Too focused on acronyms to teach kids, needed to adapt more to various teaching and learning styles. Too quick to label.
Tutor (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON11 December 2015
The typical day had me come in and spend an hour with students, a maximum of four, with exercise booklets in Math and Language. The most enjoyable was working and laughing with the students.

French/English Instructor (Former Employee) –  Finch and Victoria Park6 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).
Pros
Teaching French
Cons
low pay and not enough hours

Supervisor/Educator (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON25 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.

Very fun, great experience with teaching children
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON24 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.
Pros
Great experience, amazing environment
Cons
Not a lot of scheduled hours

A growth experience that has certainly shaped my paradigms for the future
Sole Proprietor / Teacher (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, ON28 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.
Pros
The best of being your own boss is the write offs, and uncapped salary
Cons
Time commitment
