I INITIALLY WANT TO SAY ALL THE KIDS I TUTOR ARE AWESOME AND MOTIVATED TO LEARN.  ACADEMIC ACADEMY USES THE PREMISE THAT THEY ARE A GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION THAT IS UNDER THE NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT.  THE ALSO DO ONE ON ONE LEARNING WITH LAPTOPS. THE KIDS RECEIVE A LAPTOP AFTER THEY COMPLETE 12 SESSIONS. WHILE WORKING WITH THEM I REALIZED IT WAS COSTING ME MORE IN GAS THAN I WAS MAKING TO GET TO MY SESSIONS. PLUS THE PLANNING TIME AND DRIVING TIME ,PARKING,  DESPITE LOVING THE KIDS I WAS WORKING WITH I DECIDED I COULD NOT FINANCIALLY CONTINUE. ACADEMIC ADVANTAGE SECRETLY MAKES YOU SIGN A CONTRACT THAT SAYS YOU WILL PAY THEM BACK 27.00 AN HOUR FOR EACH SESSION YOU DO NOT COMPLETE OUT OF 12. THEY PAY THEIR TUTORS 17 AN HOUR. HOWEVER I HAVE NEVER RECEIVED A PAYCHECK DUE TO THEIR UNORGANIZATION. I HAVE COPIES AND DOCUMENTS OF ALL THE TIMES I WORKED FOR THEM BUT THEY CONVENIENTLY LOSE THE PAPERWORK.  THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE WHO ARE OUT OF WORK.  I LOVED TUTORING THE KIDS AND I MAY JUST CONTINUE TO DO IT FOR FREE BUT THIS COMPANY IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HARD WORKING PEOPLE.
