High School Tutor, Upward Bound (Current Employee), Duluth, MNApril 18, 2015
Working with at-risk high school students is a rewarding job. I tutor students in a variety of subjects including algebra, geometry, chemistry, biology, history, and study skills. I work independently, which is a good fit for me. My supervisors check in every once in a while, but they trust that I am doing a good job.
