Knowledge for, in and of Practice

Tuan Vu who is currently a third-year student at Skidmore College in the USA, has set his mind on exploring different aspects of the global economy. Tuan also has an interest in the Japanese culture, which inspires him to learn not only about the economic aspects of the land of rising sun but also its language.

During office hours, Tuan assists the professor who teaches Japanese classes with preparing assignments, grading and providing feedback for students. Besides his official duties, Tuan is tutoring part-time Economic and Math sections for first-year students at the College centres. Since both of these positions are highly academic-related, Tuan is required to understand all the materials thoroughly while growing his knowledge constantly in case of any queries from the students. When tutoring someone, it is not just showing up and getting a series of tasks done, but it’s rather making a difference in a student’s life. This is why Tuan has extra reasons and motivation to be learned and studious. Both being a teaching assistant and tutoring take a lot of patience, attention and professionalism. These will be fantastic qualifications that are avidly searched for in the workforce in his future.
