Student (Full-time) (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – June 10, 2017
Continuing my education is the best thing for myself and for anyone who wants to go beyond high school. Victor Valley College is a school with no frills, settled in the high desert. I took one of my courses in a trailer, in dire need of carpet replacement and new chairs and desks. Having said that, Victor Valley College is an excellent school because of its instructors. My biology professor lives in Maryland and flies every weekend to teach in California, saving his weekend for his family. Every instructor I had, loved his/her job teaching. Their passion showed. Junior colleges have some of the best kept secrets: great instructors.

Adjunct Psychology Instructor (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – April 6, 2017
Since I basically did my own thing while working here, I though it was okay. There seemed to be a lot of discord between teachers and administrative staff. I ultimately left because my course assignment changed suddenly without warning to something that did not fit into my schedule.
Instructor (Current Employee) – Victorville, CA – March 6, 2017
Overall a good place to work. Good relationships between staff and management. Hardest part of the job is lack of full time opportunities.Usually one to two classes per semester, 3 hours a week per class. Steady work year in year out.
Tutor (math, english, and basic skills) (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – October 17, 2016
Depending on whether I was in the Basic Skills Lab, the Math Lab, or the Writing Center, I would have different ways and skills to help tutor fellow students. While working here I was going to school at Victor Valley College full time. They allowed for flexible work hours and support from the teachers that oversaw the other tutors. I would either work one-on-one with students to help them understand and conquer the difficulties they were having in their classes/assignments, or I would be able to work in larger groups going over general difficulties that are commonly associated in the rigor of college courses.
Flexible work hours, ability to work with groups or individual students, extremely rewarding

Peer Counselor Adviser (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – January 27, 2016
Working on campus in the EOPS office was key to me getting back to school after 30 plus years. Working to help students get the added help needed to stay in school was very satisfying. Of course when a student didn't do their part and got dropped or denied for the program it was difficult to give them that information.
Assistant Women's Basketball Coach (Current Employee) – Victorville, CA – October 21, 2015
A typical day at work include a 6 days a week practice. We arrive on campus at 6:00am allow the girls to have a 30 min warm up and the execute the practice plan. Each Assistant is assigned a role for that practice and works on executing it with enthusiasm. at the end of practice we re-evaluate how it went and give shout-outs to those who deserve it. Each Coach is also assigned 3-4 girls to have weekly one on one meetings where we as coaches summarize their efforts, give compliments when needed, review plays and film, and help with tutoring.
