    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Urbana, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Brief interview. Was asked about my experience in teaching; why I like to teach and all that jazz. I went in with almost no experience in teaching. I had made some YouTube videos in Physics and Math earlier but tutoring is a completely new thing for me. You don't need much experience. Just make sure you have an interest in teaching and you shall do the interview well. Also, grades do matter - get a good grade.
