Comfortable and motivating atmosphere with great staff and resources for students
Pros: flexible hours and objectively measurable results
As a Trio Tutor, I provided one-on-one personalized math and English tutoring with little to no supervision. My boss and the career specialists I worked with were all incredibly knowledgeable and great to work with.
Each quarter, I typically met with 10-15 students weekly. I tailored lessons according to each of the student's unique learning style – more... and needs. Some of my duties included guiding students through homework problems, assisting with test and report preparation, and demonstrating how to solve math problems to groups of students in the open learning lab. In addition, I helped a career specialist develop instructional materials for algebra, geometry, and statistics courses.
The most enjoyable part of the job was witnessing the joy and increased confidence of students once they were able to successfully pass a test or class. – less
