Gelia Dolcimascolo, writing tutor at Perimeter College, Dunwoody Campus, serves as group facilitator.
All applicants will need to provide a transcript of all course work and at least two references. Faculty and/or employer references are preferred. Peer tutor applicants will need two faculty references.
The Learning and Tutoring Center (LTC) of Perimeter College employs tutors who have individual or group tutoring experience in writing, reading, literature, ESL, mathematics, the sciences, accounting, and economics.
Tutors work with individual students or small groups, and assist with the operation of the LTC by creating learning tools and handouts, helping students and faculty access and use LTC resources, and explaining and enforcing LTC policies.
The LTC employs both peer (undergraduate students at PC or another college) and professional (applicants with a bachelor’s degree or higher) tutors. Applicants are evaluated for proficiency in the appropriate discipline (math, writing, science, etc.). Peer tutors must have at least a 3.0 GPA in the subjects to be tutored and a 2.6 GPA overall, as well as a minimum of 15 semester-hour credits in college-level courses.
TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) at Perimeter College seeks SSS Academic Tutor(s) to provide tutorial services/academic enrichment for SSS participants in the areas of math, science (i.e. chemistry, biology), English and reading. TRIO SSS program provides academic, personal, social, financial, cultural and technological services to low-income, disabled and first-generation college students. The Academic Tutor carries out TRIO Student Support Services’ plan of operation for student success as it relates to the tutorial component and the grant’s objectives.
Tutors will provide direct assistance to students in reaching their academic goals as well as support to the TRIO SSS Program in its concerted efforts to increase the retention, graduation and transfer rates of first generation, low income and/or disabled college students enrolled at Perimeter College.
TRIO SSS employs tutors with a bachelor’s degree in the desired area (or a closely related field) in which candidate seeks to provide tutorial assistance. Undergraduates (juniors and seniors only) with excellent preparation will be strongly considered. All applicants must have at least 15 semester hours/23 quarter hours in the area they wish to provide tutorial assistance. A minimum GPA of 3.0 in the discipline courses is required. Candidates desiring evening, afternoon, and weekend hours will be considered; however, strong preference will be given to qualified applicants who are available Mon-Fri during morning through afternoon hours. Experience working with low-income, disabled and/or first generation college students is a plus.
LTC receptionists provide basic clerical support for the Center, with the goal of ensuring that visitors get the most from LTC services.
Typical duties include:
- greeting visitors to the LTC with a smile
- ensuring visitors sign-in and sign-out on the TutorTrac computer
- helping first-time visitors sign-up for tutoring and to access material
- checking materials in and out
- helping student with basic computer concerns
- ensuring that visitors comply with LTC policies
- answering phones and taking messages
- keeping the LTC orderly
- assisting with data gathering
- opening and closing
- and lots more!
Receptionists must be knowledgeable about all aspects of the LTC, so they can answer students’ questions. Only PC students with a 2.5 GPA or above in all college-level coursework are considered for the receptionist position in the LTC. The receptionist position is staffed by student assistants (must be taking at least 6 credit hours) or work-study employees.
Each of the five Perimeter campuses has its own LTC and hires GAs to work alongside professional and peer tutors. GAs may tutor any of the following subjects or combination of subjects:
- Minimum 3.0 GPA
- Resume & cover letter
- Unofficial transcripts
