General Tutoring Job Information
Opportunities for 2015-2016
Each spring, the Writing Lab at Purdue recruits consultants (i.e. tutors) for the next academic year, and we are now accepting applications for 2014-2015. Follow the links below for information about each tutoring staff group. For more information about tutoring opportunities in the Writing Lab, please contact Tammy Conard-Salvo, Writing Lab Associate Director.
We are interested in reflecting the diversity of the Purdue community. Students from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply for positions in the Writing Lab.
The Writing Lab only employs graduate students in English at Purdue University for graduate tutoring jobs. We do not accept applications from graduate students in other departments or from other institutions, and students must have assistantship funding through the English Department.
Information about the position and application materials, can be found in the section Opportunities for Purdue Graduate Students in English. We are no longer accepting applications for graduate tutor positions for 2015-2016. The next opportunity to apply would be in Spring 2016 for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Purdue undergraduate students of any major who are interested in working in the Writing Lab must first take a Tutoring Practicum course before being eligible for employment. You have the option of taking English 390A if you would like to tutor students in First Year Composition (English 106 or 108). You may take English 390B if you are interested in tutoring Business, Technical, and Professional Writing.
Information and application materials can be found in the Opportunities for Purdue Undergraduate Students section. We are now accepting applications for the fall 2015 sections of ENGL 390A and ENGL 390B. The deadline for applications is 6:00 pm on Monday, March 23, 2015.
