Tutoring in the School of Information Management

Information about applying to become a tutor at the School of Information Management.

The undergraduate programme in the School of Information Management (SIM) is built around an extensive tutorial programme for 100, 200, and 300 level courses.

We’re looking for passionate graduates and/or students majoring in Information Systems (or Data Science for DATA101) who have obtained a grade of B+ or higher in the courses you would like to tutor.

These tutoring positions are based in Wellington, between Kelburn and Pipitea campuses. Some positions may include an online component which you might be required to be on campus for.

A successful candidate will have:

  • preferably completed course(s) they wish to tutor within the last two years
  • achieved well in courses that they wish to tutor and have a good academic transcript in general
  • some experience in tutoring or other relevant areas
  • good people skills and a high level of confidence, or be looking forward to building confidence
  • a passion and interest in Information Management education
  • excellent communication and organising skills, and
  • willingness to work as part of a flexible, close-knit, and collaborative team.

Ideally, you’ll be returning to study as these are part-time positions, of roughly 10 hours a week. These hours will fluctuate depending on course, marking schedule, and assessment types. Opportunities may be available for individuals seeking fewer than 10 hours work a week.
