The Learning Center’s Peer Tutoring program supports students in more than 150 undergraduate courses through drop-in and appointment-based peer tutoring. Tutors enroll in EDUC 387-Peer Tutoring, in which they learn about effective tutoring and learning strategies.

The dates for this position are August 10, 2020-May 4, 2021, including a mandatory training week before the Fall semester begins.
Applicants should have experience teaching, the ability to learn quickly and work independently, and strong organization and communication skills. A background in education is a plus, but graduate students from all backgrounds are welcome to apply. Selection will occur through a formal application and interview process.
Applications are due March 8.
The Peer Tutoring Teaching Assistant will receive the university standard teaching assistant stipend ($7,850/semester) with eligibility for health insurance for the academic year.
