Job Description

The ELLWC employs Miami undergraduate students (sophomores and above) from all majors to serve as paid writing consultants. Consultants’ primary responsibility is to help multilingual (ELL) writers become more confident users of academic English and effective writers across genres and disciplines. 

This job provides unique learning opportunities that lead you to personal success.

  • Hold in-person one-on-one or small group consulting sessions and/or asynchronous written online appointments.
