Friendly and supportive team but program was poorly structured
Intern/Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 8, 2018
East Harlem Tutorial Program is a great program for the kids when it comes down to education. However, it is not fun. The activities can get boring and repetitive. The teachers you work with are supportive and helpful. Although, the overall program itself needs more structure regarding class structure as well as consistent rules for the children. Usually, there is some form of change that disappoints the students and teachers. dealing with change is normally the hardest part of the job because then the teachers responsibility is to implement the changes in which the students are not use to. This job is not hard. The kids are great as they are filled with life and joy. The most enjoyable part of working here is being able to connect and build new memories with the students.
Assistant Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 1, 2012
I worked at East Harlem Tutorial from 1992 through 1996. I started my association with EHTP initially as a volunteer. I was quickly recruited to work with the after-school program. During that time I became directly responsible for developing and maintaining the database for all participants aged 6-12. I also created and delivered training to volunteer tutors nightly and on weekends.
The most fun I had was during summers in the Day Camp program. I was responsible for Social Studies and Science and developed a curriculum each summer that integrated the two. My team and I ensured that the curriculum was inclusion, socially and culturally based and included fun science projects that taught our youth the environment and our responsibility to it. We incorporated important films as well that showed how the work of others helps.
great executive staff, easy hours, great compensation
