Day in the life of
Tutor – Karina Durand
I am a tutor and also the director of a tutoring company, so I manage multiple tutors. We focus on SAT/ACT/Other Test Prep as well as general math and other subjects.
Because it is a small business, a huge part of my job includes marketing and sales. Without client acquisition, there is no work for any of us! Customer service also takes up much of my time. I do teach quite a bit, but unfortunately, it is not the majority of what I do.
Flexibility and freedom! In the long run, it is better pay than being a teacher.
Job insecurity at times, especially during summer because it is a seasonal job, and it only includes the benefits you can afford based on your revenue (teachers would usually get health insurance and the like, tutors have to go to the marketplace).
