Productive/Exciting learning experience with students.
Avid Tutor (Former Employee) – Trona, CA – August 25, 2015
Classes would turn in TRF papers for tutorial sessions. Tutors would document which students turned in papers on time for the day while students set up desks into two groups. From there the tutors would separate the students into those groups based on school subjects. Each tutor was in charge of their own group. This is when the specialized AVID tutorial process begins; students present their questions, the tutor leads the other students in asking questions to help student presenter find the answer to their own questions. The process is repeated until all students have presented or time runs out. Tutor then collects TRF papers and notes to grade at the end of the day. Finally, once the bell rings and the students are gone, all tutors ad the classroom Avid advisor sit down to discuss the day (who is/isn't struggling, turning in work, paying attention, improving, etc.).
For me the hardest part of the job was to find ways to help students in their own issues without being able to read their own source material.
The most enjoyable part was relating to all students in a professional but friendly manner. It truly helped me gain respect among the students which made for very smooth interactions and tutorial sessions.
