Personal Statement Writing Instructor
Camp Location: UC Berkeley
Camp Dates: June 18 - 29, 2017
The Personal Statement Writing Instructor is responsible for guiding students through Education Unlimited's Personal Statement Writing curriculum and helping students produce one or more (depending on the session) personal statement essay(s) that are ready or nearly ready for submission with their college applications. The goal of the curriculum is to help each student through the process of brainstorming, writing and revising a strong essay that is entirely the student's own work. The instructor will deliver group lectures on writing for college admissions and will give students one-on-one feedback on their essays. Instructors will also be responsible for tracking student work and handing in any deliverables to the camp director and EU home office. Instructors should be knowledgeable about the college admissions process, have experience teaching writing, and should be enthusiastic about guiding students through the writing process and the process of personal discovery.
In addition to teaching responsibilities, instructors should be available and willing to assist the camp director with active supervision, recreational activities, and some administrative tasks. Instructors should be mature, reliable, and able to work well with fellow staffers. Instructors are also expected to act as mentors, and will help lead field trips and guide students on excursions. With the support of the entire staff, instructors are responsible for the health and safety of students, in addition to fulfilling instructional objectives.
This is a residential position — room, board, and parking on campus is provided for the duration of the program. We will also consider instructors who wish to commute daily but preference is given for those candidates who are willing to live on campus and assist with dorm supervision. Instructors may be hired for one session or for multiple sessions of this program. Please indicate your availability on your application.
