Staff Testimonials

"I feel as though working as a tutor has made me responsible in some small part for the academic success of the overall ASU community. Through my work, I feel I am making a difference in students' experiences, which has also created a sense of responsibility I did not previously have."

"I am able to interact with individuals from social and academic groups I would never otherwise meet. Additionally, the collaborative nature of the tutoring center has introduced me to some of my closest friends and created a place where academic, social, and professional support exist simultaneously."


"I like working for UASP because my coworkers are so warm and willing to share their knowledge, that it feels like we are a team working to better our campus."

Tutoring Center and Writing Center Employment

In the United States, 80 percent of undergraduate students and many graduate students work while going to school. Working fifteen hours or fewer while in college has been proven to increase student success. What better place to work than for the ASU Tutoring Centers and Writing Centers, where you can reinforce your academic knowledge while working with your peers.

University Academic Success Programs (UASP) employs undergraduate and graduate students as desk aides, tutors, writing tutors, supplemental instruction (SI study group) leaders, online tutors, graduate writing tutors, and graduate statistics tutors.

UASP is looking for students to work in a peer to peer model to serve the diverse ASU student population. Furthermore, UASP peer staff collaborates with students to develop shared learning experiences to enhance success. UASP is committed to creating welcoming spaces for learners, providing ongoing professional development to professional and student staff, and engaging in a continual examination of our policies and practices. ASU is measured not by whom it excludes but by whom it includes and UASP is committed to supporting the charter by helping all learners succeed. Furthermore, UASP collaborates with faculty members to develop shared learning experiences to enhance student success.
