Pros: bosses understand a student's schedule and will not overwhelm you, being able to use my skills for future jobs, working with a student is a rewarding experience.
◆A typical day of work includes getting to my student's class before it starts and getting out the materials I will need to take notes. During the class, I take notes for the lecture as I would in my own class while adding or fixing anything my student feels necessary. If there is an assignment or test during the class period, I write only what my student – more... tells me to and nothing more, as directed by my bosses. After class is over my student's notes must be typed in whatever format requested, edited, and sent as soon as possible.
◆I have learned from this job how to meet deadlines and work as an individual.
◆The managers are the best I have ever had. Very considerate, trusting, and kind. For example, I have to document my own hours and turn in my time sheet and they have praised me about being the only aide they don't have to call to remind to turn in my timesheet on time.
◆The hardest part about this job is attempting to keep up with some teacher's lectures that are scattered in nature. Having to type them later in an organized fashion without missing anything can be time consuming.
◆The most enjoyable part of this job is being able to utilize my typing skills, transcription skills, and interacting with wonderful bosses and students alike. – less
