Santa Ana College - Tutor
Tutor (Current Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – February 25, 2018
At a typical day, I work with about 5-15 students during a shift. I tutor math, English, and history and am able to fully assess where a student is at before beginning to help them. I've learned how to work with more challenging students and how to become really creative in how to best assist them with their studies. My supervisor and the teachers-on-duty are very helpful in assisting me when I am unsure of how to teach a certain subject. Everyone on staff works to help each other so that way we can best help our students. The hardest part of the job is overcoming the language barrier since majority of our students are Spanish-speaking. Since my Spanish is very limited, we have to get really creative in ways to explain topics to our students. However, it is always so enjoyable when we see our students succeed in finishing their courses and ultimately earning their GEDs.
Supportive staff/management, easy to work with students
Short shifts, if not busy then there is not much to do
