Mentor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 20 May 2017

Move in Assistant (Volunteering) (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 17 May 2017
I was helping first year students moving to new dormitory,which make me very happy. I am enjoy helping other people solving problems, this job gives me this chance,even though without salary. The challenge for me is that I can not lift too heavy packages, which may reduce the efficiency of moving in. However, the first year students always help me when I lift heavy packages, which lets me feel that it is worth to do this job. From this job, I experienced the process of teamwook and I think it is very importment to cooperate with other people. After finishing the moving, we have a party with the new students and they are very appreciated for the moving volunteers. I am also apprecaited them that give me the chance to helping other people and enjoy the life in my university deeply.

Fun workplace where you get to interact with younger students.
Teacher's Assistant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 19 February 2017
my typical day starts at a particular day depending on the schedule where i have to book a room for discussion groups and run the discussion groups. I have to help students answer questions and quiz them whenever a quiz is provided from the professor.
What i've learned: Time management, The thought process behind Marking papers, use of Microsoft office to document grades and comments is very useful.
The hardest part of the job is marking papers, as it's time consuming and one must be unbiased when marking the papers and must remember to treat all the students the same in terms of deducting marks.
The most enjoyable part of the job is helping the students understand the course content and running the discussion group.
