Business Administration/Industrial Engineering – Mechanical Engineering
The work as a tutor offers a lot of advantages. First of all, there are the obvious reasons that you earn money, work something meaningful and of course improve your own CV. But there are also advantages that I was not aware of when I started working as a tutor: Working as a mathematics tutor is a lot of fun, you learn a lot more in mathematics and you can use that in your own studies!
Since mathematics exercises in engineering and humanities differ in some parts from “pure” mathematics exercises, we are looking for committed students from the corresponding departments for the service events. The minimum requirement is that you have passed the course you wish to support. The tutor job can be started in the third semester at the earliest.
Before starting the job for the first time, you will take part in the department's two-day tutor training course. In addition, you will be supported by our qualified team during the entire first semester.
Under certain circumstances, courses already attended, e.g. in computer science or physics, can be recognized. In this case, please contact the coordinator of the Mathematics Tutor Training.
During the first semester of your employment you will receive an hourly wage of 10 €. From the second semester onwards, we pay 11.75 €.
You can find detailed information on the pages of the tutorial teaching and on the main pages of the department.
And now a few words from Julia.
She is studying Business Informatics and has been a tutor since SoSe 2018:
It is above all important to want to teach something with pleasure. You don't have to be perfect at everything. I always have the feeling that I can best convey to the students topics that I myself have had to nibble on a bit longer, because I know what you might not understand about them.
