Overview at Des Moines Area Community College
Database Specialist (Former Employee), Des Moines, IAJanuary 21, 2014
I loved working with students, but on a typical day I was at a desk all day working on the computer. This job taught me how to be a team player, become more responsible, and to be a multi-tasker. The hardest part of the job was we were always under staff, so we all had to learn everyone elses job and help out where needed. The most enjoyable part is – more... seeing the students succeed and move on towards their goal. It's a good feeling when you know you helped someone out. I can pretty much get a long with everyone. I loved working with all my co-workers and it made my job easier and more fun. – less

Learning Experience
Work Study Tutor (Former Employee), Ankeny, IAOctober 8, 2013
Pros: positively influenced my priorities and study skills.
Cons: the job ended when i graduated due to any tutor has to be currently enrolled in order to work.
The overall time as a Tutor with DMACC afforded me a chance to better understand others' learning styles. With this I was able to incorporate multiple levels of approach to each student, with organizational differences as a consideration.

Great Boss
Accounting Tutor (Former Employee), Ankeny, IAJuly 24, 2013
The boss in the Tutoring Center at Des Moines Area Community College was wonderful. I had to have my appendix taken out in the emergency room and I called and left a message once I found out and she rescheduled all my appointments for me without any hesitation

Engaging, Culturally Aware, Developed & Growing.
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee), Ankeny, IADecember 18, 2012
A typical day was spent with an hour or two of preparation for the class, teaching the class & then office hours depending on the needs of the students.

I learned a lot about adapting expectations for the classes I taught & engaging with students that were having troubles. Looking for behavioral differences when students were struggling or excelling.

My – more... relationship with my mentor/head of the department was excellent. We met inside & outside of work to discuss how we could make a better learning environment for our students & how it was important to continually be aware of the technologies of our field & how to implement them into the class room. – less
