The Russell E. Horn Sr. Learning Center at Penn State Harrisburg invites applications for student workers in a wage position as a Peer Tutor. Applications from graduate and undergraduate students will be reviewed in the following subject areas: Accounting 211, Accounting 340, Accounting 471, Finance 301 and Marketing 301. Tutor schedules are flexible and typically range between 5 and 20 hours per week, depending on a combination of experience and Tutor availability within the needs of the center. Student applicants must have an overall GPA of 3.3 or higher and at least a B+ in the course(s) they wish to tutor. Completion of an equivalent course or equivalent expertise may be considered in place of the course offered at Penn State Harrisburg. Peer Tutors must have completed or be in the process of completing at least 30 credits of course work. A portion of the 30 credits can be transfer credit or credit by examination (such as AP, CLEP) but the overall GPA of 3.3 needs to be established at Penn State Harrisburg on the basis of a semester or more of full-time study. Applicants with prior experience at another Penn State campus will be considered without the semester requirement. The applicant may not have had any current or pending judicial actions or cases within the Office of Student Conduct. All applications are retained and assured full consideration. Positions will be filled as needed. The Learning Center staff will contact applicants for an interview if the application and supporting documents are complete and if an appropriate opening is available.
