Each semester the Learning Center hires tutors to work with students at USF and in the city of San Francisco.
On-Campus Peer Tutors
All peer tutors are full-time USF students who have completed at least a
semester of study at USF. Tutors are those students who show dedication to
their academics and maintain a Cumulative and Semester GPA of 3.0 or
higher. To tutor for a specific course the applicant should have taken
the course at USF, received an A- or above, and can produce a USF
faculty letter of recommendation. All tutors are required to
participate in ongoing tutor training during their time as an LWC peer
tutor. To apply, fill out an application online. Students interested in tutoring in the languages should complete an application with the Department of Modern and Classical Languages.
We are still recruiting for Fall 2013! All interested students should submit an application online and we will get back to you! For questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-422-6713.
Off-Campus Community Tutors
Students interested in tutoring youth in the San Francisco public schools and after-school programs should apply for the America Reads program or the FYIT (Families & Youth in Transition) program.
The Learning & Writing Center is currently hiring graduate students for its Project Success program. The Projects Success program is in need of several Graduate Academic Coaches. The Graduate Coach works closely with undergraduates who are in want of additional and continued academic support during the academic year. Coaches work specifically with students on goal setting and attainment, and the improvement of academic skills. Applicants must be current, full-time USF graduate students who are organized, possess a working knowledge of Student Development Theory and Adult Learning Theory, and have experience working with students at the college level. To apply please submit a resume, letter of interest, and references to Kimberly Harris at email@example.com.
