The Academic Tutoring department is looking to bring on additional finance and economics tutors who will work one-on-one and with groups to help students navigate the challenges of their assigned courses and content material.
On top of face-to-face appointments, tutors may be assigned to the online tutoring lab or in other labs across campus. Tutors are also expected to contribute to certain Academic Tutoring initiatives like conducting class visits, creating and updating handouts, designing workshops, and contributing to Studypalooza at the end of the semester.
Academic Tutoring embraces the power of students helping students and supports all individuals—regardless of identity, culture, point of view, or background—as they navigate the challenges associated with their educational goals. With a focus on gateway major courses, certified peer tutors work alongside each student to foster serious academic exploration and inspire lifelong learning.
