The Rowan Writing Center is hiring graduate and undergraduate tutors.
Writing Center Tutors work with undergraduate and graduate students on writing assignments across the disciplines. This includes traditional essays, research papers, lab reports, slide shows & presentations, speeches, resumes, scholarship applications, personal statements, and creative writing projects. Part of doing this includes assisting students with navigating genres and developing critical reading and academic skills. Tutors work one on one and in small groups, individually and in teams. They tutor in the Writing Center and provide information sessions for classes and facilitate workshops in classrooms alongside instructors. This requires speaking in front of groups of up to 30 people. Paid training and ongoing professional development are provided. Opportunities for research and conference participation exist. The Rowan Writing Center encourages applicants from all academic disciplines.
Undergraduate candidates should have completed College Composition II or its transfer equivalent with a B and an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Undergraduate tutors are expected to make a minimum commitment of ten hours a week during Fall and Spring semesters (2-semester minimum commitment). All tutors must participate in two-day long training sessions in August and be available on Fridays from 2p-3p in both the Fall and Spring semesters.
Graduate applicants should have a GPA of 3.5 or higher. Graduate applicants with research, journal publication, teaching, tutoring, mentoring, learning consultant or teaching assistant experience strongly preferred.
