Tutoring is a great way to get involved, help other students and reinforce important material.
Our tutors must have a B+ or higher in courses that they tutor, as well as a minimum 3.0 GPA. Additionally, two recommendations from faculty members must be completed and returned. Each tutor is required to attend tutor training at the beginning of each term.
Openings are listed in Handshake and the T3 campus e-mail publication when there is a need for a specific subject.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. If a need arises, qualified applicants will be invited in for an interview. Make sure to identify the courses that you would be interested in tutoring. After completing the application (Word) , please send it via e-mail to achieve AT_TOWSON or drop it off at the Academic Achievement Center.
Should you be contacted for an interview, you will be asked to answer a series of questions. Tutors being interviewed for science, music or computer science will need to bring a completed checklist from the coordinator.
Two letters of recommendation from faculty in the course areas that you will be tutoring will be required. The recommendation forms to provide to faculty will be provided to the students as part of the interview process.
The New Student Employee Orientation will be available to you through Blackboard once you are hired. You will be added to the orientation module allowing you access to a detailed PowerPoint and follow up assessment. You will need to achieve an 80% or higher for it to be considered complete.
