Small Group Tutor Position

What is a Small Group Tutor?

Small Group Tutoring is a small peer based interactive group where students sign up online to attend weekly sessions for the whole quarter. As a tutor, you will facilitate group learning sessions for your students. Tutoring sessions are meant to be collaborative, interactive, and shy away from the traditional lecture model. Small Group Tutors do not attend lecture, instead they preapre for one hour a week on their own. Students who attend tutoring should generally come with topics or questions to discuss in tutoring sessions. 

Applicants who can support both upper and lower-division courses or multiple courses across multiple disciplines will have hiring preference.
