Great first step in the Academic World
Lecturer (Former Employee), Montréal, QCMay 7, 2015
Pros: Hands On, Used My Knowledge And Skills, Autonomously Driven Yet Social Environment, Socially Rewarding
Cons: Suboptimal Wage
I was a Lecturer for a second course in Calculus taught from 8:45-10:00 am.

My responsibilities included relating my knowledge of the subject to my students in a way understandable at their level, making sure to get their feedback and adapt my examples to suit them, strengthening their week-points in the material.

Afterwards I would have office hours, wherein I would address the individual needs and questions of each student attending. I always encourage attending these as it is the perfect haven for the more timid students to seek out help, which would be frightened to do so in-front of their peers.

The hardest part of my job was to ensure that every single one of my students understood the material to the best of their abilities. I achieved this as best I could by always listening to their feedback, providing extra unpaid office hours and addressing their concerns via email correspondences.

This then lead into the easiest and most rewarding part of my job, which was seeing their success upon the hard work on both our parts at the end of the semester.

Throughout this entire process I learnt that impeccable time management, keen communications skills and autonomy were crucial in being able to successfully manage 80 students, without each of these I could not have achieved in them the results I was wanted, which was their success.

Also, it was very pleasant to worked individually on my section yet to be part of a group of five professors and lecturers who worked together as a team to optimize our teaching plans and strategies.

Energetic and there were a lot to learn
Teacher Assistance (Former Employee), MontrealMay 5, 2015
Here is what I have to do :

•Teaching the AutoCAD and help students how to become familiar with modular concepts.

•Prepare lesson materials, presentation slides, exhibits, equipment, and demonstrations.

•Prepare material to aide students with their assignment.

My supervisor was not only a manager but also a perfect leader and my coworkers were the best in team work and sharing the information.They were really supportive.I learned how to work in group and how to deal with different people.
The hardest part was during exam period,that you have to lead the students and don't let them down,but when you saw how hardworking they are and how they improve that was the real joy.

Nice Place
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Montréal, QCDecember 9, 2014
The place is nice with multicultural diversity. The work load is good and the environment is very productive. however, you have to be self driven. The work is English but you will need French for your everyday work outside Concordia. The shuttle bus between the two campuses makes the transportation easy, quick and affordable.

Research Assistant (Former Employee), Montréal, QCOctober 1, 2014
I worked on developing new techniques in order to improve Modelchecking techniques. Modelchecking techniques is one of the most important techniques that are used to verify hardware systems designs.
the most enjoyable part is doing research and trying to solve problems. also working with great people and learn from them.
the hardest part is to work under pressure.

I learn new information about verification and testing of hardware system designs (formal and informal techniques)
