Language Tutor

Penn State Learning is not interviewing tutor candidates at this time. If you have questions about your qualifications, please contact R.  Neill Johnson at rnj1@psu.edu.


Penn State Learning, which supports undergraduate learning through peer tutoring and peer-guided study groups, hires qualified undergraduate students to work as Italian, French, Russian, Spanish, Hindi, Japanese, Arabic, and Chinese tutors. 

Candidates must be currently pursuing an undergraduate degree at the University Park campus, must have earned an A- or better in a 400- level course for the language they wish to tutor (or are a native speaker pursuing a major or minor in Linguistics, Education, ESL, or English). Preference will be given to sophomores or juniors who have prior tutoring experience and/or formal training in tutoring or teaching.

The successful candidate will be expected to work approximately three to ten hours each week providing one-on-one and small-group help to students in Basic Language Courses (001, 002, 003 ,100-level).

Candidates who do not have prior training will be required to complete CI 200: Peer Tutoring, our one-credit tutor training.
