MTCS (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 January 2016
The children are a joy to work with, and I find it extremely enjoyable to be able to teach them various subjects during homework help time. However there is very minimal hours with which to make a living, and I find management to be a dread to work with. Often they seem more concerned about looking out for themselves as oppose to their employees.
In all honesty you are likely to learn more from the children than the adults in this job position, and is a great job for those of us looking to gain comfort in working with children.

Volunteer Mentor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 February 2019
I would walk in once school ended and take the attendance right away to see how many kids we would be working with on that day, we would then distribute the snack for the day accordingly. Homework was what was done immediately after snack to make sure that the kids wouldn't fall behind on their school responsibilities. On average about 4-5 kids would need help on a daily basis, you would have to help while watching the other kids to make sure nothing bad is happening. After homework, the kids would either play in the gym or outside so I would need to supervise them and lead any games or activities being played. The average workload daily is very demanding but still fun and teaches very essential and beneficial work skills.
