Featured Review

Former Employee - Administrative Assistant

I worked at Sylvan Learning Centers part-time for more than a year

Pros

The Management and employees were pleasant to work with and genuinely cared about each other and the children they were entrusted with.

Cons

The only down side was my inability to carry high school textbooks that were extremely large and heavy.

Advice to Management

A cart on wheels would have made this job so much easier since the high school textbooks were shifted every hour to different tables in the classroom.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Kumon part-time for less than a year

Pros

Good as a part time job for current students

Cons

Some children might not be easy to handle
