A much cherished institution
The work centres around the build-up before assignment deadlines. It is a great opportunity to flex those communication skills. I have learned a lot about clarity, resolving ambiguity that can transpire in instructions given out for essays. I provide practical and moral support to distance learners, connecting and breaking down social isolation, this job requires empathy, liaising and problem-solving skills. This is my second year of providing this consultancy for The Open University for my final course in linguistics at the OU, I particularly enjoy the satisfaction of enabling others to achieve their aims.
