Tutor Manager

Description

ASC Graduate Fellow: Tutor Manager

 

The Academic Success Center’s Tutor Manager Graduate Fellow performs a number of essential functions. This Three Quarter Graduate Fellowship offers 18 credits of tuition remission and a stipend of $3,000 per academic year. In return, the fellow is responsible to work approximately 18-20 hours per week during the academic calendar.

 

Candidates for this position should be motivated, organized, and have some previous experience assisting others in personal development. In order to get to know and understand the student, the ideal Tutor Manager would be personable, have relationship building skills, and be able to use reflective language to let students know they have been heard. The Tutor Manager needs to have the analytical ability to determine some of the key stumbling blocks and concerns an individual is experiencing that is negatively affecting their academic progress.

 

This position holds a considerable level of responsibility and requires a high level of independent judgment, initiative, and discretion. The Tutor Manager makes frequent decisions regarding tasks, time, and data and is required to deal discreetly with confidential documents (disability documentation, student grades, social security numbers, etc). This position can be challenging with the high volume of communication needed to coordinate with dozens of tutors, follow up with student clients, and hosting multiple trainings each semester. A student in this position must be tactful and supportive as well as protective of student privacy.

  • Ideal candidates would have some longevity in this role and thus we are looking for students who will be available for multiple years.
  • This ASC fellow will work his/her hours on a set weekly schedule with their hours spread over multiple days per week at Hickory Hall. Therefore, candidates who live at a reasonable distance from campus may find this a more rewarding position than those who live far from campus.
  • When scheduling interviews for potential candidates, incoming graduate students who have been accepted and deposited will be given preference.

 

Successful applicants for this position need to be in good academic standing. Graduate students currently in their program need a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher and new graduate students need a cumulative 2.5 GPA or higher. Those interested in applying should provide:

  • A current resume
  • 1-2 letters of reference
  • A cover letter explaining your interest in this position and your status at Springfield College, specifically which graduate program are you applying for, accepted into, or currently in
