Hiring for Part-Time Lecturers in the CMS Program

We are currently not acception applications. Please check back to learn more in Spring 2018.

Applicants to the Composition for Multilingual Students (CMS) part-time teaching pool must have an M.A. degree in TESOL or a related field, and have experience teaching academic writing (composition), academic reading and grammar for writing.

SFSU MA TESOL graduate student applicants who will be completing their last semester of course work (Eng 733 and/or Eng 895) during spring or fall semesters may also apply.

All applicants must participate in a screening process that begins with an exam. Applicants who pass the screening exam will be invited for a teaching demo and an interview with the hiring committee, a group of six full-time and part-time faculty. This process takes place annually in April. Successful applicants enter a pool of teachers and are assigned to classes based on seniority and course availability.

Applicants should register for the exam by dropping off or emailing an SF State application form for Temporary Faculty Employment 5 days before the exam to the English Dept. in HUM 488. (The remainder of the application packet is due when applicant is invited to a teaching demo and interview).
