    I worked at Kid's College part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good staff development and helpful member of the team to teach highly interesting enrichment classes.

    Cons

    Parents can not always afford the classes so the classes get cancelled.

    I have been working at Kid's College

    Pros

    Employers were reliable with pay and offered a delicious school lunch to teachers.

    Cons

    Employers were unreliable with expectations regarding amount of curriculum development, classroom management, and even paying unannounced visits to employees apartments just to check up on them (apparently fearing they may quit unannounced, this was according to the owner himself). Note: This was not my experience at the other schools I have worked for in East Asia. Also, some materials and resources essential to carrying out successful lesson plans were not planned for or were deemed too expensive for the school to purchase. This was a weekly concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None

    I worked at Kid's College

    Pros

    It pays a reasonable salary on time and hires with little or no experience. Housing is acceptable though some people get substandard.

    Cons

    work 12 hours+ a day doing side work that should be delegated to assistants. Unpredictable management and snobby clientele, never satisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communication with and between employees and customers, demands should be communicated and not left to fester. have assistants do more that text their boyfriends.
