Hun Summer School internships give rising college seniors and recent graduates an opportunity to gain valuable teaching skills by working with experienced teachers in their chosen subject. This pairing is done early enough to allow for communication and planning between the teacher and intern before the program begins.
Interns are a vital part of teaching classes, leading discussions with the students, class planning, and homework help. They work closely with their teacher daily. In addition, interns will work in a supervisory role in the dormitory. This includes helping during afternoon activities, attending meals, supervising study hall, chaperoning field trips, and monitoring weekend activities.
Applicants must be at least in their third year of college and should demonstrate a genuine interest in being a part of a community of learners, a willingness to work hard, and a solid academic record. The Summer School Director will interview selected candidates during the winter or spring preceding the summer session.
