Paid peer tutor and office assistant positions sometimes are available in the CCRI Writing Centers. Volunteer positions also are occasionally available. All of these positions look great on a resume! Plus, helping other students to improve their writing is one of the best ways to enhance one's own communication and collaborative skills, both of which are needed to be successful in college courses, in a career, and in our daily interactions with others.
These paid peer tutoring positions are really great ways to help other students, as well as to enhance one's own skills. Potential peer tutors need to have completed Composition I with a grade of "B" or higher. To apply for a peer tutor position, a student needs to fill in an application form and have a current or a past professor fill in a faculty recommendation form. The forms can be submitted electronically or brought into the CCRI Knight Campus Writing Center.
Office assistant positions are currently unavailable in the CCRI Writing Centers. However, if a student is interested in a possible future position, he/she can fill in an application form. The form can be submitted electronically or brought into the CCRI Knight Campus Writing Center.
