Athletics Hiring Tutors for Spring 2022 Semester

Posted by Tim on January 3, 2022 in Community Announcements, Student Job Opportunities, Tutoring

Athletics Tutor

Athlete Academic Affairs in the Division of Athletics at UB is looking for Athletics Tutor candidates who are completing an undergraduate, master’s degree or pursuing a doctorate degree to assist in academic achievement, skill enrichment, and learning strategies with student-athletes for specific classes.  The desired candidate will work with academically at-risk student-athletes, who might be first-year students (freshmen/transfer), are struggling learners, have a diagnosed disability, are International, or are high performing students that are looking for extra help in a class.


  • This position will assist student athletes with a specific class that they may be struggling with, confused on subject matter or need extra assistance to obtain a higher grade.


  • Mentoring and monitoring and teaching a cohort of student-athletes by:
    • Implementing college-level academic skills and learning strategies.
    • Implementing personal learning skills to re-teach or review classwork and class materials.
    • Exam review, writing preparation, skill building, class review and work.
    • Promoting and facilitating academic and personal growth to help students become independent learners.
  • Documenting on-going student performance and meeting summaries with up-to-date record keeping through Navigate (UB’s student success portal).
  • Building and maintaining thoughtful and professional communication with the Athlete Academic Affairs Staff.
  • Working in a supportive and multi-disciplinary environment.


  • All meetings must take place at the Athlete Academic Affairs Learning Center during business hours (M-Th 8am-9pm, F 8am-4pm, and Sundays 12-6pm).
  • The nature of this position is very flexible for both you and your student caseload however, meeting days and times should remain consistent throughout the semester.
  • Given that you will be meeting with student-athletes anywhere from 1-3 times each week (based on pre-determined need), the meetings should be spread out throughout the week to ensure academic task completion. For example, meeting with a student 1 hour each day on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday throughout the semester.

**Ideally looking for candidates that can work 7-15 hours/week across multiple days.

If interested, please email resume and cover letter to:
