Reporting to the Assistant Director of Tutoring and Workshops, the Tutoring Program Manager is responsible for all programmatic and administrative facets of the Tutoring Program in The Learning Center, which is Arts, Sciences and Engineering's course-specific peer education platform. The Tutoring Program Manager designs, delivers, and evaluates programming to serve the academic needs of the AS&E undergraduate population. Responsible for all tutoring communications and logistical operations, this position connects undergraduate tutees to appropriate services, trains, and supervises undergraduate and graduate tutors, and maintains strong partnerships with faculty and staff.
TLC Tutors take the one-credit, semester-long seminar CASC 312: Supportive Practices in Peer Education, and can subsequently offer individual and small group tutoring in appropriate subjects through the College Tutoring Program housed in the Genesee Hall Tutoring Zone.
There is no strict GPA requirement to apply; however, preference will be given to applicants who performed well in the courses that they propose to tutor in. We particularly encourage students who have struggled academically but ultimately succeeded in their coursework to apply.
Applicants must be available during the semester for which they are hired to participate in the CASC 312 seminar on Fridays at either:
- 10:25 to 11:15 a.m.
- 2 to 2:50 p.m.
Any scheduling changes that prohibit prospective tutors from attending the CASC 312 seminar will result in any offer of employment being rescinded.
All applicants should also demonstrate passion for the subject matter and want to help others both to learn the subject well and become better learners.
Please visit the Become a Tutor page for more information and instructions for applying.
If you have any questions, please email CETL tutoring at email@example.com with any questions.
