"All the people were pretty helpful."
Former EmployeeMathematics Teacher
I taught math and stayed after school for tutoring. What I learned their was having a live band in the morning really did make a difference. Management there, was totally on top of their game. My co-workers were very supportive their. The hardest part of the job their was, going home. In that facility, you could easily get caught up in an after school project and it would be 8pm. The most enjoyable part of the job their was seeing the kids perform on stage like.

"Gold Mine of Southeast"
