Academic Tutors --
TIUA hires Willamette University students as peer academic tutors for American Studies Program (ASP) students in spring, summer and fall semesters. The peer tutors work closely with faculty members to provide a positive and supportive learning environment for students. The peer tutors meet regularly with students outside of class, often in a one-to-one tutoring situation, to help students understand class content and develop better academic English saltkills.
New tutors are generally recruited during spring semester.  At that time, there are information sessions held by current tutors, announcements on Job Cat, and tables in Goudy to announce the opportunities available.  Applications will be posted here when openings become available.
We are hiring tutors for our Summer Session and for Fall Semester 2018.
