Simon Fraser University's popular tutorial system serves its students well. Undergraduate students find that their tutorials help them to learn the materials at a deeper level than simply attending lectures.
And graduate students who teach in the tutorials find that the teaching experience prepares them for their future careers and extends their knowledge of their field.
Teaching assistant positions (TA-ships) are offered on a competitive basis each semester to qualified graduate students. A full TA-ship includes set hours per semester for responsibilities that may include class time, course preparation, grading laboratory notebooks or tutorial papers for exams and/or other duties as assigned or required by the Department Chair or the Course Supervisor. See TSSU Collective Agreement for more information.
Full-time international students with a valid study permit do not require a work permit to be a teaching assistant on campus. (Citizenship & Immigration Canada: Working on Campus). A Social Insurance Number will be required.
