Great Experience, Relaxed Environment
Teacher (Current Employee) – Harlingen, TX – March 23, 2017
I like working with Sylvan. The students are great, and it's so much easier and more effective to teach in small groups; you won't get anymore than three students per session. The teachers there are semi-retired, recent graduates, taking time off from their regular school jobs, or just couldn't go on working in a traditional school setting. Whatever the reasons, they all seem to enjoy working with Sylvan.
Although the schedule is flexible and you get to pick your hours, there aren't any benefits for tutors, there's no guarantee of the amount of hours you will get, and there's no vacation or sick days. So I would only recommend Sylvan as a means of supplementing your income or gaining experience.
During the school year, Sylvan is open as a an after-school program plus Saturday school, but their hours extend during the summer so it makes a good summer job too.
great experience, relaxed envirnoment, support
