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

Sylvan charges a lot of money per hour per student. You teach 3 kids at a time and get paid very little. Hours are minimal.

Tutor (Current Employee), Algonquin, ILJuly 22, 2014
It was fun to interact with children but the lesson plans are very scripted and repetitive. The company itself is very unorganized and unhelpful.

Sylvan is a Great tool for students who need to catch up and those that want to get ahead. I believe strongly in the product but the management at my center was terrible. The cost keeps many students from being able to attend but it is worth the money

English tutor (Former Employee), Johnston, IAJuly 14, 2014
Pros: bonus money for not needing a sub
Cons: job ends when summer vacation starts
I loved to sit with the kids and teach them new things. I loved seeing the looks on their faces when they finally understood the lesson. And I love the bonds that you develop with the students.
