Overview  

The Tutoring and Academic Support Center (TASC) is a place where students can receive support on materials and assignments for many classes, including their critical thinking (A3) course. We are looking for tutors who can provide such support, particularly for students taking PHIL 110. Critical Thinking/PHIL 110 tutors help students learn how to read a philosophical text for comprehension and encourage the development of their reasoning and analytic capabilities. Tutors also provide constructive, specific feedback to help students work through their ideas and formulate them in writing.  

  

About this Job   

TASC tutors are SF State students who are passionate about teaching, learning, and working with students to develop reading, writing, and academic study skills across all majors. Throughout the semester, tutors provide support in one-on-one appointments, drop-in sessions, group study, and workshops.  

A successful critical thinking tutor will have a mind for, and be interested in, philosophy and logic; but they need not be someone who has always excelled in the subject. In fact, the best tutors are often those who understand the difficulties through personal experience, because they have found ways to overcome them and are now eager to share their secrets. Ideal candidates are also: 

  • Empathetic and willing to work with students who may struggle to read/understand philosophical ideas, or to grasp principles of logic and effective reasoning 

  • Open-minded and interested in learning different tutoring strategies  

  • Collaborative and willing to share experiences and ideas with other tutors  

  • Reliable, communicative, and responsive via email  

Tutors receive paid training: an all-staff workshop on the first Saturday after the semester starts, a weekly training session led by TASC faculty (Wednesday from 12-1pm or from 1-2pm), and self-guided trainings for additional topics as desired. Training is required and begins the first week of classes; new tutors start tutoring after the first month of training. 

 

Qualifications  

  • Current SF State student enrolled at least half time (6 units for undergrad / 4 units for grad)  

  • GPA of 3.0 or higher 

  • Must have successfully completed PHIL 110 or equivalent with a B or higher, or be a current graduate student in philosophy 

  • Faculty recommendations are strongly encouraged  

  • Preference will be given to applicants who can tutor critical thinking and oral communications, can make a year-long commitment, and are able to work both in person and online. 

 

Hours of Work  

  • TASC is open on campus and online. Check the TASC website to see current hours. Hours may change semester to semester. 

  • Tutors must be able to work a minimum of 8-12 hours per week, which includes the weekly training session (not to exceed 20 hours/week). 

  • The position may extend into the following semester upon receiving a positive evaluation. 

 

Required Documents  

  • Resume and Cover Letter  

  • Transcript (unofficial transcripts from your Student Center are sufficient)  

  • Names and contact info for at least one academic reference (preferably a PHIL 110 or PHIL 101 instructor)  

  • Sample assignment from PHIL 110 or A3 equivalent (e.g., final project, journal entry, etc.), unless you are a graduate student 

 

Future Opportunities at TASC 

There are other options for getting involved in TASC once you have worked with us for one semester: Serve as an embedded tutor, attending classes regularly, taking notes on class materials, participating in discussions by answering and asking questions, facilitating group breakout sessions, serving as a model student, and assisting students in tutorial sessions outside of the class environment.  

Become a student project lead, working collaboratively with other leads and TASC faculty and staff on projects that support SF State students, tutors, and instructors, upholding the center vision of creating equitable and welcoming environments so that everyone can learn.  

Applications are ongoing with priority consideration given to early applicants. Most interviews will take place soon after the application closes, and hiring decisions would be made soon after.
