What’s it like to be an….ELS Instructor/Academic Counselor?
What does a normal day look like? Is it consistent throughout the year? If youíve had this position for a while, how have things changed?
Iíve only been in this job for two months Ė and Iím loving it! I teach an English class that is specifically designed for international students so we talk about American academic culture, culture shock, and how to juxtapose home cultures with school cultures. This class meets three times a week for one hour. The rest of my time is spent meeting with students who are on academic probation, advising my English students, and designing my next lesson. Each day is different. This job is only a Ĺ time job, but I spend most of my day at work creating and developing ideas.
