Huron is unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. With the aim to redefine Liberal Arts education, Huron is creating a university experience unlike any other that prioritizes ethical leadership and community engagement, as much as the pursuit of academic achievement.
As the founding college of Western University, since 1863, Huron has remained strategically small to best serve the needs of its students. We provide an elite, yet accessible, education, because every student with the passion and work ethic to positively change our world deserves to access the knowledge to understand it and the skills to shape it. Huron’s mission is to develop Leaders with Heart from all backgrounds and foster a vibrant and inclusive community and prepare students to be engaged citizens who transform the sectors they work within.
The Writing and Learning Centre at Huron University College is looking to hire a math tutor, competent in the following areas: calculus, algebra, finite math, and matrix algebra.
This role is a year-long commitment. We are looking for an individual who is academically motivated and has a drive to help others achieve their academic goals. This position has a flexible schedule that works around your own. It also offers an amazing opportunity for personal and professional development.
The ideal candidate will be a well-rounded and high-achieving individual who has great interpersonal and communication skills as they will be working one on one with other students. The tutor will work with students at various stages of their post-secondary education at Huron and aid them in developing their skills and understanding their subject area. They will conduct the sessions through in-person, synchronous, and asynchronous appointments. Tutors are expected to be competent and confident in their subjects and should hold a passion for working with university level students and peers.
We are looking for a tutor who is patient, organized, understanding, articulate, and excels in expounding information. Previous experience working or engaging with the Huron community is considered an asset but is not a requirement. The ability to work in high-stress situations would also be beneficial as students may come in with quickly approaching deadlines. Excellent time management and organizational skills are also considered an asset for success in this role.
