Great environment for students to learn and grow

Sylvan learning Center provides the necessary tools and environment for aiding students from K-12. The amazing staff accommodate all students without hesitation and are always willing and ready.

Good staffing, great management.
Tutor/Teacher (Former Employee), Brantford, OnOctober 22, 2012
Pros: short shifts, working with youth, sense of accomplishment
Cons: short shifts, evenings only, unrealistic salary
The centre in Brantford was well managed, and the staff at the time were well-trained and skilled in working with young people -- I learned a lot about teaching from them. It was a good job, and things ran pretty smoothly most shifts, even when students didn't show (which was not often). They allowed me to be flexible in how I presented the material, – more... as I worked often with advanced students. It was a good experience for me. – less

Rewarding Job- Low Pay
Mathematics Instructor (Former Employee), Fredericton, NBAugust 19, 2012
Pros: great kids, supportive staff and management
Cons: pay
With the exception of salary and benefits, I have nothing but great things to say about Sylvan Fredericton. Friendly staff, great management and good kids. I loved going into work. With the low student-teacher ratio, you can development a strong rapport with the children and learn about their interests. Fantastic job!

Great place to teach and learn at the same time.
Senior Math Tutor (Former Employee), Burnaby, BCJuly 10, 2012
Pros: friendly atmosphere.
Working a sylvan learning centre provided me with the opportunity of working with more than ten employees at the same time. As an instructor I had to meet my desired target and that not only included good grades for students but also make learning fun so we have more happy customers at the end of the day. I also helped with local advertising and new – more... student recruitment. – less

nice place to work. people are not always too friendly
Teaching Assistant (TA) (Former Employee), Chula Vista, CADecember 15, 2014
I had a good time working at sylvan. I never got a salary raise and some teachers were not very nice. I had good and bad directors but did enjoy working there. The best part of all is working with kids. However every hour you have to have some activities ready for them to play during their break. Its a good place to work at for no more than 3 years – more... prbly. – less

Sylvan Learning Centers
Tutor (Current Employee), Seattle, WA.November 12, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Sylvan is extremely innovative and far ahead of public and private schools, because students are required to perform mastery in subject matter’ prior to moving on to the next level, which does not happen in public or private school settings. Additionally, with the exception of beginning reading and writing all lessons are on an IPAD and students have – more... individual lessons according to their needs rather than collectively. Regular assessments are performed and regular parental conferences. Excellent co-workers and center directors. – less

Sylvan Lafayette- Great Company
Math Teacher (Former Employee), Lafayette, INNovember 9, 2014
I enjoyed my time at Sylvan Learning Center teaching mathematics. I was hired on for my expertise in mathematics and was given the job of helping students from either kindergarten up to freshman in college in mathematics. Most subjects I tutored in were Algebra, Algebra II, PreCalculus, Geometry, Calculus I, and Calculus II.

Nice place to work, compensation could be better
Tutor (Current Employee), Bakersfield, CAOctober 24, 2014
Better than your average part-time job, but for jobs requiring a bachelor's, the salary stinks. Work is easy, you just use the script. Token system is nice, but older kids don't really care for tokens. It helps to have experience in the classroom. Everyone in my office (Bakersfield) is really nice. We had a really bad manager, but he only lasted one – more... year. Should have left sooner, but I assume he had a contract. – less

Tutor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 16, 2014
Pros: educating children
Cons: not enough time
Great company the work for, they treated me very well. I learned how to be very patient with children. My manager did not pull any punches, she was direct and straight to the point. My co-workers were very professional. The hardest part of the job was trying to complete the lesson in one session. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the – more... children. – less

Gifted teachers are dedicated to building confidence in students.
Teacher (Former Employee), Tucson, AZOctober 4, 2014
Pros: helpful co-workers and supervisors, motivated students
Cons: part-time work with no benefits
I usually worked with three students at a table, frequently at different grade levels. I was usually assigned different subjects to teach during a lesson hour. Some students taking writing, study skills and SATprep were given assignments from books, while most reading and math students were working on i-Pads. My supervisors were very supportive and – more... they always appreciated suggestions for improving instruction. My co-workers were a delight. We helped each other out throughout the day. We really functioned as a team and we frequently socialized outside of work. The hardest part of the job for me was table management. It was often challenging to teach guided practice to one student while making sure that the other two students working independently were always on-task. The greatest pleasure I got was watching the confidence levels of students increase and to see how proud they were when their grades in school steadily improved. I can honestly say that the teachers at our learning center really got positive results for our efforts and we performed an important service for the community. – less
