UIC Writing Center
Tutor Recruitment Announcement
The UIC Writing Center is currently hiring tutors for the Spring 2021 semester.
We invite upper-classmen from all divisions and majors to apply!
Tutors are UIC upper-classmen who display exceptional writing skills and are passionate about helping other students with their writing. Students wishing to work as tutors at the Writing Center may apply to become a peer tutor or be nominated as a peer tutor by a UIC instructor. All candidates must submit an application (see below) and sit through an interview with Professor Seunghei Clara Hong, the Director of the Writing Center.
Tutors are required to: (a) work during the entire semester; (b) hold tutoring sessions for a given number of hours per week (usually 3-4 hours); (c) attend a pre-semester training workshop; (d) hold meetings with the Director to report and address students’ progress and needs; and (e) manage resources. Tutors will be awarded a UIC scholarship for the semester.
To apply, send (a) a letter of application (about your writing/peer-editing/tutoring experiences, approach to writing, and/or anything else you think relevant in 300 words); (b) a current CV; and (c) an academic writing sample (edited to no more than 1,300 words) from a UIC course (preferably a UIC Seminar) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline is January 15, 2021. Students will be notified by January 22, 2021 and those accepted will be invited for an online interview on January 29, 2021 (Zoom link to be provided in the invitation email). Please note that the pre-semester writing workshop for Spring 2021 will be held during the last week of February (one day between 24 and 26 TBD).
