Assistant in Sydney NSW

Great management, not enough work.
The management was great, but weekly hours at my venue were limited to 3 or 6 hours per week. I feel like my pay was quite low, especially as it came with no benefits. Workloads can be inconsistent, sometimes you have to actively seek out work to do and be left with close to nothing for long periods of time, but at other times you can be overwhelmed with papers to mark.

Alright
My kumon centre had low pay and the boss was bad. There was lots of recording and marking to do and it wasn't worth the yelling or the pay. Would only recommend if you know the boss/if the boss is good

Stressful workplace
Oftentimes stressful as it's a fast-paced environment and the workload is always increasing. Was provided with no training so had to learn from my own mistakes.

Expensive, but potentially worth it
If you as a parent can ensure that lessons go beyond just independent worksheet completion the benefits can be enormous. However, do not be surprised if minimal effort from parent AND student alike results in very minimal reward

Supportive tight knit environment
Straightforward training and the manager was great! Loved my coworkers and the culture is supportive and encourages flexibility and growth. Tasks were also delegated appropriately and suited our interests
