Frequently asked questions about working in the QR Center:

What is the difference between a QR tutor and a QR Associate (QRA)?

  • Tutors work one-on-one with students, usually by appointment, in a variety of QR courses they have taken
  • QRAs work with a faculty member in one specific course to help students. QRAs can hold office hours, conduct review sessions, attend labs, and much more

What is the time commitment like for students who work in the QR Center?

  • Most students who work in the QR Center are both a tutor and QRA -- see Q1 for more information about the difference between these positions
  • QR tutors work 1.5 hour shifts, and most tutors have one shift per week
  • QRAs work approximately 40 hours per semester (~2-3 hours per week) in the course they are assigned to. Some QR employees are a QRA in more than one course, or more than one section, and work more hours than that 

Who should I list as a reference on my application? Do I need to ask for their permission?

  • You should list a Dickinson College faculty or staff member who can speak to your quantitative skills
  • Yes, you should ask the reference person if it is OK to list their name

When will I know if I was selected as a QR staff member? 

  • Applications are collected in March for the following academic year. We will begin reviewing application in early April, conduct interviews throughout April, and decisions will be made by early May.
