There is a new initiative started by Willamette University (WU), Tokyo International University (TIU) and Tokyo International University of America (TIUA) called the Graduate Teaching Institute (GTI). The Global Teaching Fellow (GTF) teaches English language courses in the curriculum of the GTI of Tokyo International University. TIU has campuses in Kawagoe (Saitama) and Tokyo, Japan. These positions will begin with employment in the American Studies Program at Willamette University, where GTFs will earn approximately the same starting salary as the Salem-Keizer School District, but for ten months, starting in June, with benefits, before going to Japan.

TIUA hires Willamette University students as peer academic tutors for American Studies Program (ASP) students in spring, summer and fall semesters. The peer tutors work closely with faculty members to provide a positive and supportive learning environment for students. The peer tutors meet regularly with students outside of class, often in a one-to-one tutoring situation, to help students understand class content and develop better academic English skills.
New tutors are generally recruited during spring semester. At that time, there are information sessions held by current tutors, announcements on Job Cat, and tables in Goudy to announce the opportunities available. Applications will be posted here when openings become available.
