Pros: flexible hours, good co-workers and management
As a student and employee, I have enjoyed my time at Alvernia University.
Since I am a per diem tutor, I come in whenever I am needed to help students accomplish their coursework.
I have learned how to help others while they are struggling through difficult tasks and the skills necessary to help them advance their learning abilities.
Management was flexible, friendly, and helpful.
My co-workers were also hospitable, friendly, and energetic.
The hardest part of the job involved explaining concepts that were difficult, even for me to understand when I was taking the particular course. Because I struggled in that area, it helped me understand what other students were feeling, and I was able to help them understand the material faster than when I was alone.
The most enjoyable part of the job involved seeing a student walk away from a session knowing more than what they did coming into the Learning Center,
