I worked at Explore Learning part-time (More than a year)
Great staff and work environment
Must be able to work weekends
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Explore Learning.
Applied online and was called around a month later for a quick phone interview. Was quite easy as she asked generic question and was then called for an assessment day a month later. The assessment day included a group activity, maths and english test, an interview and working with the kids. Was going really well until I had to work with the children. The other candidates had the chance before me when there were around 5 kids, however, during my turn there were only 2 left (a boy and a girl). The girl was already talking to a tutor so I spoke to the boy who was reading chapters for english and had not yet started to answer any questions. I spoke to him for about 5 minutes and was then given feedback and was told that I needed to praise the child more, however, he was only reading the chapter. I was also told I needed to interact with the girl more who was speaking to a tutor the whole time I was with the boy and I felt rude interrupting. When the interviewer was giving the feedback I felt as if she didn't take into account what the children were doing which was rather annoying. After the feedback, I got the chance to talk to the girl who was doing a maths activity and I took into account the feedback and was actually able to praise her because she was doing questions and answering the right.
I heard back a few days later and was not given the job because I didn't praise the children enough, which made me rather annoyed because there were only 2 kids and one of them was already talking to a tutor and the other was reading. Felt as if they just used any excuse not to give me the job which put me off. I also have lots of experience working with children as a tutor so that was not the problem
