Background / Possible Necessary Info:
- I'm currently studying computer science and about to go into 2nd year, this summer I have had a research internship with one of my tutors. To clarify he was a replacement tutor for someone who went on maternity leave but will be my tutor next year.
- The module he tutors is a software development project module so I will see him at most once a month during college and possibly during an elective module (I haven't decided if I want to take this module yet).
- The project module is worth half my credits for the year and grades are largely based on the opinions of the tutors.
He has mentioned multiple times the possibility of keeping me on for work during the semester but I am unsure of how to approach this topic with him.
Currently I am paid below minimum wage in my country (this is possible as it is given to me as a stipend/grant instead of hourly wage) and I don't know how I would be paid for part time. In order for me to live I need a job that pays at least minimum wage but don't know how to ask for this.
Is it a conflict of interest that he would be my tutor and my employer?
How do I approach the topic of part time employment during a college semester and how do I discretely/politely ask what I will be paid?
Note: I realise that this: I'm an intern going back to school and my boss has proposed that I work for him part-time. How do I go about negotiating here? could be a possible duplicate but the answers to that question does not suit my situation.
