Good pay, rewarding work, sense of fulfilment and the ability to work independently.Cons
As a Saturday school teacher, a great deal of the work is done in your own time - report writing, marking homework, creating lesson plans etc.
The children were sometimes tricky to deal with - however the small class sizes of 10 or less helped with this. You were thrown into the deep end in regards to teaching, as this was before they had created materials to help new teachers. But overall excellent experience.RecommendsPositive Outlook
