Working as a Tutor

The ETC hires tutors every semester. We look for applicants willing to tutor ESL students in English. The work environment requires detail-oriented and goal-driven tutors who are willing to impact others. Tutors get the opportunity to work with students from different countries. Diversity is a big part of the ETC.

Applicants should meet the following requirements:

  • Native or near-native English fluency
  • Must have completed FDENG 101/150 and received an A
  • GPA of 3.0 or above T
  • OEFL score above 80 or ACT score above 20
  • Must be available for at least three semesters
  • Preference will be given to TESOL majors/minors
  • Hours are flexible, but you need to commit to a minimum of 10 hours of availability per week.

Further instructions on how to apply are found on the job board. If the navigation link below does not work, then we are most likely not accepting applications at the moment.
