Additional Detail


Job Description:
Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) is a nonresidential two-year institution of higher education that serves Central Virginia - principally residents of the City of Charlottesville and the counties of Albemarle, Buckingham, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson. Our scenic campus is located in Albemarle County, Virginia. We are one of 23 community colleges in Virginia that comprise the Virginia Community College System (VCCS).




Purpose:
Through robust staff education, writing tutors collaborate with students to develop their writing across disciplines, as well as their skills in other subjects in the humanities taught at Piedmont Virginia Community College. Other subjects are based on the tutor’s academic background and comfort level. Writing tutors may also be embedded in developmental reading and writing courses to build connections with the Writing Center and to support students one-on-one, in small groups or whole class activities.


Duties and Responsibilities: Tutors work with students individually and collectively in writing and may also work with students in foreign languages, humanities, and social sciences. Rather than teaching students, tutors collaborate with and model the thinking and processes (such as using course resources, working with others, asking questions, navigating the library, etc.) that can support success in their classes. Tutors document their work and participate in regular staff development (both online and in person) and develop resources to support student writing at PVCC. Tutors also give and receive feedback, using this feedback to further grow their skills.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Desire to work with and learn from others
  • Strong listening skills
  • Commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Demonstrates academic resilience, development, and success, especially in the subjects in which they tutor
  • Able to communicate clearly and effectively
  • Able to maintain confidentiality
  • Responsible, dependable, and honest

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Has sought tutoring in academic work
