PLUS Academic Tutor

April 2021 • Cheney, WA

What I liked

I enjoy my employers and how pleasant and helpful they are towards me. I also love the flexibility of the PLUS Academic Tutor position where I was able to block out time that I wasn't available during class times. I enjoy how flexible this job is towards schedule changes every quarter which I have never been able to find in any other jobs that I have had in the past. I enjoy meeting with students and assist them achieve their academic goals for success in their classes.

What I wish was different

Although this job is featured as a 15 hr/wk job the hours vary a lot depending on the amount of assignments as well as appointments you have with students. You will not be guaranteed 15 hours a week every week. Sometimes students have to cancel a meeting, or don't show up and you're unable to work for that hour.

Advice

If you love the intellectual environment I'd highly recommend applying to this job. Be cautious if you're very dependent on a steady 15 hours a week for work. If you find yourself not in this position this is the perfect job for you.
