Is being a DLC Tutor for me?
As a DLC tutor you will need to be able to ring your students every week (negotiated between yourself and the students) apart from holidays. You need to mark work accurately within the two week turn around period. You will also need to able to write academic references.
You need to enjoy helping students meet their goals, go the extra mile and love seeing students blossom and grow.
You will be the sort of person who keeps up with what is going on in the sector and be able to give good and valid advice on your student's goals. You also need to want to be part of a team and yet autonomous so that if you do not know something you will ask, or even drop in for a cup of tea.
What you do not need to do is write all your own materials and assessments. These are all provided for you, but if you think that you can improve things please let us know as we are always willing to make things better.
