In order to fill out the human resources employee application you will need forms of ID and be able to fill out tax information. You will need to provide two of the following three documents:1.) A Valid Drivers License 2.)Social Security Card3.)Birth CertificateOr you can bring in a valid passport and that will provide them with all the information required.
By filling out an application, am I guaranteed the opportunity to tutor? Not necessarily. We do our best to provide each qualified tutor the opportunity to tutor. However, the availability of tutors and tutees and the demand for tutors in a given subject can prevent this from happening. The more courses that you are willing to tutor and the more times that you are available will increase the likelihood that a match can be made.
Is tutoring a part time job? Most tutors consider tutoring an extra-curricular activity, or resume builder, and not a part time job. You will not become a wealthy college student by tutoring.
Do I need work study or financial aid to become a peer tutor? No. The tutoring program is not a work study job. It is independent from work study or financial aid.
How many hours will I work? The number of hours you would like to tutor is entirely up to you and the demands of your schedule. Typical tutors will tutor two hours a week.
How many students will I work with? Most tutors are placed in small group tutoring sessions and work with two to five students at a time. We like to encourage small groups as much as possible since they provide the tutee with a ready made study group.
All tutors are required to attend one "Introduction to Tutoring" workshop during the Fall/Spring semester. Additionally, to foster appropriate development of one's skills, Tutors are also encouraged to attend at least one of the Tutor Training workshops held during the semester. The schedule for these workshops are available in the ASC, on our Tutoring Services webpage, and via the Peer Tutor Coordinator.All tutoring sessions are arranged by the Academic Support Services Office and the Peer Tutor Coordinator.
After filling out the application you will be sent a schedule of tutor trainings. You are required to attend one tutor training session before you will be placed with a group.
