Resident aid (Former Employee) – Tallahassee, FL – June 4, 2013
wake you get the students ready for breakfast the escort them to there first class of the day then escort them to the lunchroom for lunch and escort and participate in any extra curricular activities that are planed by the staff. I learned that to get student to become interested in something you must first show interest and have patience with them. Management did a great job with planning and communicating with the staff and students. My co workers and i were a team we always had a plan for last minute changes. The hardest part to me was not having enough activities for the students to do on campus. The most enjoyable part for me was chill time with the students, being able to mentor some of them and liesting to there aspersions on what they want to do in life.
This experience gave me the opportunity to work with 9th-12th grade students who were less privedged. I was able to interact with them and also help them get through some tough times. The participants respected me and I am still in contact with many of them.
Tutoring High School students in all academic subjects
Tutor (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – March 17, 2013
Upward Bound taught me alot about how to work with high school students. While working here, I tutored high school students in all academic subjects. I had extensive training in courses related to youth and youth development and have been able to apply that knowledge outside of Upward Bound. My coworker and management were hard working and always willing to work alongside peers if needed. The hardest part of the job was working with students who didn't care about their academics. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with students who applied themselves and got accepted into college.
flexible work schedule for college students, co-workers and management
