, learn, and get closer to reaching their goals.

Good working and learning experience
K-12 Tutor (Current Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 29, 2014
Pros: betters planning and communication skills, an excellent self-learning experience, decent pay
Cons: a lot of responsibility, long commute at times
The staff at Tutor Doctor are amazing and extremely supportive. However, due to the fact that every child is different and learns differently, some house-calls can be quite challenging.

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.

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.

Tutor (Current Employee), Toronto, ONMay 20, 2013
Pros: great pay
Cons: travel
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.
