The typical day of work will be going to class staying with students and have peer assisted study session after class. When I am working alone, it is the time I rewrite my notes, read through textbooks and find what the key concepts is to help students study better.
The most valuable thing I have learned is to effectively communicate. To use this in my work, it becomes to offer help in different way to help student improve. For example, to observe students. Some receive knowledge better in practicing by themselves, but some only get things clear when they have seen a model problem solved step by step. To find students of different group is really a way to help me learn effectively communicate.
Every one of my co-workers has something that I could learn from. They all smart and hardworking. For example, one of my co-worker is really good at words. He made math class, which is supposed to be boring, interesting.
The hardest part of the job is the aim of the job, that to help students with their math. Students are not good at math for a reason. It really upsets me when students did not have improvement. Also, it really make me happy when students do well improve a lot , after my help. And this makes the most enjoyable part of job. Math is what I am good at, and what could be better than that using what you are good at to help people who are not good at it yet.
