    Pros

    Teaching children is rewarding experience, learn a lot from them and vice versa. Management always available to speak to.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre, not many hours available for those seeking full time jobs.

    Advice to Management

    The pay could be increased for teachers. Students pay a lot and teachers are not getting compensated fairly in my opinion. Overall still a great extra job for teachers and others.

    Pros

    Got to work with kids a lot, and working with kids is always* fun.
    Met one of my best friends there.

    Cons

    *Except for when it isn't. Invariably we would get children who clearly should not have been there at all. Behaving poorly, distracting other children, and so on. Unfortunately, there was zero support for this.

    Advice to Management

    You guys need to keep franchises on a tighter leash. The difference in quality between franchises and corporate centers is staggering.
