Productive and Fun Workplace and Environment
Tutor (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON10 April 2018
Working at Oxford has taught me a lot about different means to interact with children who have various learning abilities and disabilities. The workplace is vibrant and bright, everyone is extremely friendly, and overall it is a very positive working environment.
The hardest part of the job is multi-tasking and teaching up to 3 kids at the same time, but it is enjoyable, as it gives you the opportunity to see the children improving in front of your eyes.

Fun and rewarding place to work.
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Orangeville, ON28 February 2018
Aside from the poor hours, I loved being able to grow as an educator and help others improve their knowledge and learning skills. Working with kids can be challenging at times but the work is so rewarding when you finally see your work take hold.

Productive and fun workplace.
Volunteer Tutor (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON7 February 2018
I spent my high school volunteer hours at Oxford. A typical day was spent helping students, usually in grades 2-4, with subjects like Math and English. In the afternoon the younger children, from kindergarten to grade 1, spent the rest of their summer camp day with us and again it was helping with their learning and their workbooks. I provided an extra hand, therefore while I was with one student, the teacher was with another. And when parents started to show up to pick up their kids, we offered a break from work and some card games or colouring activities.

Great place to work
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON6 May 2017
Great place to work if you want part-time, rewarding work in education. Since the centres are franchised, wages and busyness are not the same from location to location.
Pros
Flexible hours, competitive wages
Cons
Teaching not full-time.

Each Oxford location is run dependent on their management, the management can make or break the location. Overall, the kids make the job and are often times wonderful.

Dedicated Staff and Effective Program
Teacher and Programming Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON8 January 2017
Staff are passionate, articulate and driven to provide quality education to the student body! Everyone in the office works in conjunction with one another to make students and families from all demographic walks of life feel comfortable. Highlights of my day include when a student who was formally struggling with a concept, begins to understand how to apply what they have learned in class. It is definitely a rewarding feeling to know that I have been able to positively impact the learning of a student.

Too focused on acronyms to teach kids, needed to adapt more to various teaching and learning styles. Too quick to label.
Tutor (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON11 December 2015
The typical day had me come in and spend an hour with students, a maximum of four, with exercise booklets in Math and Language. The most enjoyable was working and laughing with the students.
