Additionally, evidence of capability for independent learning of either new programming languages or modules is desirable.
Knowledge. Solid understanding of Python, and/or Machine Learning with R.
Additional skills. Include, the ability to present information to groups verbally, and to guiding students through new concepts; excellent communication, consultative and interpersonal skills – for example, the role requires the tutor to help students with coding problems as they run into them, and to deal calmly with concerns and problems raised by students. Additionally, the tutor is expected to maintain a relaxed teaching atmosphere in which students are made to feel welcome and valued.
