"My duties include office hours where students who just finished lab come to complete their lab reports and ask questions. I take my tutoring/mentoring job very seriously. Because there is a new lab every week, I attend the lab lecture that students attend, read through the lab, finish the pre-lab, lab report and additional exercises ahead of time, check the answers, and go to weekly mentor meetings to discuss potential questions students may have.
