Well, I make a heck of a lot more than the base pay, because I've been doing this for six years and have been promoted multiple times, but starting pay is usually in the vicinity of $18/hr. or so (depends on region) for actual class teaching and $8.10/hr. for prep time. (This is part of the reason that the starting rate is lower for Princeton Review than for some other companies: we pay prep time, too, which we assume is about 84 hours for the 84-hour course.) You're also paid $10/hr. for time spent corresponding with students from your class, either by phone or by email, and virtually any other time you spend doing things related to class you can be compensated for.

This is also part of the reason that base pay rate can be very misleading. There's no way I'd make as much money as I do right now if I switched to another company, and there's some chance (haven't looked into the details) that even if I were a starting-out teacher right now, I'd make as much money at TPR as anywhere else.

POWERSCORE

I have a sorted history with standardized testing, but the full length powerscore course took me from a 158 on the first diagnostic (149 my sophomore year of college) to a 167 on the actual scored test. It was well organized and I was lucky enough to have an instructor in the same field, education. I'm happy with my experience, but at the end of the day its all on you anyway. Powerscore puts that out there at the very beginning. Sweet Livin'.
