Please share with members of your organization.
Successful undergraduates are now being recruited by the Academic Assistance Center to teach in the University Experience program during the 2015 fall semester. Peer instructors are needed to teach recitations for EDCEP 111 University Experience and lead study groups in social science or science courses. Peer instructors are also needed to lead study groups in Intermediate and College Algebra. These positions require a minimum time commitment of 10 hours per week for a total salary of $1200 for the fall 2015 semester. Selected applicants will be required to attend training sessions during the final 7 weeks of the spring 2015 semester and during the week before classes begin in August. In addition to the $1200 stipend, peer instructors will be paid for training at the rate of $7.25 per hour, contingent upon completing the training program and accepting a peer instructor assignment.
Successful applicants should have proven success in related course work with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. They should be good student role models, have the ability to relate to a diverse group of people, be committed to the concept of academic success for all students, and have an interest in teaching others how to learn. Preference will be given to students at the sophomore level and above.
The peer instructor positions will be explained in detail and application materials will be distributed at information meetings that will take place in mid-February. Deadline to sign up for an information meeting is February 12. To sign up, please contact Dr. Judith Lynch, Director, Academic Assistance Center, firstname.lastname@example.org.
