Provided support, encouragement, and information to students in their department who are just beginning the graduate program. Stayed in touch with your new student group by periodically sending follow up message through text message platform. Refered students to different academic resources in campus for specific issue.
love the atmosphere..great management...students are wide -ranging in abilities, which is really fun to teach. I have been there for about 5 years, and the classes are always different..
Easy job, laid back bosses. It's a no-brainer to apply there you're paid 15$ an hour for very little work. The only downside is that you'll only be working about 2 hours a week.
excellent pay, non-demanding job

I was born in China and grew up speaking Chinese. Therefore, Chinese is my mother tongue. The February 2016 would be a great step in my life; I received a job offer as a Mandarin tutor from the Languages & Cultures department at Vanier College. Now, I tutored already Mandarin three semesters and taught four different people. This experience permitted me to examine Mandarin from a different perspective; that of a non-Chinese trying to learn this unique language. I discovered that Mandarin is a very hard language, but nevertheless original and fun. The different nationalities and personalities of my tuttees permitted me to compare mandarin with other languages and to approach Chinese cultures from different angles. In conclusion, being a Mandarin tutor would help me greatly to become a good pedagogue.
A great job with routine activities including speaking one on one with tutees and going over essay rules, English grammar, speaking skills, etc.
It's a non-profit volunteer work that I did. I was not paid for helping around. I simply make sure that the people with "down" syndrome do their daily tasks according to expectations. Everyone is nice and friendly, I always go there with a smile on my face, for they are happy to see me as much as I am happy to see them. I volunteered with other students there, all for free. I learned to be more visual, for I need to make sure that they do their work properly. I need to be patient because it is not always easy to come to an understanding with people with "down" syndrome, it also happens that you have to ask them to repeat themselves multiple times what they have previously said.
Very flexible time.
I was a phone representative for the student helpline during registration periods. Every day would start at 8:30am and would entail answering the phone all day answering questions that students would have about registration and helping them learn the Cegep system. Absolutely loved this job, and the people I worked with.
