K-12 English Tutors Needed (Okemos)
A local ESL teacher, Ms. Missy Sainz, reached out because there are many international families in Okemos who would like their children (potentially ranging in ages from kindergarten through 12th grade) to have individual English tutoring to help them develop their language proficiency as much as possible in the limited time they will be living in the area. Usually families would like their children to be tutored from 1-2 hours per week. Tutoring would likely start in May, and depending on the family’s needs and wishes, this could continue throughout the summer (June-August). Tutors are usually paid approximately $30/hour.
Tutoring sessions usually happen at the Okemos Public Library, and tutors should have a good understanding of phonics and emergent literacy skills. Tutoring sessions often focus on basic vocabulary, answering questions, and other speaking skills. Ms. Sainz is looking for a workbook to help support planning and structuring tutoring sessions. If you would be interested in tutoring emergent bilingual students in Okemos, please contact Ms. Missy Sainz at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Note from your career advisor: tutoring opportunities vetted by a school or offered in a public place (like a library) are fine. Tutoring privately in a stranger’s home is never advised.
Detroit Public Schools Community District is offering immediate employment to any (music/art/exercise health science) major who is interested in teaching in the district upon completion of a teacher certification program. Interested candidates should complete this brief interest survey. The district will then be in touch with candidates to guide them through the teacher certification process and discuss the next steps for employment.

During your internship year, you will gain graduate-level course credit. By the time you finish the teacher preparation program, you will have completed 12 graduate credits!
Although you are receiving graduate credits during your internship, you are NOT enrolled in a master’s degree program. Instead, a certain number of these credits can be applied to various master’s programs in Education at MSU. How many credits? Depends on the program – check them out here.
It is also not appropriate to list that your 12 credits are in a particular graduate program. Since you’re not currently in a program, you cannot communicate that they are from a particular program (i.e., teaching and curriculum).
An example of how to put your education on your resume:
Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI
Teacher Certification May 20XX
– Completed 12 graduate-level credits
Bachelor of Arts, Elementary Education May 20XX
– Teaching Major: Integrated Science
– Teaching Minor: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)
It is important to remember that you are indicating the undergraduate degree that you’ve received AND that you are completing (or have completed) the teacher certification program at MSU. These should be listed as two separate items under education.
A question I’ve been getting a lot lately is when do I know when to share my professional documents (i.e., resume, cover letter, references, portfolio) with potential employers? Frustratingly, the best answer is…it depends! Here are some highlights to help you navigate.
