Math Tutoring Lab Tutors (Job #141)

Tutors in the Math Tutoring Lab help college students develop math skills in algebra, pre-calculus and calculus in a drop-in setting. Tutors may also tutor statistics and/or other math classes if able. Duties include greeting students, describing the services of the lab, and approaching students to find out how to help them are essential part of the position. Tutors are required to ask questions and guide students to solve problems rather than solving problems for tutees. Applicants must be registered for or have completed Math 481, Workshop in Tutoring Mathematics, or equivalent prior to being hired.

Hiring for the Math Tutoring Lab typically takes place at the beginning of the academic year, however job openings do open midyear on occasion. For further information, contact Su Karl, Learning Center Director, (707) 826-5217 or su@humboldt.edu.

Writing Studio Consultants (Job #145)

Writing Studio consultants help other students organize and revise their writing assignments for courses in any subject area. Consultants typically meet with individual students in 30- or 50- minute blocks of time, either by appointment, on a drop-in basis, or online. Consultants work with students to identify areas of a piece of writing that would benefit from revision, and assist the student's efforts to strengthen the overall paper, rather than proof-reading or making changes for the student. Regular paid meetings are mandatory. Applicants must have completed or be in the process of completing English 450 or equivalent prior to being hired. English 450 is currently offered in spring. Positions typically open before the start of each semester. For further questions, please contact Jessica Citti, 707-826-5188 or jessica.citti@humboldt.edu.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leaders (Job #156)

SI Leaders lead peer-facilitated sessions each week for targeted science classes designed to reinforce content and learn optimal study skills for the discipline. Responsibilities include planning for and using active learning and teaching strategies, meeting with the designated faculty and SI coordinator. SI leaders must attend paid training before the semester begins and ongoing trainings throughout the semester. In addition, SI leaders are observed and given feedback.

There are often more openings fall semester, but occasionally openings occur in spring. Preference is given to applicants with tutoring or teaching experience. Students underrepresented in STEM majors as well as work-study eligible students are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be in good standing and have earned a B or higher in the targeted class. For further information contact Arianna Thobaben, 707-826-5226
