ALTEC is continually looking for enthusiastic instructors to teach our evening non-credit language classes, held on the CU Boulder main campus. Our students are adult learners, mostly comprised of CU Boulder faculty, staff, graduate students, alumni, retirees, and community members. As the classes are for enrichment only with no tests, our adult learners are highly motivated to learn the language for use in their profession, social life, and travels. The languages we offer are driven by student interest, so we are excited to host many different languages, such as Spanish, Swedish, and Swahili, to name a few.
If you have experience teaching language and are interested in teaching with ALTEC in the future, please email your résumé to firstname.lastname@example.org with the language(s) you are able to teach in the subject line. We will reach out to you via email when a teaching opportunity for that language becomes available.

Student employees typically work 5-15 hours per week between 8:15am-8pm M-Th and 8:15am-4pm F, depending on scheduling needs.
