    Pros

    flexible scheduling; quality curriculum; challenging teaching experiences; wonderful immediate management team; excellent co-teachers

    Cons

    There were no significant cons. Some students were less cooperative than others, but overall, students were cooperative and often enthusiastic. Parents were supportive.

    Advice to Management

    I do wish that it had been possible to maintain some level of online presence even though the company apparently needed to be restructured.
