Academic Program Manager - Two Positions

Stanford Summer Session announces two six-month part-time positions (~20 hours/week in Summer, ~10-20 hours/week in Spring) designed to give Stanford graduate students the opportunity to explore careers in higher education beyond faculty positions. The two Academic Program Managers will engage in three key areas of work related to academic support programming for visiting and matriculated Summer Session students: curriculum development, program management, and academic advising. They will develop programming and curricula for the Summer Academic Resource Center (SARC), which houses academic advising, subject area tutoring, and language conversation partners. They will be supervised and trained by the Assistant Director of Academic Programs and will work with their supervisor to reflect on their career trajectory and develop skills and resources for the job search.

Your responsibilities include:

  • Holding regular drop-in tutoring sessions in STEM and Writing

  • Designing, promoting, and implementing academic skills workshops

  • Serving as academic role models for students

  • Some tutors work as language conversation partners

Successful candidates will have proven academic success and a genuine interest in the subject area(s) they wish to tutor. Experience in tutoring or teaching is preferred. The ideal candidate will be highly autonomous and able to multitask and manage multiple assignments. 

Application process for Summer Tutors be announced Winter 2020.
