Excellent and rewarding learning experience
Tutor (Former Employee), Riverside, CAApril 3, 2014
Pros: feel like a child again, an imaginative yet educational work environment
Cons: big responsibility to students which can be a pro and con.
I learned how to tutor children in an educational environment where discipline and respect were paramount alongside a friendly and warming culture of growth.

My co-workers were very bright fellow students whom I enjoyed the company of.

My advisers were well-experienced educations.

The hardest part of the job was working with unruly children, but – more... this taught me that no child is the same and that I must approach each one with that in mind and to cater to their individual needs.

The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing a child learn new material and feel proud of his accomplishments. – less

Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Riverside, CAAugust 6, 2012
Pros: great teacher appreciate days.
Cons: hard to find work on the new subfinder-aesop
Once you get to know some of the secretaries you may be able to get work that way, but overall since the new system was implemented it is really hard to work the way one was use to as a Sub.
On a typical day I would teach about 160 students in five different periods. I really enjoy teaching the students easier ways to learn math skills.
Some of the – more... co-workers at each site were ok others were unbearable. Think their better than us Subs because they are teaching full time. – less
