Pros: assisting students in learning.
Cons: limited office hours during the week.
A typical day at work would depend on the day of the week. A typical week would consist of reading the weekly reading, attending the lecture, and hosting office hours or schedule office hours for students who could not make it to regular hours.
I was able to improve my confidence in a slightly independent position. Despite the fact that the lecturing Professor was the person in charge, I was still responsible for assisting students in class and during laboratory sessions. Therefore, I learned to be more confident in my abilities to assist others and even confirm my own confidence on the material covered in the course.
