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:
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.
Good pay for the amount of hours you put in
Time consuming when taking classes as well
