Join Our Staff

Thanks for your interest in joining the TLC staff!

We offer study groups for a large variety of introductory courses across all three colleges, staff math help sessions for Calculus I-III and Statistics, and offer one-on-one tutoring appointments in some introductory STEM courses. You may apply to be a study group facilitator or math help session leader, and have the option of adding up to 90 minutes of one-on-one tutoring per week. You may work in any course for which you qualify (by having earned an A- or above). To join our staff, students must either be nominated by or have a recommendation from at least one professor in the relevant content area.

All TLC staff members will attend a weekly staff meeting to progress through our staff curriculum. Those who successfully complete the first year of our training program will be awarded the internationally recognized title of CRLA Certified Level 1 Tutor. Staff who choose to continue will progress to Level 2 Advanced staff. Pay rates and autonomy increase at each staffing level.

Please email learning@bucknell.edu with any questions.

Join our staff (Applications are posted 4-6 weeks before each semester ends.)

Study Groups Program

TLC study groups provide meaningful and efficient mechanisms for learning; they can help students keep up with material, actively review and study and engage with diverse perspectives. Your group will meet every week for 90 minutes at a time that you choose. Groups are heterogeneous but organized by professor; any student enrolled in a particular professor's section of a course served by the program is eligible to join a group. You will facilitate group members working together to clarify course material, engage in deep processing techniques for learning and active problem-solving. There may be some options to co-facilitate occasionally. You can lead more than one group and/or lead in one or more subjects per term.

Study group course coverage may vary based on staffing.

Tutoring Program

TLC tutoring offers assistance to students seeking extra help in some introductory courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics. New tutors must also lead a study group in their first semester on the TLC staff in order to ensure adequate student contact hours in their content area to progress through our staff curriculum. New tutors will schedule one weekly tutoring appointment, which can be booked by any student in that course. You will staff your assigned tutoring location during your weekly tutoring time even if not all your appointments are booked in advance. We will pay you for 30 minutes of prep time in addition to your group meeting and tutoring appointment times. You must commit to your regular weekly tutoring schedule after training and continue it throughout the semester.
