Tutor (Current Employee), New York, NY – October 31, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule, fun and young environment
Cons: no benefits
Usually we had appointments with students for tutoring. Three times a week I was part of the walk-in in Italian subject. I learned how to deal with young students , and sometimes with learning disabilities. I learned how to encourage them in hard moments, to never give up, and to believe that everyone has a different way to learn, and we all can learn – more... if we have a good teacher or someone that believe in us. Management was really organized, their first concern was to train us in the right way, and they were really understandable about our schedule, they always tried to fulfill our needs. All co-workers were students, following their dreams, working hard, and in their spare time were helping other students in difficult and challenging subjects. The hardest part of the job was to deal with students did not want to put to much effort and pretend we had to do the job for them. The most enjoyable part was to students graduating because I helped and push them to do not give up, or passing the course with an A! – less

The people that work at FIT are fun and care about the students that go there. Time after time I've seen staff go above and beyond to help students with problems that they may encounter while living on campus or attending classes. The people in ResLife are supper friendly and very accommodating.

I enjoy being a tutor here, the supervisors are nice and most of the students and fellow tutors are as well. A great place to help people and keep your own knowledge/skills current so that you don't forget information you learned during your own coursework.
