I worked at Brighter Future Learning

Pros

Ok pay if you teach English.

Cons

Math tutors are very underpaid. Management only cares for how many students you can handle at a time. Often times they had me working with too many students so naturally the quality of my work would decline. They care more about getting the students in and out than they do about making the students learn something

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring Brighter Future back to what it used to be which was helping the students LEARN. Not just a way for you to fill your pockets with money so you can drive around with a Porsche.

    I worked at Brighter Future Learning part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I loved working with the kids. The staff was great too. I got to work with kids from age 7 to 17 and all math subjects from arithmetic to pre-calc.

    Cons

    The hours weren't great. It's an after school program so the day didn't start til around 2 pm or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach compound interest. This is one of the most important subjects in math in my opinion. I was supposed to skip this section but I taught it anyway.

    I worked at Brighter Future Learning part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    working with children is always fun and challenging. I met some wonderful kids and I gained some knowledge on effective teaching habits with children.

    Cons

    The upper management does not care in the least bit if your child is learning or really grasping the grammar and writing concepts. They would copy STAR testing practice booklets and then sell the copies for five dollars per. When I asked my manager if doing this were legal she responded "I don't think I'm going to answer that" and changed the subject.
    The owner also told me that I had to "brainwash" the children into thinking grammar is fun. The learning material is stagnant and boring. I was never allowed to stray from the written script they give you. The work is busy work that keeps your children doing something instead of really learning and there is absolutely no room for the children to be creative with their writing. The kids were painfully bored and when I asked my manager if we could bring some more age appropriate reading material in she said it would be too difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should try to make the classes more engaging and creative. For now they are dull and lifeless which is why the enrollment has drastically declined.
