Job Openings

Tutors - (Currently Closed to Applicants)

The Fall 2020 Tutoring hiring process is complete and the position is currently closed to new applicants. Hiring for the Spring 2021 semester will begin in November 2020.  Please check back then for the link to the application.

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 Fall 2020 semester to participate in the CASC 312 seminar. 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that prohibit prospective Tutors from attending the CASC 312 seminar will result in any offer of employment being rescinded.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.

If you have any questions, please email CETL Tutoring at tutoring@rochester.edu with any questions.


Study Zone Leader - (Currently Closed to Applicants)

The Fall 2020 Study Zone leader hiring process is complete and the position is currently closed to new applicants. Please look for open positions in future semesters. Positions are generally posted in late March for fall-semester hiring and late October for spring-semester hiring.

The Study Zone is a low-distraction quiet study space within the CETL suite in Dewey Hall. Study Zone leaders (SZLs) provide support to every student using the space in the form of goal-setting before and debriefing after each study session. Please note that any future job offers will be contingent on a new SZLs' availability to enroll in a 1-credit training course for the position.

For more information about the program's purpose and practicalities, please visit the Study Zone page. Please email Kyle Trenshaw with any questions.


Study Group Leader - (Currently Closed to Applicants)

Please note that to serve as a SGL, you must have already completed either CAS 312 (CETL Tutor) or CAS 352 (PLTL Workshop leader) by the time of hire.
