GSG Employment - Spring 2017

We currently do not have any positions open for the spring semester.  Please check back in mid-March to inquire about fall 2017 openings.  Thank you for your interest in becoming a Guided Study Groups leader.

Tutorial assistance for the courses below can be obtained by participating in Guided Study Groups (GSG). GSG sessions are free and are lead two to three times a week by an undergraduate peer leader, who has previously met success in the course.  GSG sessions are held during the fall and spring semesters.  For assistance during summer sessions, please refer to our "TUTORING" tab for information and hours.
