Tutor (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 25, 2018
A typical day at work would normally consist of lesson planning, extra practice work, and collaborative curriculum to teachers. I learned to put love into working with kids and to be patient with the different personalities that they have. Also, I learned different methods of teaching curriculum....some fast, some slow, some strategic. My supervisor was highly encouraging to all of her employees, emphasizing patience and hard work. The hardest part of the job was helping each student to reach passing and excellent standards while each student learns at different levels, helping them to reach that same level by the time or before each semester ends. The most enjoyable part of the job was the Life Skills class I taught, or the Basketball coaching I took part in in the After school program.
