Working as a student
Being a Chemistry tutor and practical demonstrator has taught me discipline and confidence. We were required to assist students in understanding concepts taught and being safe in laboratory environments.
We had to be ready to clearly explain concepts and be punctual when working.

This experience was really convenient. since

Fun workplace
As a student assistant, it allowed me to interact with students from various backgrounds, and different economic conditions, ways of communicating. I also got exposure to academic exposure from a lecture and a student perspective. The difficult part was drawing the line between being emphatic towards a student who is late for the exam and being strict with the rules.

Challenging, fun work experience
- Busy facilitating sessions on a typical workday
- Learned and developed managerial skills from running practical sessions on my own

- The challenging part of the job is concurrently running practicals single-handedly

- The latter is stressful but enjoyable when everything goes well
