Hiring Summer 2017:
The Dodie Anderson Academic Enrichment Center is currently hiring academic tutors/mentors for Summer 2017. The Academic Tutor/Mentor program offers support to student-athletes as they learn to function effectively in the college environment. We are currently looking to hire tutors and mentors that are available all times throughout the day, 8am-5:30pm; At minimum, we are asking applicants to be available at least 3 days per week, at a consistent time each day for the summer sessions due to the accelerated pace of courses.
The primary responsibility of a mentor is to provide one-on-one guidance on study and organizational skills, time management, and goal setting. We are currently looking to hire mentors that have a bachelor’s degree and/or are currently enrolled in the graduate program.
The primary responsibility of a tutor is to understand and clearly communicate course content and study skills to the tutees. One-on-one and group tutoring is available in a broad array of courses. The Tutor Program provides subject-specific assistance to student-athletes as a supplement to the classroom learning experience. These are typically undergraduate students at the sophomore level or higher, however, we also hire graduate students that are interested in subject tutoring rather than mentoring.
A flyer and application have been attached to this email. Mentor applications should be sent to Amanda Davalos firstname.lastname@example.org and tutor applications sent to Niesha Love email@example.com.

Hope you are enjoying a restful and happy holiday break. Looking forward to meeting and working with you all. This site is where you will access all materials for my course, so please bookmark this page.
Before our first meeting, please purchase our textbook, available in our bookstores and online: Kelly Gallagher's Teaching Adolescent Writers. Additional course readings, available in PDFs and links on the Course Schedule, will also be required, thus you might want to reserve printing money or plan on bringing a laptop or tablet with you to class. You'll also need to pick up a new 70p. spiral notebook (you'll need it by the second week of classes at the latest).
See you all on our first day, Tuesday January 10th!
