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!

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

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
