Frequently Asked Questions

-Drop-in Tutors work in the following subjects:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science & Engineering
  • Economics
  • Math
  • Physics
  • Statistics
  • Writing

-Discussion/Upstairs Session Leaders are chosen by faculty teaching a specific section of a course. They can be the current TA for the course or a student who has done well that the professor selects. The leader is hired on by APS to run weekly sessions for that quarter the class is being taught. 

No, ASP only hires UW undergraduate and graduate students (those who will be students for the school year hired).

A Discussion/Upstairs Session Leader does not have to be an undergraduate or even a student at all.

We hire the bulk of our positions in spring quarter for the next academic year. 

There is a Google Form to be filled out and materials to submit.

We will look through applications and select the top candidates to interview. We will notify everyone about whether they received an interview or not. Interviews will be conducted during spring quarter after the application closes. We will then notify interviewees if they are hired or not. If hired, we will collect some information/paperwork to have the candidate begin shadowing current tutors.

If a position becomes available throught the year, we will post and take applications at that time but that would be an exception. 

Yes, you can apply for more than one subject. You cannot be hired to work more than one subject. If you are selected to interview for more than one subject, you may find out if you were hired for one subject before interviewing for the second subject. You will need to decide if you prefer that first subject and drop out of interviews for the second subject or decline the first subject and interview for the second, not knowing if you will get the position. 

Read through the position description to see what the required courses and requirements are for each of the positions.

That depends on your level of education. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the pay rate is $16.72/hour for undergraduate students and $20.46/hour for graduate students. These rates will go into effect July 1st 2020. 

Submit your application and required materials when applications open. There will be a link to an application posted if we are hiring. When we are not hiring we do not open the application.
