Paid Teaching/Tutoring Opportunity at the Learning Assistance Center (LAC)

From the LAC:
Are you interested in building your professional and academic skills while helping other SF State students?

The Learning Assistance Center (LAC) is currently hiring upper division and graduate students to tutor reading/writing/study skills and math/sciences/study skills for the Fall 2009 semester. Work-study and international students are welcome to apply.

At the LAC, you’ll get the opportunity to work with a diverse group of students in a great job environment with flexible hours and ongoing support from peers and experienced faculty coordinators.

Starting pay is $10.26 an hour. Tutors work at least 8 hours a week. In addition, new tutors also take AU 697: Tutoring Across Disciplines, a seminar that meets once a week for two hours and covers the theory and practice of tutoring.

For information about positions, the application process, or AU 697, please visit the LAC web site:

To be considered for an interview before the end of the semester, please submit a complete application as soon as possible. Applications submitted after May 20th will be considered for interviews over the Summer Break. Positions are limited, so submit your application for consideration as early as possible.

Applications can be dropped off on campus or sent by mail.

To teach or tutor, we must understand what students know, and build from there. The goal must be to understand basic principles. See "Teaching and Helping Students Think and Do Better" on amazon.

I worked at the LAC and would recommend it. It can really help you learn to diagnose writing issues better and faster. Also, you can run workshops and such, in all subject areas.
