Tutor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 16, 2014
Pros: educating children
Cons: not enough time
Great company the work for, they treated me very well. I learned how to be very patient with children. My manager did not pull any punches, she was direct and straight to the point. My co-workers were very professional. The hardest part of the job was trying to complete the lesson in one session. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the children.

Gifted teachers are dedicated to building confidence in students.
Teacher (Former Employee), Tucson, AZOctober 4, 2014
Pros: helpful co-workers and supervisors, motivated students
Cons: part-time work with no benefits
I usually worked with three students at a table, frequently at different grade levels. I was usually assigned different subjects to teach during a lesson hour. Some students taking writing, study skills and SATprep were given assignments from books, while most reading and math students were working on i-Pads. My supervisors were very supportive and they always appreciated suggestions for improving instruction. My co-workers were a delight. We helped each other out throughout the day. We really functioned as a team and we frequently socialized outside of work. The hardest part of the job for me was table management. It was often challenging to teach guided practice to one student while making sure that the other two students working independently were always on-task. The greatest pleasure I got was watching the confidence levels of students increase and to see how proud they were when their grades in school steadily improved. I can honestly say that the teachers at our learning center really got positive results for our efforts and we performed an important service for the community.

Sylvan charges a lot of money per hour per student. You teach 3 kids at a time and get paid very little. Hours are minimal.

It was fun to interact with children but the lesson plans are very scripted and repetitive. The company itself is very unorganized and unhelpful.

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

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.
