    Hello all

    I have contacted my local kumon about volunteering there, which I am told could lead to being paid work in the future, and they have told me to come in for a chat and a trial run.
    Has anyone else worked/volunteered there? What was it like?
    What will I be expected to do?
    What am I supposed to wear?

    Thanks in advance

    I worked at Kumon for almost a year. It was good, the kids I had pretty much always behaved themselves. It's not hard, you just follow their system which may take some time to get used to. I used to go straight from school so wore my (casual) Sixth Form clothes. You'll be marking homework and tests and helping kids if they get stuck. Best of luck and feel free to ask me any questions.

    Ok thank you
    When she says she wants me to come in for a chat, do you think this means an interview?
