Job Openings

Study Zone Leader
Open to applicants 

During the Spring 2018 semester, we are piloting a new form of study support for a small group of students in the College. We want this program to be successful, so we hope you might be interested in being one of our first Study Zone leaders! Please follow the instructions on the application and if you have any questions, email CETL.


Study Skills Consultant
Graduate Students ONLY 
(Currently Closed to Applicants)

CETL is in search of a reliable and knowledgeable graduate student who can assist UR students with study skills, time management, organization, and other academic-related concerns. As an employee of CETL, Study Skills Consultants hold weekly office hours where they meet individually with students. Additionally, they are asked to present a variety of workshops related to study skills for the campus community. Study Skills Counselors also generally serve as instructors in the ECO summer program (Early Connections Opportunity) and teach a section or possibly two of MOI (Methods of Inquiry, a one credit study skills course that runs during the academic year).


Study Group Leaders
(Currently Closed to Applicants)

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 both to learn the subject well and become better learners.

For more information about the program's purpose and practicalities, see the study group page. Study groups are scheduled to fit the leaders' timetables. Contact Robin Frye with any questions.


Tutors
Open for Applicants interested in Spring 2018 

Individual and small group tutoring is available for a range of subjects through the College Tutoring Program in CETL.
All new tutors will be required to enroll in a one credit tutor training course.  To complete this course, tutor trainees will attend six face-to-face training sessions and complete six online modules through Blackboard.  A link for how to apply to this position will be made active on the CETL tutor webpage when the application period has opened.  
The pay rate is $10/hour for undergraduate tutors and $14/hour for graduate student tutors.
Please visit the tutoring webpage to find out more information.

For the greatest opportunities, apply early in the course registration period. Interviews generally take place before the examination period, and openings for the following semester tend to be filled by the end of exams. All openings are generally filled before the add/drop deadline.
