Reading and Math Instructor (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 9, 2017
Worked at 3 different schools which was challenging but very educational. I learned how to incorporate into various environments with different cultural values. However, I loved my job and working with students who required additional assistance to achieve higher test results, which they did.

Title I Reading and Math Teacher (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 10, 2017
Learn It Systems is a great company to work for. It gave me a chance to advance my teaching skills. The supervisors work closely with the employees to ensure that teachers are meeting the requirements needed to have a successful classroom environment and to ensure learning. I highly recommend this company to aspiring teachers.
Manager (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – January 19, 2015
Learn It Systems has a lot of growth potential in many roles. The company has purchased several new companies to foster rapid growth. Overall the management team is younger so work life balance is easier to obtain than some organizations. Workload can be heavy at times with certain the positions. Often working well over 40 hours per week. Benefit and PTO package are adequate. Very friendly and professional upper management. Pay scale seems fair.
Program Aide (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 9, 2014
Working with the children was awesome. I had 3 to 4 students a day and they would tell me a typical day with there friends and teacher. Sometimes they would get mad and wouldn't want to do there work. But i would speak and let them tell me what was bothering them pulling them to the side and having the student talking made them feel better. The students would get happy when they would get the answer right. If one of my co workers students didn't come in they would help me.
Head Tutor (Former Employee) – Evans, CO – March 24, 2014
It was a temporary position and work hours never lasted more than 3 hours long. We walked the elementary students down to a local complex and taught them there after setting up the tables for the day. We gave them snacks - provided by the Learn It staff, who were also on site and helped walk the students over. We let the students take breaks and play, especially a lot more at the end of the 12 week period, after they completed their tests.
The hardest part of the job is discipline and for myself, as Head Tutor, getting everyone to keep up on their student's tests scores because occasionally I couldn't scan and e-mail certain student's scores because the regular tutors forgot.
The most enjoyable part was working with the kids.
Site Administatrator (Former Employee) – Suburb of Cleveland – October 28, 2013
I am a former employee and worked in the Cleveland area as a site director. Was told over and over again that we would be licensed and it never happened. Software programs for registration required our parents to use credit cards but they had none so they paid by money order and were never formally registered. Parents were told they had to schedule their days of service on another software program but couldn't do it because their registration was never inputed by upper management. Staff software programs for work hours, e-mail services, student/parent information rarely worked. Passwords given to staff that never worked. Told to enroll children even thoug we were not licensed. Parents were abruptly told that program closed at the end of the day. When I would ask for something or seek an response regarding licensure would be told "we working on it" No follow through on anything that was needed for equipment. Did not evern have a first aid kit. Was told it was on-site and look for it but never found it. When I requested a first aid kit was told it was missing a thermometer so I couldn't have it. Stated that I would put a thermometer in it myself but was told no way. No staff files on site as required by state licensing. No overtimed paid for anyone irregardless of status. Shorted hours on paycheck. Perhaps they meant well but totally were unorganized and never openly discussed issues with me regarding lack of licensure. I have worked for 37 years in the field of early childhood education and never saw such a disorganized company. No tack or integrity when youmore... fail to make the program viable by the failure of upper management to do their jobs. First to license, to provide equipment for classrooms, had to travel 1-2 days a week to turn in paperwork, money orders and pick up snack. Total chaos. One of the most disrepectful, unprofessional companies that I ever worked for. BEWARE of false promises with Learn It. An at-will employer who just drops it on you with no prior notice. Has made a very bad name for themselves in this area of Cleveland. They do not have a clue of what they should be doing and they blame it on failure to go out and get families to enroll. Well you can't enrolll children whose parents have vouchers when vouchers are only given to centers with licenses. If a parent is eligible for vouchers and do not use them after requesting them they will lose their eligibility. Duh, 95% of the families in my community are on welfare and use vouchers for assistance. It doesn't take a genius to know that enrollment can't be increased with these kind of barriers and then staff are blamed for not going out to get new familes. A totally unorganized, unprofessional, lacking class organization. I was notified by a text message that my program would be closed at the end of the day. How pathetic!less
Only positive is the training that was provided
Everything under the sun. How can you even open a center up when it is not even licensed?
Program aid (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 18, 2013
A typical day at work for me was looking over children before and after program as well as making sure all paper work was completed. Working for learn it iv learned so much from how to improve working as a team to interacting with the children and building a friendship with them. My coworkers were great we always worked together and were always one step ahead with our work. The hardest part of my job would be the ending of program when there would be children waiting hours for their parents and seeing the terrified look on their little faces. I must say the most enjoyable part of the job was hanging and interacting with the children.
