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, as I worked often with advanced students. It was a good experience for me.

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 student recruitment.
