Apprenticeships at Ugly Duckling Presse

Ugly Duckling Presse is seeking to fill two part-time paid apprenticeships to begin March 2019. Working closely with the UDP Collective, apprentices will undertake important and varied work while learning how a small press operates from every angle and helping to shepherd UDP titles through the editorial, production, and publicity process.

Apprentices play an essential role in running a small press on the day-to-day: from packaging and mailing books, preparing promotional materials, and website maintenance, to executing publicity initiatives and providing production assistance. However, apprentices’ tasks are not limited to in-house administration: they also contribute essential design and editorial work for a range of projects, and work with a high degree of creative and professional flexibility on self-guided projects. Ideal candidates will be exceptionally detail-oriented, organized, and able to self-direct in accordance with time sensitive schedules.

Apprentices must be communicative and open to constructive feedback, passionate about the arts and poetry in particular, and comfortable working in a fast-paced environment while juggling diverse responsibilities. We especially welcome applications from people of color, with disabilities, and of the LGBTQ community.

Apprentices commit to two days per week in the UDP studio, as well as assisting at occasional events, book fairs, and our open-house volunteer days. Apprenticeships are for 15 hours per week at $15/hour.

The yearlong term begins in March 2019. Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume to Sarah Lawson at office@uglyducklingpresse.org by
February 11, 2019. Please indicate that you are applying for the March 2019 Apprenticeship in the subject line.

Summer SAT Class Tutor at Legal Outreach

From Legal Outreach, an opportunity that might appeal to students, especially those in Math Education. Follow the link below for further information including salary.

Summer SAT Class Tutor Job Description:

Legal Outreach is on the lookout for ten talented, knowledgeable SAT tutors who want to be part of a transformative experience that empowers youth from underserved populations. In past years, our Summer SAT course has shown an average score increase of 307 points, with some students scoring over 500 points higher on their final exam. As you know, results like that make all the difference in the world when it comes time to apply to college.

We [Legal Outreach] will be hiring five Math/Science and five English/Reading tutors for an intensive summer session designed to prepare high school juniors for entrance into top 50 colleges and universities. Despite the “tutor” moniker, these instructors will be working with classrooms, not individuals. Each tutor will deliver a five-week curriculum of SAT material to a class of 10-12 students. Tutors will work in Math – Reading/Writing teams to co-teach a classroom. For example, the Reading/Writing tutor may teach in the morning while the Math tutor lesson plans and helps manage the classroom. Tutors will also observe separate workshops taught by test prep professionals to the same students, taking care to complement the lessons when planning their own. They will work from a developed curriculum while expanding exercises for their own students as needed. Orientation and training will be provided prior to start of the course, and tutors will work closely with permanent Legal Outreach staff who oversee the program.

This is the perfect position for college students, alumni, and graduate students who excelled on the SAT or ACT and are interested in gaining valuable teaching and leadership experience while making a measurable difference in students’ lives over the summer.
