Graduate STEM Learning Positions


Graduate STEM Tutor

Graduate STEM tutors meet with students one-on-one to help them succeed in challenging math and science courses. Tutors review and explain course content and concepts, and they help students understand homework and other assignments. Tutors also work with students as they prepare for major exams, helping them to prioritize their work, and to create effective plans for studying and managing time.

Graduate STEM learning positions are Teaching Assistantships; they carry stipends, tuition remission and benefits in accordance with the current TUGSA contract. We offer full-time (20 hours per week), half-time (10 hours per week) and quarter-time (5 hours per week) positions. The work hours are flexible and can be scheduled around other obligations.
