    I have been working at Kumon Group part-time

    Pros

    Leadership is great and flexible.
    The students are fantastic and fun to work with.
    Some students can be challenging, but getting through to them is very rewarding.
    It is beneficial to know some upper level math (up to algebra) in order to work with older students and explain concepts.

    Cons

    This is not meant to be a full time job. It is perfect for college students as it won't take up much of your weekly schedule. Therefore, expect up to about 20 hours.
    Class lets out at 7 pm.
