Undergraduate writing tutors meet one-on-one with Temple students from all different majors and programs, with all different types of writing. A typical day may have you brainstorming about virtue in The Epic of Gilgamesh, jointly crafting a catchy opening for a study abroad essay to Tokyo, or helping streamline a business proposal for a food truck startup.

Writing tutors earn $12/hour and typically work 4-15 hours per week; the hours are flexible and can be scheduled around other obligations.

Who can apply:

All undergraduate students (any major, any department) are eligible to apply. We seek students who are strong academic writers, as evidenced by their writing samples. We particularly welcome applicants who
