Postsecondary teachers have more flexibility over the format of their instructional methods than their K-12 counterparts. They also have greater control over their schedules, with many postsecondary instructors teaching part time, as well as full time. They have fewer classroom management and procedural responsibilities than grade-school teachers but are expected to devote significant time to preparing lectures and instructions for assignments, in addition to evaluating and providing individual guidance to students when necessary.

I am currently a junior at LSUS majoring in Cellular and Molecular Biology. I became interested in tutoring last year, while attending Supplemental Instruction sessions. I was very intrigued with the processes that the tutors used, and I wanted to help others the way they helped me, so I became a tutor in the spring of 2018. In my short time at the SSC, I have found that tutoring not only helps the tutees but also the tutor, as it continuously refreshes the mind with previously learned concepts. Tutoring has helped me get closer to obtaining my dreams of attending medical school, and for that, I am grateful.

During this harsh economic time, searching for jobs can be a very stressful experience. While companies and corporations are laying off a massive amount of individuals and smaller companies are struggling to keep their existing employees, job opportunities have declined massively to the point where people often have no other choice but to stay at home. So, this brings forth the dreaded question, what kind of options do I have during this tough time?
