Productive and nurturing workplace
Tutor (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 27 November 2017
A typical day at work consisted of aiding children with homework and providing guidance. I learned to take initiative and time management while working there. As a student in the IB program it is difficult to have a job and maintain school grades however, Kumon allowed me to nurture this skill by starting off with low hours and eventually working up to higher hours. Allowing time management to grow. It also taught me how to multitask as children often swarmed my desk with question therefore, by adapting to the hectic nature of the job I was able to improve my multitasking skills. The hardest part of the job was trying to balance all the different tasks at once such as marking homework, while taking questions from 3 different students at once. However, this helped me improve my problem solving skills and made me more capable of handling high pressure situations.
