Welcome to Mount Tamalpais College's application survey for teaching and tutoring in the Writing Program for Spring 2022. Thank you for your interest in supporting our students! We could not provide a high-quality academic program for incarcerated students without the dedication and generosity of our volunteer instructors and tutors.
We will start reviewing applications on November 8, 2021. While we will still accept applications past the deadline, applications received by the deadline will be prioritized.
The first pages of this application provide information about basic prison rules that all volunteers must be able to comply with, our course offerings in the social sciences and humanities this spring, the opportunities available for instructors and tutors, the minimum required qualifications for instructors and tutors, and required training for all volunteers. Please read these pages closely and fill out the application only if you are able to comply with all the requirements.
The application will ask you to upload a recent CV or resume and, if you are new, to provide a short statement of why you are interested in volunteering with Mount Tamalpais College. You may want to have these things prepared before you begin the application. The entire application takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
All applicants should have a demonstrated commitment to Mount Tamalpais College's mission to provide an intellectually rigorous, inclusive education and to foster equity, civic engagement, independence of thought, and freedom of expression.
We will notify faculty of placements on a rolling basis throughout December 2022. Spring classes begin on January 18, 2022 and study hall tutoring begins on January 25, 2022. Faculty for the Spring 2022 semester must be available through April 29, 2022.
