We still need EE, CS, and Math Residential Tutors for summer 2015!
We also need Residential Assistants (apply)!
We will have 2015 staff profiles on this page starting in April.
Residential Tutors are current female MIT undergraduates, MEng students, or recent MIT graduates. They assist the WTP-EECS Instructors in the classroom, and also live in the dormitory with the high school students, chaperoning residential life, creating fun activities and field trips, and helping with homework. You do NOT have to be a Course 6 major. 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 bring young women in the engineering pipeline, please apply!
We will hire 9 WTP-EECS Residential Tutors for 2015: three for each of our classes: CS, EE, and Discrete Math. In addition to a love of teaching, each subject has the following background requirements:
Computer Science: Class is an introduction for students with NO prior background in programming. Tutors must have an in-depth understanding of 6.00/6.0001 level material; Python is a plus. Previous experience as an LA for 6.00, 60001, 6.001 or 6.S189 would be perfect.
Check the WTP-EECS curriculum page for more information about these classes in previous years.
For more details about the job and to apply, go to the WTP-EECS Residential Tutor Application Form Word document or .pdf and apply as soon as possible. We will interview and hire Tutors as applications are received, and hope to have a full staff in place by mid-April.
We are still seeking Residential Assistants to live in the dorm and help with evening and weekend activities. You do NOT have EE, CS, or Math classroom responsibilities, but will work primarily in the dorm. You will also help the WTP students design and build their motors in the Pappalardo lab (we will train you).
Although Residential Assistants usually attended WTP when they were in high school, this is NOT a requirement. Any female MIT student or recent graduate may apply. The important thing is to help make a warm community in the dorm, help keep the kitchen and common room organized and supplied, and lead weekend activities and field trips into Boston and Cambridge with the high school students. If you like baking, hanging out in the lounge, and going to Harvard Square for froyo, this is the perfect job for you.
For more details about the job and to apply, go to the WTP-EECS Residential Assistant Application form Word document or .pdf. We will interview prospective Residential Assistants as applications are received.
