Tutoring at ELS

Do you like working with (fellow) students, are you interested in supporting them in their personal development and facilitating their learning process in skills education? At ELS we are always looking for enthusiastic students who would like to assist during one or more of our Presentation Skills or Argumentation Skills courses. Tutoring small groups of students, facilitating the presentation sessions in which the students give and receive feedback on their presentations, and if necessary asking reflective questions.

Time investment

A course is generally 3 sessions – mornings or afternoons. We ask you to be present during all 3 sessions. During session 2 and 3 you will have an active role as a tutor. Afterwards, you will grade students’ presentations and reflection papers.

Compensation

Next to the fact that tutoring at ELS is all about supporting your own development you will be compensated €6,25 per hour. If you’d rather receive ECTS instead of money, please sign up for the course ECS-52306 Teaching and Training Skills and develop your teaching and training skills while learning on the job as a tutor.

Assistant meetings

To get familiar with all the ins and outs of tutoring we will plan meetings for you to attend. Next to that, you will have an online course through BlackBoard. The meetings are mandatory if this is your first time tutoring in our courses. You get a one hour compensation for each meeting.
