Fun, dynamic atmosphere with high quality students
University Tutor (Former Employee) – Glasgow, SCT – 19 May 2015
As a tutor to first year students in the department of chemistry at the University of Strathclyde my responsibilities included; providing the new students with a tour of the faculty, detailing which equipment to buy for the teaching laboratory, and promptly responding to general enquires from the students.
I gained valuable experience in communicating with the younger generation, determining what they required from their tutor and providing the best service possible to meet their expectations.
I was working independently from the faculty and fellow tutors therefore I managed myself, taking care to ensure I was fulfilling the expectations of both the students and the academics that offered me this opportunity.
The hardest part of the job would be determining what the student wants. Some students wanted me to reach out to them, others wanted to be left alone unless they were falling behind in their lessons. Finding the balance was the hardest aspect of the job.
The best part of the job was knowing my efforts were not in vain, by enriching the lives of the latest generation of Glasgow students.
Laid back atmosphere, pleasure to work with, students are very appreciative
