English and Maths Tutor (Former Employee) – St. Margarets and North Twickenham – 21 June 2018
If you are new to working and are looking for a part-time job, this is a great pace to start. The pay is not great but the working environment is quite relaxed. However, this does mean that shifts/hours go by slowly.
Assistant Tutor (Former Employee) – Wolverhampton – 21 June 2018
A typical day at work would consist of coming in and marking the students work and also having them read a section of a book to you. i learned that students are very good at understanding. The hardest part was getting the students work marked on time as there was so much to do and not enough staff to handle all the work. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the children and making their education fun and engage the students to want to learn.
Tutor (Former Employee) – Chingford – 12 June 2018
I learned how to establish command while maintaining a friendly environment with the children I was teaching. There was always some banter between the tutors which was a nice release from the younger kids. It was very rewarding being able to teach children.

At Kumon there is always something to do as a private tutor. Students are encouraged to enhance their mental maths and proficiency in Literacy skills. The role helps you advance in your explanation skills a great deal as young students always need tailored advice. Overall, brilliant teaching experience!
only two hours, easy to fit around a busy schedule
Tutor (Current Employee) – Bromley – 2 February 2018
Kumon is a very busy work environment full of both students and other teaching assistants. The hardest part of the job is dealing with are the students as you never know what to expect out of them. I really enjoyed working with the students. I learnt to be confident in myself and learnt different ways to deal with probems.

I enjoyed the job role of working with children and being able to not only teach but inspire these young minds.Working with children also allowed me to learn the importance of creating a positive work environment and work effectively and efficiently with other colleagues.
Tutor (Former Employee) – Abbey Wood – 20 September 2017
A typical day at kumon would consist of the students bringing in their work from the previous week to be marked and initiating the work set for the following week. when students get stuck, it is the tutors job to not provide the answer but push the student to think about what the answer may be.
Tutor (Current Employee) – Willesden Green – 4 September 2017
A great place to work when starting in the tutoring industry. As most centres are open twice a week it is easy to fit working here into a busy schedule. I am very lucky to have a great boss who is very supportive, furthermore I enjoy working with the children and seeing them progress.
Tutor (Former Employee) – Slough, Berkshire – 4 September 2017
Loved working with the kids, working with people who make your job enjoyable and stress free is great. Seeing the children benefit from your help is so rewarding and a boost, made me love my job even more.
Tutor (Former Employee) – Stanmore, Greater London – 10 July 2017
It wasn't a boring job as there were many children there who brought laughter to the centre and it was different everyday. I learnt how to communicate with younger children and how one might see things on their level. At times, management was a bit shaky when the centre was busy and I think they struggled with handling certain children or went the wrong way about it, but the majority of the time it was okay. The staff were nice to work with and it made the workplace a nice place to work even though the salary wasn't good. It was a nice stopgap between school and university.
Kumon isn't a job which will pay for that brand new car you want, but it's a great way to help those that need it and enjoy yourself whilst doing so. It keeps you alert and in touch with different genres of people and the following generations. The work isn't demanding yet still requires dilligence and commitment and the pay is just a compliment to a very satisfying and intrinsically rewarding job.
