It was enjoyable because I loved teaching accounting, its my passion, however challenging because I had to help many students and also keep up with my own work.

I would attend my supervisors classes to get a brief overview of what he does in class, set up a time and date for the next tutoring session if any additional sessions are required by the students.

The academic space I was placed in, was an an opportunity for me to retain the knowledge in Accounting of Financial Accounting 1. Hence, I was student tutor in Financial Accounting 1. The environment of the accounting sphere helped me to tackle questions that I had not experience in my first year. The students who attended the tutoring sessions were from different groups and different lectures. I had the opportunity experience how different students think about the same question, because the sessions were interactive, it was fun.
Pros
Learning
Cons
Time

It was fine, we received tutoring training and started tutoring. They deducted 60% of the salary to pay fees. A typical day would be a tutoring class or consultation with one student

I had flexible working hours, made it easy to attend my classes and finish my assignment. i learned how to manage my time effectively. most students i assisted have different racial backgrounds so it was interesting to learn from others. the hardest part of my job is when my classes clashed with my own timetable, students are demanding and expect you to assist them with everything, but i enjoyed the experience, i was able to stand in front of people and speak which helped in my confidence.
Pros
earn pocket money
Cons
flexible hours of work

If I ever had to re-do my studies, I would choose CPUT over and over again.

The institution allows you to work and study at the same time which assists you in paying your debt as a student.


Working in a multi-cultured environment made this experience priceless.
Pros
Environment is fun
Cons
Payment not always on time as a student tutor

I was forced to be affirmative on daily basis, because my mentor was pushing me to learn as much as I could. I've learned how to work with a team and meeting deadlines, punctuality and respecting the work I did. I was not allowed to stay behind to finish my work as they didn't allow me to work overtime even if I was expecting to get paid. Enjoyable time of the job was to analyze samples, troubleshooting and mostly achieving the required recoveries and grades.
Pros
Given opportunity to learn how to troubleshoot
Cons
Being limited to work specific hours

The experience as tutor and at the same time student was wonderful. It made me understand the definition of what it mean to work under pressure but as always every single good experience also have bad ones, and for this specific case i would say that there wasn't enough respects from the institution towards students,lack of payments.

I assist students who are struggling academically and socially in their first year at university. I am there as their support structure so that should they feel that they are in a bit of a scuffle with their studies, they should know that there is a person who is there to help them to get through it all. Each of my colleagues and I have been assigned students that we have to focus on, however they are not as actively involved with their students as I am with mine and their students feel neglected. I, therefore end up assisting the other students as well. The ability to pass down the little knowledge i have to the younger students is what makes me enjoy my job.
Pros
Sharing of ideas
Cons
Very little time.
