Remote Online Writing Center Instructor Application
We are seeking a talented and hungry writing instructor that can engage in lively discussions with our students through our online writing platform and provide insightful and timely commentary on their work. Writing assignments and feedback are submitted entirely through our website, and your job will entail scoring students' assignments in addition to providing meaningful feedback. Our ideal candidate holds a stable full time job, but is hungry to make a difference in students' lives in his or her spare time. This role is meant to be an interesting part-time job that yields additional long term stable income. In other words, we are seeking a long term partner that will grow together with us and our students.
Student feedback involves much more than merely correcting superficial grammatical errors and word choice. Although mechanics are undeniably important, the instructor's personal influence should be imparted that encourages, inspires, and motivates our students to write. Special attention must be paid to the coherency of arguments, author's voice, and organizational issues.

- A liberal arts degree from an accredited American university.
- Confidence in his or her own writing ability.
