Job Description: The Learning Resource Center (LRC)—UMass Amherst’s flagship academic and research support center—is hiring Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leaders for spring 2019.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an informal, peer-led review session for a course: a student who has excelled in the course facilitates two 75-minute review sessions a week for that course.

SI Leaders are also required to attend class meetings for the course they lead, create worksheets to promote course review, address student questions and concerns, and attend regular trainings. This adds up to a minimum of 9 hours per week.

Ideal candidates will be self-motivated and empathetic, have strong communication skills, and excellent facilitation and classroom management skills.

Successful applicants will have received an A or A- in the class they support, and most have excelled in several of our high-demand courses.

We give preference to applicants with a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
