Residential Tutors

Residential Tutors are current female MIT or Wellesley undergraduates, MEng students, or recent graduates. They assist the WTP-EECS Instructors in the EE, CS, or Math classrooms as TAs, and also live in the dormitory with the high school students, chaperoning residential life, creating fun activities and field trips, and helping with homework.

We currently still have openings for EE or CS Tutors who are female MIT juniors, seniors, or recent graduates, to balance out the staff ages on those class teams. We have filled all of the Math Tutor positions.

You do not have to be a Course 6 major! Tutors must have a dedication to mentoring and teaching and an enthusiasm for EECS that they want to communicate to younger women.

The Residential Tutor Job Description has details about the position and schedule. Check the curriculum page for information about WTP-EECS classes to better understand the requisite Tutor backgrounds needed for each subject.

If you are looking for an alternative to a summer internship or UROP, or are graduating from MIT in June and want to do something fun that also "gives back" to young women in the engineering pipeline, please apply!

To Apply:
1) Complete the WTP-EECS Tutor Application Form
2) Also Email to WTP-EECS your Resume AND most current Grade Report/Unofficial Transcript to request an interview. If you are a first-year student and do not yet have a grade report, indicate that in the email text.

Residential Assistants

Residential Assistants are typically rising MIT sophomores. They do not usually have enough technical knowledge of EE, CS, or Math to be a classroom Residential Tutor. Some attended WTP when they were in high school. They live in the dorm and help create a warm and welcoming community, organizing study breaks and weekend exploration of Boston and Cambridge.

RAs will be trained to assist in the classroom for the final motor building project, but do not have academic or tutoring responsibilities for other WTP-EECS classes. The Residential Assistant Job Description has details about the position and schedule.

To Apply:
1) Complete the WTP-EECS Residential Assistant Application Form
2) Also Email to WTP-EECS your Resume AND most current Grade Report/Unofficial Transcript to request an interview. If you are a first-year student and do not yet have a grade report, indicate that in the email text.

WTP Director and WTP-EECS Track Coordinator

Cynthia Skier

MIT alumna: SB 1974 Humanities and Science
SM 1981 Sloan Management
Hometown: Lexington, MA

I have been the WTP Director since fall 2002, after the first pilot summer of WTP. Before that I managed computer software companies and worked in management consulting. My two children are grown and living in other cities. In my free time I like to sing, read mysteries, and watch old movies, especially film noire, musicals and science fiction. In addition to my WTP responsibilities, I also direct the Industrial Connection Program in the MIT EECS department.
