French/English Instructor (Former Employee) – Finch and Victoria Park – 6 May 2015
A great place for new teachers to gain hands-on experience in the field. The hardest part of the job was to divide your attention between 3 different students who were studying completely different subjects (in the most extreme cases). Enjoyed helping French students with homework, whether they were in Core French or IB French (of all levels).
Supervisor/Educator (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 25 March 2015
Welcoming circle and Letter introductions, integrated fun learning games and early reading experiences. Management was always late for clients meeting and staff turnover was very high which made it hard but the best part of this job was the respect the my clients gave me, and seeing the difference in how much the children learned while working with me.
Teacher (Current Employee) – Tecumseh, ON – 2 March 2015
Working at Oxford has provided me with extensive experience working with students of all different age levels and learning styles. It has allowed me to develop management strategies as well as effective teaching practices tailored to each individual student. The staff and management are fantastic, friendly, and supportive.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 24 January 2015
A very memorable place to work with zero negativity. I had a wonderful boss who believed in the company and worked hard for everybody. Very great place to work but as a teacher/coach the pay is decent but getting the hours is the hard part. When i was there it was about 8 hours a week. A great second job or part time job as a teacher.
A growth experience that has certainly shaped my paradigms for the future
Sole Proprietor / Teacher (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 28 June 2014
Oxford Learning is a brilliant company that was founded by a Child Psychologist who based the entire program on basic cognitive theory and positive reinforcement to pare with the Canadian educational stream. I started with the company as the Academic Preschool Teacher and in time, bought the location for Niagara Falls.
My duties varied as I changed roles. From human resource management, to teaching to marketing to making my own radio commercials, my days were very busy!!
The hardest part of the job was the daily time commitment. With being your own boss, you pay the price of having to be away from family a lot.
The best of being your own boss is the write offs, and uncapped salary
Teacher (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 1 March 2014
The job is quite taxing; It demands a lot of the instructor in that typically there is a 3:1(students to teacher) ratio. Most kids struggle to keep focused and sometimes require your full attention. I was always taught growing up that one works best when uninterrupted but the philosophy at Oxford leans more towards not holding the hand of the student all the time, they will have to become independent, and sooner rather than later. The teacher must learn to juggle the students. There is a specific system/philosophy that Oxford follows and it does not work for everyone. Management was great, looking for ways to help teachers improve and encourage struggling students. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a student finally "gets it", you feel like you've at least impacted one student with something you've learned. Co-workers were also encouraging, offering tricks of the trade. All in all, a great place to work.
❸ Teacher (Current Employee) – Barrhaven, ON – 4 November 2013
A typical day at work that consists of teaching/tutoring children to teenagers various subjects. This is most certainly a job to have if you are not quite yet finish your undergraduate studies and have not yet completed your Bachelors of Education.
This job does require one to multi-task, and make quick and logical decisions.
Education Director (Former Employee) – Bolton – 15 August 2013
Having worked at Oxford for 5 years I can say that I truly learned the value of a strong foundation in education and what that means for children. I learned that education is not only limited to what happens in the classroom or what kids read in their texts, but that it's about strong relationships and communication. All that happened at my table when I was a learning coach at Oxford.
Very flexible working hours, and awesome as a part time job!
Dealing with complacent staff, and absent minded parents
