Teaching assistants / tutors / interns typically are graduate students enrolled at Saint James or other
institution of higher education, serving under temporary contracts. North American graduate TA
positions provide funding for postgraduate research - although the main purpose is to provide
teaching support - and it often serves as a first career step for aspiring academics.[3] TA
responsibilities vary greatly and may include: tutoring; holding office hours; invigilating tests or exams;
and assisting a professor with a large lecture class by teaching students in recitation, laboratory, or
discussion sessions. Professors may also use their teaching assistants to help teach discussions
during regular class. This gives the graduate student opportunity to use their teaching skills, as many
are in pursuit of teaching careers
