Organized and effecient workplace
Assistant Instructor (Current Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 3 February 2017
The Kumon centre is very organized with many rules and codes; none of which are difficult to learn or keep up. Uniforms are provided free of charge, are comfortable, and dress code is professional and reasonable. Management is flexible, and the environment is rather relaxed for the most part. Management will assign you to different roles according to your skill - whether that be recording data, teaching younger students or consistently marking work. You must be patient and good with children to work here. All children ask questions, some throw tantrums, and some are dead silent. However, it is extremely rewarding to watch them grow and learn and know that you took part in helping them do so. Wages are fair and workers are friendly. There is minimal to no rivalry, and competitions are friendly to encourage each other to do better (i.e. who can mark the fastest and most accurately?).
The back room is often stocked with free food and drink
