I'm currently an essay-writing tutor (and a full-time Secondary Education/English major). I mostly like tutoring. I like fiction writing more, but I was kind of fascinated by all the nuances of essay-writing growing up and pondered it a whole lot, so it's nice to have a place where they pay me to do it, lol. And it's taught me way more about teaching than I've ever learned in education classes. I'm also considering staying with one-on-one tutoring after graduation but just getting a better-paying position. It kinda sounds better than dealing with things like the behavior problems of 25 kids at once, pressure to teach to standardized tests, and dealing with rigid, micromanaging bureacracies in addition to actually doing the act of teaching.
The other problem, though, is that I don't actually believe that the traditional essay that's normally taught in schools (especially the "five-paragraph" variety) is conducive to helping the majority of kids accomplish the purpose of writing in the first place.
I do want to have a position that ultimately deals with writing, since that's my main passion in life that I'm able to do, but I can't see myself teaching the traditional essay forever. I think my dream teaching job would be teaching creative writing. Maybe I could eventually do editing or actual writing or something like that.
