I have been working at Daekyo USA part-time (More than a year)
It's nice to work with students. The pre-planned curriculum and books eliminate prep work and seem to follow a logical sequence.
The 3 to 1 student ratio can be discombobulating at times. Too much work is put on the tutor from janitorial duties to secretarial work such as logging students progress.
I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Daekyo USA (Brooklyn, NY) in November 2014.
They were really disorganized while setting up the interview, while scheduling a time for me to come in, and I ended up coming three times for an initial interview because they were all over the place (the first time they didn't even show up). And they had me work a day for free, and were surprised when I left early to go to another job. I don't work for free, that's a ridiculous expectation.
Reasons for Declining
The starting pay was $15.00 an hour, even with a teaching license and full certification. This program teaches rich kids, and I got the distinct impression that the guy running the place was a swindler and a capitalist. I know these parents pay a ton of money to send their kids here, and the teachers only make $15 an hour? Ridiculous.
