Tutoring Position Leads to Great Skill Development
CRLA Certified Mathematics Tutor (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – April 13, 2018
There are slow days and fast days, this typically mirrors the exam schedule of the university or college. This can make it difficult as a student employee since there are personal exams and projects that need to be worked on but you're busy helping others with their stuff. But this is not too bad as long as you can master time management skills and keep things organized in your schedule. There is not "typical day" as a tutor, each day is pretty different from the next. The drop in layout of the centers is a great aspect of the job, though when the area is full with student you have to stand the whole time. Taught me great skills in active listening, patience, how to develop and run workshops, as well as problem solving (both mathematics based and human based).
The fellow tutors and the staff of the center are great to work with, everyone learns from everyone.
Often made to help with a topic that skills were not strong in, causing anxiety and annoyance for both parties.
