dense and tense

the entire environment was awfully stressful, i had no guidance to adjust and learn, when i asked for help, i was met with unprofessional manners. a atypical day at work, a different tutor and i would come in and set up where she did her best to help me whereas the manager of the Kumon always came in late and left without any kind of staff communication and did not even inform me of renumeration. I enjoyed working with the kids and helping them adjust to their work. other than that, working at Kumon was not a good experience.

Baie goeie werksplek

Goeie mense met n passie vir kinders wat bereid is om alles in te sit om die kinders te help. Die werk wat die kinders doen of kry is uitstekend veral die verskillende vlakke wat n mens kry

No Growth

Worked for four years with no growth it’s more about gaining experience not a job to build a career if you have a family one would not be able to survive

Productive and fun workplace.

Typically we start the day by marking and reviewing the work the kids have done on previous days. When the kids arrive we give them classwork, homework and corrections that they have to do. After they have done everything we do a backpage with them, which means that we see how well they can think on their feet. These backpages differ depending on what subject they are doing: Maths or English or both.

Pros

Very close to where I live.

Cons

May get frustrated if I do not know how to help a specific child.

Supportive and positive work environment

Working closely with staff to ensure the improvement of a child’s ability in maths and English is very rewarding. The staff work well together and we all have the same goal. To improve our service for the betterment of the child. My boss has passion for teaching that she shares with her staff and keeping the largest Kumon Centre in South Africa operating at its optimum is a team effort.

Pros

Making a difference in a child’s life, cake once a month

My own business

As this was my own business it is hard to rate. The overall business was teaching children which was a bonus for me. The reason i stopped was due to the competition in the area.

It will do for now.

KUMON is a good working environment, although considering the salary and benefits it is a " temporary" kind of job. I do however enjoy working with the children and my colleagues.

Fun filled days with excellent children.

No 2 days are the same. Very dynamic and fun. If you don't like children this is definitely not for you. This is a mental draining job. Needs of students are always changing.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Can get extremely busy
