Attention, Juniors & Seniors!

Looking for a way to make a difference and give back?

Want to gain teaching/mentoring experience?

Want to learn about educational equity?

 

Sign up to be a Tutor-Mentor; take EDUC 401 L & M

UW’s Academic Support Programs is offering a service-learning seminar titled “EDUC 401: Higher Education Tutoring and Mentorship”. This weekly seminar introduces tutor-mentors to tutoring, mentoring, and teaching methodologies. Students apply what they learn in class through tutoring and mentoring new transfer, first-year, and sophomore students who are transitioning socially, culturally, and academically to the UW. This is a great opportunity for seasoned students to give back to the UW by sharing their knowledge and experience.

  • Seminar meets on Mondays from 3:30-4:50 PM or from 6:00-7:20 PM
  • Tutoring takes place anywhere on or near campus, you decide the times
  • Receive 2 credits for working with one student, or 3 credits for working with two students
  • A letter of recommendation will be available upon request after completion of the seminar
