Tutor Students
Science Tutor, Advance Mathematics (Current Employee), Deer Park, TXMay 24, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: no breaks
A typical day is helping students non-stop with their academics, this thought me that patience and perseverance equals success.
I work with some of the smartest people in Houston so my co-workers are the greatest people in Houston.
The Hardest part of my job is switching from chemistry to physics and mathematics with a snap of a finger.Its not impossible, – more... its just one of the requirements with the job.
The best part about my job is when the students come back and tell you that they passed and understand thanks to you. – less

Quiet Day in the Lab
LAB ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Pasadena, TXMay 18, 2014
Pros: learning experience, relaxed environment
Cons: temporary job, part-time
After talking talking with my manager over which part of the lab should be cleaned up or organized I set to work on that goal. After completion there's usually lab equipment that needed fixing such a multi-meters with blown fuses and lab modules with damaged breadboards that need to be swapped out.

On certain days my manager would ask me to setup a – more... demo circuit for students to see or to confirm electrical values in the curriculum. With the exception a few days working with a fellow assistant to clean out the storage closet, I worked solo most of the time.

I enjoyed helping students solder and work on their projects, particularly if I could find them better tools for them to use. – less

Technical Assistant (Former Employee), Pasadena, TXMay 5, 2014
Pros: learning a trade just enough to be a safe citizen and getting my hands dirty.
Cons: hours were long once a week and not enough study breaks.
Test, organize, and set up tools and equipment for the Technical instructor could efficiently teach electrical students. Cleaned and assisted in restocking inventory. Customer service persona everyday to all the students attending to motivate retention. Able to send 1,000 pre- sorted standard letters to prospective students. Up graded the organization – more... of electronic and hard copy files for my Supervisor. Managed a couple of catered committee meetings. When at loss of direction my co-worker was able to assist me with a positive attitude. Memorizing the electrical trade to short-cut degree to be knowledgeable of class labs and keeping in mind not to feel over-whelmed with additional information. The most enjoyable part of my day was to see my supervisor know that each day I tried my hardest. – less

Great Place to Work
Tutor (Current Employee), Pearland, TXFebruary 10, 2014
This job is ideal for students who need a work study job. It is also good for a non-traditional student looking for more work. Due to the nature of the work, the job allows for a lot of study time which is no boubt well suited for a college student.

Wonderful educational experience
Adjunct Instructor (Online) (Current Employee), Houston, TXOctober 14, 2013
Pros: being able to conduct the classroom instruction as you see that it will benefit the students.
Cons: no guarantee that you will have a class at the end of the one you are instructing.
I have completely enjoyed my work at San Jac. The satisfaction that is received seeing the accomplishments of the students that have been a part of my classes have made it a dream job. Having the support of the management and administrative team in providing the needed equipment and materials for the different programs has just been wonderful. The hardest – more... times have been when a class for which I have prepared to instruct does not have enough students and has to be cancelled. Even in those times there is always the encouragement from the team that there will be another one soon. – less

I love this job but unfortunately with the issues in school fundings our hours will have to be cut.
Medical Radiography Clinical Instructor (Current Employee), Pasadena, TXJune 22, 2013
I manage and teach students in a clinical setting. I teach them how to apply positioning and proper radiation safety. They are responsible for knowing how to use the proper exposure techniques for lowest patient dose possible and also for the best positioning skills according to there text book "Merrills".
I have learned how to be an excellent tech – more... through my experience with the college. I can look at an image and know exactly how to make it the best quality diagnostically.
My co-workers all are so wonderful at what they do and I have a great relationship with all of them.
The hardest part of this job is dealing with students that are not in this field for the right reasons. I want them all to have that umph that it takes to be an excellent Rad Tech and sometimes they just have a negative attitude about it as if they don't want to be in clinic at all.
The one aspect of this job that I love is teaching the students what I have been taught over the years and seeing them use that knowledge in the clinical setting. I love making a positive influence in their lives and seeing them succeed upon completion of our Radiology program. – less

Educational Planner (Current Employee), Houston, TXMarch 18, 2013
Pros: mentoring program, doctoral research group, college day and transfer fair.

Served as person of contact on days when management is not available, athletic mentor – more... and adviser.

I a nice place to work because it allows us to pick our own schedule.
Lead Tutor (Current Employee), Houston, TXMarch 12, 2013
Pros: brakes
Cons: the pay rate is too low
Is a great place to work, I truly enjoy working with others. The best part of my job as a tutor is when a student leaves happy because we answer all his questions about his or her assignment. The hardest part about a tutor is when we a students come frustrated and want us to do their work. It is really hard to deal with those people because they tend – more... to get really mad. I have learned to communicate more effectively with others. – less
