“I couldn’t help but notice that you have a good attitude and you would make an excellent tutor…” is what my teacher started to say.
This is the teacher who wrongly accused me of cheating the first time I took this class and as a result, I lost the tutoring job I had at the Moraine Valley IMS Lab.
It’s actually pretty good that I am retaking this class – starting fresh.
She told me that she would be happy to recommend me back to my previous employer, because she was looking for tutors again. I commented that my schedule is pretty tight, so I wouldn’t be able to do it at this time. But I’m considering it. The pay was too low and the hours too short. Luckily the hours were negotiable. I can only hope that Jane was not looking for someone with set hours and an open availability.
The only time I really have left open is time I have reserved for myself. For instance, I have Tuesday and Thursday nights off. This is in case I find that I have the money to get back into TaeKwonDo. Those nights are when I would take my classes. Let me think about this logically for a moment. My normal schedule for the week is as following:
Monday – I have school all day. There’s no way.
Tuesday – I work usually until 3, but I told them my availablity was until 4. If I worked in the lab before Taekwondo, I’d be able to tell McD’s no later than 3, and go straight to school to work from maybe 4 until 7 at the latest. Would those hours even be worth it?
Wednesday – School again. This time only until 5:45. I would be able to work in the lab until close. That wouldn’t be problem.
Thursday – Work until 3 again. Then the possible 4-7 that I wouldn’t really like because it requires a lot of going straight from one place to another without stop.
Friday – Another perfect solution. I work until 3 and then I’m free.
Saturday and Sunday – Also days that I work until 3 but I’m not sure if I’d even be needed at the lab on those days. And Saturday is church at 6 so really Sunday would be the only time I would have open on the weekend and I don’t know if the lab is even open on those days.
So I’m not entirely sure if this could be done. I mean with time left open for TKD as well. If I took that out, I could work no problem. But I refuse to do that. I guess I could just talk to my teacher again. Told her I reconsidered it but I wouldn’t really be available for the optimal amount of time. I guess that doesn’t matter a whole lot. It’d be less time they’d have to pay me for. I don’t know. I’ll have to take this into consideration a little bit more. I would like to have another job to get some more money in – especially while they’ll be cutting hours at McD’s.
