They work from Monday to Saturday (on a weekly basis, most of them--that of I know of). Still, with strong determination, they study during Sundays from 10 until 5.
They pay the tuition with their own money, the choose the subjects of their own willing, they spend extra time to study and read the books and other materials that the class requires them to. All in all, I see them as young generation with an indispensable attitude. They are the reasons why I finally decided to get involved in this tutoring world.
What do I get?
A lot, not in material gain, for sure. Coz it's none and that's not the main point.
The fact that I will meet them in a weekly basis and that I will become friends with them (which I do hope so) and that I will be able to talk, share ideas, exchange information about how we see things what's going on around us....are enough to make me say "YES" when there was an open recruitment for tutor at UT Korea.
That's how it went in the first place.
And...today, September 8, 2013 is the first day that I am going to 'be' in the UT Korea.
"Welcome aboard, Suray" I am telling myself--for the moment.^^
and what am I in charge of?
A subject called "Komunikasi Antarbudaya" (Cross-cultural Communication)...and this is the book that I have to use as the main textbook.
hmmm..how cool and interesting is that? *though I got to admit that it is a tediously written one--at least to my point of view. :-)--I find it challenging and fun to read. I have to, right? ^-^
