Tutor applications are currently open for the fall 2020 semester. Interviews will be held in late August / early September.
Tutoring offers multiple benefits, including, of course, altruism (you help out your fellow students) and self-interest (you make some extra cash). Tutoring also further develops and sharpens your disciplinary knowledge; in the process of tutoring, one's understanding of the discipline and field will become deeper and stronger. It also provides the opportunity to enhance tutoring-specific skill sets such as group facilitation, formulating clear and useful explanations, and making assessments. Skills which are applicable not only to teaching but also to medicine and other fields.
