ProsSylvan is an easy job as long as you have the patience. Teachers are buffered by employers from parents which makes it less annoying.

ConsAs with any teaching position, especially teaching young children, it can be quite difficult to manage students who are uninterested in learning the material.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
