I loved working with the professors from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Ottawa. It was an opportunity that both dependdd on my skills and knowledge while giving me ample opportunity to learn and it allowed for my own input and depended on my own initiative.

Teacher's Aide | Ottawa, ON | Dec. 4, 2019
Interactive and intuitive place to work with students
In general, teaching laboratories and homeworks students can get vary tedious, however there is no limitation to how creative you can be when instructing, which makes the work all the more fun! You collaborate a lot with other teaching assistants to understand the students minds, and you learn what course of actions are needed to be taken during special cases (like when correcting homework/midterms). Overrall this job doesn't not have downs, it's a very positive and open work with a lot of communication at hand!
