Why do you work at EUC?

Working in a company became rather routine and boring. I much prefer teaching and working with people. When I saw the position of Tutor at Life Sciences department at EUC, I was immediately excited to apply! I like to work at EUC because it is more fun to work with people than with chemicals, mostly because chemicals can not smile. I like to see the smiling and happy faces of our students, talk to them, tutor them and learn from them. Additionally, I like the family environment which abounds at EUC, the beautiful campus, and the cappuccino's in our cafeteria.
