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.
Peer Tutor Positions
Potential peer tutors need to have completed Composition I with a grade of "B" or higher. Paid tutors receive from $8.50 to $9.50 an hour; the higher pay rate is for tutors who have achieved CRLA Level I certification. 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 one of the CCRI Writing Centers.
Office Assistant Positions
Office assistants receive $8.00 an hour. To apply for one of these positions, a student needs to fill in
an application form. The form can be submitted electronically or brought into one of the CCRI Writing Centers.
