    I worked at Oxford Learning Center part-time

    Pros

    Coworkers and director of the tutoring location were friendly and supportive. Location was bright, cheery and promoted learning. Manager and director at location were very understanding and allowed flexibility in scheduling when possible.

    Cons

    Upper management from the headquarters of the franchise were inflexible and did not provide an adequate depth/breadth of materials to cater to student/client needs. The dearth of learning resources made client retention difficult if a student worked with Oxford for several years.

    Advice to Management

    Headquarters should update their materials and create new resources which expand on skills that students can learn.

    Pros

    Good experience working if you want to pursue teaching. The workbooks are effective for students showing improvement. The environment is also good.

    Cons

    The management is not good at scheduling. After all the training and observation, they had to let me go because of some changes. Also pay is less and not many hours are given.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the tutors more because for some it may be a waste of time.

    I worked at Oxford Learning Center (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hours are compatible with making some extra money on the side while being a student, teacher, or a variety of other jobs
    You work with groups no larger than three students at a time
    The workbooks used by students are proven to be effective and it's rewarding to see the students improve as they work with Oxford long enough

    Cons

    Training is typically overwhelming and teachers are expected to keep track of too much all at once when they are beginning. You will often hear other tutors say that it is overwhelming when you start, and while it's great for there to be plenty of room for improvement, it's a tough standard to impose all at once after an insufficient amount of training
    The students can sometimes have challenging behavioural problems but this applies to most tutoring jobs, management can vary in terms of the quality of support for handling these students

    Advice to Management

    Typically a well-structured and enjoyable work environment, ensure that the Education Coordinators are capable of effectively managing employees
