Study group leaders take the credit-bearing seminar CAS 352 or 355 for study group leaders, and prepare, conduct and keep records for a weekly study group, typically in league with the course instructor. Study group leaders earn about $30 per weekly study group session. We are looking for people who excelled in the subjects that they would lead groups in, demonstrate passion for the subject, and want to help others to both learn the subject well and to become better learners. For more information about the Program's purpose and practicalities, see the study group web page. Study groups are scheduled to fit the leaders' timetables. Further questions can be directed to Robin Frye.

All openings are generally filled before the add/drop deadline.
