After School Tutor (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 11, 2018
Kids need daily assistance with homework. The hardest part of this job is getting them to settle down. The culture of the workplace is to make sure the children have a clear understanding of how to do their work in whatever subject is presented.
Program Coordinator (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – December 26, 2017
I love that this jobs allow one to evolve creatively, in terms of, your ideas matter. However, this company is highly unorganized, and things tend to fall into place at the last minute. So if you're okay with picking the ball up once it has dropped, then this place will be a ball for you. Very supportive staff, and a pleasurable work environment, you will never get bored.
After school all stars is an fair and amazing place to work and that you would always have to work and never stop at all times
Internship (Former Employee) – Newark, NJ – July 3, 2017
Going into the job you are greeted then while the students enter you have to make sure that you are doing your job all the time. I learned that at a working environment it can be easy to get lazy but when working you can't be like that. From the supervisor and co-workers everyone is fair and there to help each other. Everybody there gets along and help is always there. The hardest part on the job is to keep an eye on all students. The most enjoyable is when lunch time because you can talk and spend time with the students .
Free lunches, great people to work with, and students make you smile
No breaks, you have to constantly keep an eye on students
Program Leader (Former Employee) – Keaau, HI – May 27, 2017
This program provides a safe, supervised place for middle school children to interact and do their homework. There are a variety of activities for students to do while at the after school program. Staff are given some flexibility in the way they interact and teach students, but are given support from a supervision in the event that an issue arises.
Every Tuesday, as a student at the NJIT Honors College, I volunteered to mentor at a school in Newark for After School All Stars. It was a blast as I was able to help young students learn the wonders of science and teach them about the STEM field as a whole.
Program Leader (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA 90007 – October 31, 2016
A typical day at work included preparing for my lesson plan of the day. I learned that working with middle school students required lots of patience and a lot of self discipline. My co workers were all supportive of each other. Hardest part of the job was dealing with different personalities with students. My most enjoyable part of this job was getting to know students with similar backgrounds as myself.

Music Instructor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 9, 2014
This program helps out students who need something to do after school. Whether it is tutoring and homework help, or finding a hobby. As the Instructors Aide, it was my job to help out the newer kids who joined the music program. We would introduce ourselves and our musical interests, no matter how random the group was, we all found something in common. We would then get everyone on an instrument based on prior experience. I would take the students with prior knowledge of musical instruments. We would then go ahead and practice, whether we practiced a song, or learned new notes or even create a simple rhythm. The most enjoyable part of working there would have to be being able to play music with others who share the same passion. However, there are those days where some students would show up and not have an interest in the program.
Coach (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – July 24, 2014
A typical day at this camp was always fun regardless of the weather because it was our job as workers to make it fun for us and the campers. The mornings and end of the day meetings were the only parts of the job that were the same on a daily basis. Besides that every day with the campers held a new task and new story for me to remember each day. What I really enjoyed about this camp outside of how much fun it was, was that the bosses and people who funded and ran the camp from behind the scenes were very appreciative of their workers and would promote people accordingly. My first 2 years I was just a camp counselor and helped anyone that needed the help. Then I was promoted to Head Basketball coach and stayed at that position for the last 3 years. It was more responsibility because instead of just helping I was now the person who planned out the activities that were going to played when campers were in my session and much more. The hardest part of the job would have to be keeping all the kids entertained in a safe fun manner. This is because many kids would come in to camp complaining about how it was to hot, or they don't like basketball or wearing open toed sandals instead of running sneakers. Though I was able to work around all these obstacles and get them to enjoy the game through different sorts of drills rather than playing games. This camp helped me grow as a man and the biggest lesson I have learned from working this camp is always bring your A game to work and leave all outside problems outside of work.
Youth Instructor (Former Employee) – Campbell, CA – July 6, 2014
This job was part time. I was unable to return the next year because I needed full time work. Co-workers were great. Most were college students studying early education with the hopes of eventually being teachers. A typical day started just before regular school let out and consisted of handing out snacks to the students who were enrolled in the program, monitoring and helping with homework and yard monitor during play time. Keeping control of the class was sometime difficult. The hardest part of the job was knowing that I would not be able to return for the new semester for personal reasons. The most enjoyable part was working with elementary school students. I had worked with high school students before, not the same. I learned that working with younger kids is harder than I thought, but rewarding especially when someone comes and repeats something you told them and then you know they got it.
Fun working with children
It was and would always be a part time position. I needed full time.
Activity Leader/Tutor (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 1, 2014
Once I was assigned at the school I was going to work in, i supervised the kids while they did homework. If they needed help I would help them then when they were done. We often did activities which then I would help set up and monitor them during the acitivities. I really enjoyed working here, the whole place was very laid back. The hardest part was probably having to be a bit strict with the kids to make sure they weren't goofing off or causing trouble when we escorted them back to their classrooms. I learned to communicate better with my co-workers to make sure things ran smoothly. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you helped someone with their homework and made them feel better about themselves when you were able to teach them something.
