While there are some exceptions, at most universities (especially larger ones), English professors are hired to teach within a specific field, as seen in the professor hired as an expert on Victorian literature, British Drama or 20th-21st-century American Fiction. In addition to teaching courses in their area of specialization, qualified professors are expected to supervise graduate students (who typically share their research interest), participate in the governance of their department and university (such as serving on committees), and to publish articles and books in recognized journals in their field, such as the PMLA.


In college, grades DO matter. Study and take the challenging courses that will make you a well-rounded content empowered graduate. The practicums are all geared to make sure that teaching is your career choice. Make the most of every moment; try to tutor if your school has a free tutoring lab; it will make you practice your teaching skills. Most of all, teach from your heart and not from the book. Students will not remember what you said or did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.
Anyone who completes their formative education in the U.S. is required to study English (also referred to as Literature, Language Arts, or ELA – English Language Arts). With a few exceptions, students are required to take one or more English courses per year from first grade through their first year of college. For this reason, most Americans have come in contact with a multitude of English teachers by the time they graduate, as it is one of the primary core subjects taught at every grade level. Because of this, job prospects are steady for English teachers.

I started out simply attending SI for BIOS 110 as a freshman and loved it so much that I used it for as many courses as I could afterward!  These also included my general Chemistry courses, CHEM 121 and CHEM 124.  I started working at the Student Success Center as a tutor and SI instructor last summer.  After almost a year of working, I have led SI sessions for BIOS 101, 110, and 120, and I have held study sessions for CHEM 124.  Having gone through these courses myself and attended SI for my own benefit, I strongly encourage all to take advantage of the Student Success Center's services.
