Me: Sorry, I don’t have any space in the teaching team this semester. Would you be interested in this other unit?
Tutor: Sorry, I’ll be in South Korea on exchange this semester. Maybe next year when I’m back?
My undergrad tutors are all such bloody high flyers. In addition to the above, one’s beating PhD students in student competitions and presenting their work internationally, one’s doing research at Cambridge, and the other’s researching ways to stop quantum computers stealing all our secrets and money.
I’ve just taken a new one on this semester and I’m terrified of finding out what she’s capable of.
