Fall 2018 CSE Tutor Applications

If you wish to apply for a CSE Tutor position for Fall quarter, you will be able to do so through our online Tutor application listed at the bottom. Below, you will find information about eligibility and requirements to help you decide whether you wish to apply to Tutor and how to do so effectively.  

Process and timeline: Students apply to Tutor (July 2nd is the priority deadline), instructors mark their preferences for Tutors (begins July 2nd, the department assigns Tutors to classes and sends out the official offer (e.g., appointment letter) August until all jobs are filled, and students accept or decline the offer (by the date given in the appointment letter or earlier).  

Fall 2018 Tutor application priority deadline is the end of the day on Monday, July 2.

  • Please do NOT apply for a Tutor position unless you will be available to fulfill Tutor duties for Fall September 24th-December 18th (official start of the quarter through day grades are due). 
  • Advisors or course instructors often encourage students to apply to Tutor for a specific course, but this is not a job offer.  ONLY the department makes the official job offer through ASES. 
  • While the department is the only entity that can make the official job offer, we rely heavily on the input of faculty since they are the experts on their subject. We are not qualified to decide who has the right knowledge and skill set to Tutor any specific course.
  • You should not start preparing to Tutor for a course until you have received an official appointment letter from the department and accepted the position. 
  • The Tutor application is for submitting requests only.  We will make every effort to accommodate them, but there is no guarantee that you will be given a Tutor position or that you will be assigned to Tutor one of your preferred courses.
  • We do NOT know that enrollments will be high enough to warrant a Tutor in all of the classes listed on the application. In other words, just because a course is listed as an option does not mean that a Tutor will be assigned to it.
  • Students may not be a Tutor for courses in which they are enrolled.
  • Tutors must complete CSE 95 either prior to or concurrently with their first Tutor position. 
  • Tutors may be asked to attend lectures, lead discussion or lab sections, and proctor midterm and final exams. You should be available to do so for any classes you mark as Tutor preferences.
  • The 2017-18 hourly rate was $17.97/hr. The  2018-19 hourly rate for an undergraduate Tutor is TBD. 

To qualify, you must:

  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0
  • Have completed at least two quarters at UCSD by the start of Fall 2018
  • Earned a minimum grade of B or higher in course (or its equivalent), although usually those selected have a higher grade
  • All tutors must be registered students at UCSD for the quarter of employment.
  • Completion or concurrent enrollment of CSE 95; enrollment will open after appointment notification.

The following faculty expressly request that applicants do not contact them directly regarding Tutor positions.  These faculty will use ASES to evaluate candidates.  Any and all information that will help your application should be listed there.

  • Professor Kamalika Chaudhuri
  • Professor Leo Porter
  • Professor Marina Langlois
  • Professor Laurel Riek
  • Professor Miles Jones
  • Professor Daniel Kane
  • Professor Hau Nguyen
