Put tutoring on Resume?

Postby Strange » Mon Oct 31, 2011 12:01 am

I work for a prep company that tutors kids in underprivileged communities, mostly minorities. It's SAT prep. Should I put this in my resume? It's part-time work that I do alongside my full-time job, or maybe I put it in the "other" section?

If its paid, goes under experience, if its volunteer, goes under other.

Should I put it at the top above my current FT job (paralegal)? I started it at a later date than I did with my FT job, but I feel like my FT job should be first? Sorry for these stupid questions, I didn't take resumes 101 in college

Technically yes, the tutoring should go first based on the dates. But, I would put the FT first and see how it looks.

It probably will make zero different which comes first. If they are in the same section, you need to put tutoring first if you started it later (and when you list it on the app itself make sure that you put it in correct chronological order). If you're really concerned, you could make two separate sections, like "Professional Experience" and "Additional Experience," and then put paralegal at the top of professional and tutoring at the top of additional (I put paid and unpaid things in "additional").
