The kids were great, the company..not so much
Tutor (Current Employee), Algonquin, ILJuly 22, 2014
It was fun to interact with children but the lesson plans are very scripted and repetitive. The company itself is very unorganized and unhelpful.

Center Director (Former Employee), Louisville, KYJuly 15, 2014
Sylvan is a Great tool for students who need to catch up and those that want to get ahead. I believe strongly in the product but the management at my center was terrible. The cost keeps many students from being able to attend but it is worth the money

English tutor (Former Employee), Johnston, IAJuly 14, 2014
Pros: bonus money for not needing a sub
Cons: job ends when summer vacation starts
I loved to sit with the kids and teach them new things. I loved seeing the looks on their faces when they finally understood the lesson. And I love the bonds that you develop with the students.

I enjoyed my experience at Sylvan and working with the wonderful students. I worked here while i was completing my Masters, they were flexible with my schedule, assisted me with school work, and provided effective studying tips! I couldn't have been blessed with a better place to work.

Student Center Assistant (Puller) (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXJune 9, 2014
Pros: worked two weekends a month
Cons: on your feet the entire time
Typical day at work consisted of pulling assignments for the teachers and students, and assisting the teachers with any help they needed. I learned that teaching isn't for me, although working with the teachers and assistant directors was a learning experience. Watching the students learn something and finally seeing them achieve it, is a great feeling.

Tutoring children of all ages
Center, teacher (Former Employee), Westminster, MDJune 9, 2014
All materials were put out for us in advance so that we could come in and prepare for the session. Occasionally we would have to set up our own stations if the director got overwhelmed, but it was a good learning experience.

Unreliable management but rewarding environment with children
Site Coordinator/Tutor (Current Employee), Bay AreaMay 29, 2014
Pros: great pay, interesting work sites, great students, very creditable.
Cons: bad communication, not enough hours, unreliable management support system
Sylvan is not as organized and efficient as the commercials suggest it is. There is not concern for the children who need extra help within the large group, if the students complete their homework, if the students actually understand the material or if parents are involved in the students learning process. Unfortunately there are a lot of changes that – more... need to be made for the Sylvan program to excel like it should. – less

Teacher/Tutor (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDMay 13, 2014
Pros: great staff, flexible hours
Cons: many computer malfunctions
This was a part time job. I loved teaching all ages of students, especially in language arts. I also enjoyed testing new students. Management was fantastic, along with fellow colleagues. I learned that no matter how old a student is, learning happens.
