Undergraduate Jobs

Undergraduate Students teaching Recitation 

Recitation Leaders

Recitation Leaders supplement the learning done in large lecture classes by conducting recitation sessions for students in those classes. Recitation leaders work with faculty members in providing instruction in a formalized classroom setting to students at a more individual level. The goal is to provide a manageable instructor to student teaching ratio so that students can better grasp the material from the classes. Recitation leaders must have a solid understanding of the classes they are assisting with. For specific requirements see the qualifications listed below.  

Tutors

A tutor works with students in the Aggie Math Learning Center (AMLC) to assist with their homework in their mathematics or statistics classes.Tutors normally have completed several university math or statistics classes and generally must be able to tutor at least MATH 2250, or MATH 2280, or STAT 3000. If you have not completed those courses but have a solid math or stats background and are enrolled in those courses during the current semester we will also consider your application. For specific requirements see the qualifications listed below.    

Math/Stat Teaching Fellows 

A Math / Stat Teaching Fellows (MSTF) may have many different responsibilities based on the needs of the department.  Some of the normal responsibilities of a MSTF may include duties including assisting the instructor in holding office hours, hosting and facilitating review sessions, or grading course work for instructors. This position often requires mandatory departmental developmental training. MSTFs often go on to later become tutors or recitation leaders.  For specific requirements see the qualifications listed below.

 

Spring 2021. We have concluded interviews for Spring 2021 for all positions except for Math / Stats Teaching Fellows (MSTFs).  MSTFs are hired on an as needed basis to fill specific requirements (see description above).  If you desire a position as an MSTF complete the application.  When a specific need comes up students who have applied as MSTFs may be contacted if they meet the position requirements.

Fall 2021.  We expect to advertise for Fall Tutor and Recitation Leader positions in April, 2021.
