French tutor at a College level
French Tutor (Former Employee) – Hammond, IN – July 12, 2016
I essentially worked for Purdue Northwest's Student Academic Support as a French tutor for a year. Three days a week for anywhere between 1-3 hours at a time, I would sit in the foreign language lab and tutor college level students learning the French language, from beginners to intermediate. This would be anything from reading and writing to basic pronunciation and grammar rules. The department was amazingly flexible with my work schedule, as I was a full-time undergraduate, and it was a huge help. I felt I had not only helped my fellow peers but that I found myself understanding more of the language myself. I had very little coworkers as we weren't scheduled much at the same time, but they seemed very nice when we would all attend the frequent team-building sessions. The hardest part of the job was not being able to answer certain questions right off the top of your head, but there's no greater reward than helping the student find the answer and learning it together, which I would have to say is the most enjoyable part of the job.

There wasn't really any room for growth or benefits.
