    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Centennial College (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Thorough, panel-led and has a mix of teaching demo as well as overall interview discussing background, experience and qualifications. The interview process started with a 10min teaching demo where i was asked to present a subject as if i was presenting it to students in the classroom (brief sent 2 weeks earlier to prepare). The most important aspect of a teaching demo, is to demonstrate (1) knowledge of subject matter and (2) presenting the material in an engaging manner, again as if presenting to students and not a professional audience. After the demo, we had a 5min Q&A about the demo and we then moved to a 40min interview.

    Colleges in ontario are part of a union and hence the ability to negotiate is very very limited as there is a collective agreement in place.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Centennial College (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Met with a panel of potential supervisors and answered questions regarding how to tutor different kinds of students as well as personality and previous experiences. It's best when you have previous teaching experience as it gives you a better understanding of how to respond to the needs of students. The interview was interesting to me and the staff were very friendly but its difficulty depends on whether you understand teaching.

    • Imagine a student comes up to you after having not done any of their course assignments or attended any lectures. How will you go about tutoring that student?   Answer Question
