"Classic" Peer Tutors - Job Description (pdf)

Tutors at Peer Connections are nationally certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Peer Connections tutors are undergraduate and graduate students who have demonstrated proficiency in the subjects that they tutor (usually by having completed the courses they are tutoring with an "A" or a "B"). Each applicant must successfully complete the interview preparation and screening process before being considered for a tutoring position.

Peer Mentors - Job Description (pdf)

Peer Mentors support students during their academic and social adjustment to SJSU. Peer Mentors know how to refer students to appropriate campus resources in order to navigate more easily through the university system. Peer Mentors work with individual instructors/departments to develop smaller communities within SJSU that more actively involve and engage students in their college experience.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leaders - Job Description (pdf)

Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leaders support students who are enrolled in 'bottleneck' courses - subjects that are required but that also have a higher failure rate, such that a student who receives a failing grade may have delayed progress in their major. SI Leaders facilitate workshops and study sessions outside of the regularly scheduled class time. These sessions are focused on active student involvement and incorporate both content and learning strategies.

Embedded Tutors - Job Description (pdf)

Embedded Tutors are assigned to a specific course. They provide course content support for students enrolled in their assigned course, including being present in the classroom. Embedded Tutors are available for one-on-one and/or small group tutoring during their office hours at Peer Connections.

Learning Assistants - Job Description (pdf)

Learning Assistants are undergraduate students who are able to work closely with faculty and staff to provide feedback to them about the course and how students feel about the course materials. LAs work in a small teaching team with faculty members who are invested in implementing ‘hands on,’ application-based learning in and outside the classroom. From an LA’s perspective, that might include facilitating group discussion, guiding student groups through problem sets, or meeting with students outside of class to discuss key concepts. Learning Assistants do not grade, hold office hours, or lecture.
