Studying for the LSAT / Re: Teaching for Kaplan

Yea for tutoring. If you are teaching for Kaplan that could only mean one of two things. #1 You have no social skills, so none of the other prep companies will hire you.

#2 You can cut it with the big boys in the 98-99th percentile


Or #3, Kaplan is the only test prep company in you city.

...assumtions make an ass out of u and me

Law School Applications / Stalking the mail man?
« on: February 25, 2008, 09:23:09 PM »
I wait for the mail every day at 3:15. My mail man's name is Greg and I know the names of all 3 of his kids. He actually expects me and has my mail ready; it usually doesn't even make it inside the box.





...I have a problem.

Unfortunately PS doesn't offer classes at my school. The closest class is a about an hour and a half away. It would almost be worth the drive though.

"The pay is decent: $12/hour for each teaching hour and $7/hour for prep. If you do well and get a second class you get $15/hour teaching. The job is very satisfying and I enjoy teaching. Your first class is time consuming, but after that it's much easier because you don't have to prep as much."

well, but TM pays you something like $50/hour, so if you're comparing those two...then i would say kaplan isn't really paying you so well.



$50/hour?! Okay maybe the pay at Kaplan does suck in comparison...

As far as tutoring, it's around $100/hour for the student and the tutor gets paid $20/hour.

You guys are probably spot on; Kaplan does a pretty bad job, most of the time, getting good teachers. However, I still enjoy the job and plan on keeping it.

Think what you will about Kaplan but...

I took their classroom course and the teacher was awesome. He was very helpful and several of the methods and strategies really helped me. I ended up enjoying a 10 point increase on my actual LSAT from my diagnostic. Now I teach for Kaplan.

The pay is decent: $12/hour for each teaching hour and $7/hour for prep. If you do well and get a second class you get $15/hour teaching. The job is very satisfying and I enjoy teaching. Your first class is time consuming, but after that it's much easier because you don't have to prep as much.

I plan on teaching while in law school; it should work out well seeing as it only requires about 7 hours in the class room a week.

The reason people hate Kaplan is because they get bad teachers; the quality of teachers varies quite a bit. Hopefully if you decide to take on the job you'll be one of the seemingly few that give Kaplan a good name.

I'm in-state and at the lower half of their numbers; I keep thinking I might slide in as they fill the last of the class. It sucks knowing I might have to wait another month or two for a decision.
