Tutoring opportunities

We have a limited number of tutor positions available each semester for 100-level through to 300-level papers. Preference is given to Politics postgraduate students, although other suitably qualified students may be considered.

Being a tutor is a great way to enhance your CV and build your experience in speaking to and working with groups of people.

The work involves preparation for and conducting of small group tutorials and providing general teaching support within the parameters specified by the academic staff member who has responsibility for the overall teaching of the paper in question. Some tutors may also be required to mark assignments such as tests or essays.

The number of hours of employment per week depends on the requirements of the particular paper.
