assistant (Current Employee) – Harold Wood, Greater London – 2 February 2018
Liaising with parents and dealing with children of various abilities. Gave me good inter-personal skills and understanding of a work place. However communications between manager and co- workers in this instance needed much improvement.
Assistant (Current Employee) – Birmingham – 11 November 2017
I currently work at a Kumon centre where I have the responsibility of sorting out children's work and marking it. It is a lovely working environment and would recommend it to any young people who are looking for a part time job. I found this job very convenient during my A levels as it never clashed with exam season and management was always lenient if had to take a day off for an exam.
Great Experience and good communication and confidence boost
Assistant (Current Employee) – Charlton, Greater London – 9 August 2017
I have enjoyed working at Kumon study centre and truly believe it has enhanced and equipped me to take on more opportunities that I may face. Kumon has allowed me to become an efficient and patient worker whilst developing my communication skills.
Pick Up on key skills needed for a working environment
Good working environment, at a fast working pace. I would mark children's maths and english work, and I learnt how to do this at a fast pace. It was pressuring at the beginning but it got easier as I became more experienced.
Assistant (Former Employee) – Coventry, ENG – 3 February 2016
Typical day at work usually starts with setting up the class and then going to the marking table to do administrative work. I learned how to set a situation to live up to expected health and safety standards. co-workers are friendly and willing to teach new assistants
Assistant (Current Employee) – Hereford, ENG – 14 October 2015
I've learnt how to be part of a team and have gained communication skills. Not only by working with the other assistants and instructor but with working with the kids and sometimes their parents. Great Management and co-workers.
Assistant (Current Employee) – Stevenage – 8 April 2014
a typical day at my work will differ from day to day. On a monday i will sit on a table with around 5/6 children between the ages of 4-10 helping them with their English and Maths work. This is under timed conditions ensuring each child is happy, safe and comfortable. On Tuesdays I sit with another assistant and mark work given in from children and then grade it in folders. Once it has been graded I organise it into folders, put it in alphabetical order and file it. On Saturdays I also mark and grade work whilst managing 'number-boards' which I am also in charge of. This has taught me how to manage between responsibilities.
