The SJSU Upward Bound program is in
need of a few good math tutors for our summer program. This year we
will be offering geometry, algebra 2, and math analysis to 50 high
school students, in an intensive, accelerated 6-week program. Students
who earn a B or better in the course receive credit for one year of that
level of math from their high school.
Training begins June 4, and the courses begin June 11. The job announcement is attached below.
The Student Academic Success Services (SASS) unit is recruiting qualified students for Peer
Educator positions for the 2012 – 2013 academic year. If you know of
any students who excel in academics, have a passion for assisting
others, or are knowledgeable about the university, they may possess the
qualities to serve as a campus Peer Educator. Peer
Educators serve as role models for other SJSU students and assist them
in developing their potential and academic abilities to succeed in
college. As faculty and staff recommendations are highly valued, please
encourage your students to consider applying for the Peer Educator positions.
SASS is currently seeking applicants for the three types of Peer Educator positions. Below find a brief summary of each position and attached find the job description.
Peer Advisor – Peer Advisors assist students with academic adjustment to SJSU and to the major. Peer
Advisors are assigned to specific colleges (Applied Sciences &
Arts, Business, Science and Social Sciences) or Academic Advising and
Retention Services and assist students to navigate the degree, the
major, and academic policies/procedures. Peer
Advisors also provide referrals for students to other campus resources
as well as recommendations to students on how to further their
education/experience in their chosen major/profession.
Peer Mentor – Peer Mentors
support students in adjusting to SJSU both socially and
academically. They have knowledge regarding numerous campus resources
and assist students to more easily navigate the university. Peer Mentors
are assigned to individual instructors/departments in order to develop
smaller communities within SJSU and so that students have more
opportunities to be involved and engaged in their college experience.
Peer Tutor – Peer
Tutors work with students one to one or in small groups on specific
content/courses. The goals of tutoring are to assist students to
develop effective learning strategies, improve critical thinking and
academic/study skills, build self-confidence, and become independent
