TLS posters in the past have been great tutors for me (even better than me). The energy and passion to get people to study and do the work is the key. It's common on TLS and not as common elsewhere.
My group, LSAT Wiz (http://www.lsatwiz.com) also does something different by charging students less than 1/2 of the other companies while paying the tutors 200% of Kaplan and Princeton Review. If you're interested in earning some income, please PM me. The students pay $60ish an hour, we pay income tax and your $35/hr salary. All lessons are at least 2 hours.
Cambridge LSAT supplies our materials, and we teach an easy to grasp system. We need people to get the February and June tests up and running ASAP!!
There's no non-compete or any BS like that. You can work for anyone else simultaneously. Teach the methods we train you in. WDGAF. Our goal is for our tutors to become the best and get all experience necessary. Most of our tutors go onto T-14 and then big law, and thus leave us lonely and crying. Hence, the vacancy. Just don't try to steal our students or anything. We're even happy to help our tutors self-enterprise and grow out. We pay $70 per two hour lesson (all lessons are 2 hours).
This is strictly a freelance part time opportunity. You will have to have a 170+, and will have to be able to explain things to people who function much slower than you. You'll also have to be reliable with text, and can be weird but not "scary weird". You also can't hit on the students, not going through that again.
If you're interested, PM. If not, run along, frolic and prosper.
We really need an Long Island (Plainview) tutor. Our LI star went off to Penn and the woman who replaced him was great for years but snapped at some students and we had to let her go. Can anyone teach in LI?
Also, the transfer shtick is bad for NYC schools. You could get into Columbia or a full ride but are losing hundreds of thousands and it's 50/50 you'll ever pay it back. Like crack there's no way you ever perceive it as a good decision. Unlike crack, it won't even make you temporarily happy.
