Eligibility: All tutors must be students in good standing with the SAS Honors Program or Rutgers Honors College and have completed at least one semester at Rutgers.
Training: Each tutor must attend a training session prior to meeting with any tutees.
Tutoring: This is a volunteer position. Each tutor must meet all tutoring obligations, including training, meetings, and every scheduled appointment with tutees.
Responsibility to Inform: If a tutor is unable to meet a scheduled tutoring appointment, the tutor will appropriately inform his/her assigned Tutor Coordinator via email and call the tutee and LRC Coordinator. If a tutor fails to meet these responsibilities, his/her record will be reviewed for possible dismissal from the One-on-One Tutoring Program.
If a tutor knows in advance that they will be unavailable to take new appointments for a specific period of time, it is their responsibility to inform their assigned Tutor Coordinator at least TWO WEEKS in advance and request to be taken off the tutoring schedule for that time period. This notice prevents appointments from being scheduled when the tutor is unavailable.
Tutoring Assignment: Each tutor will be provided with instructions on how to use the RU Scheduler to check their individual tutoring appointments.
Staff Meetings: There will be 1-2 Tutoring Program staff meetings each semester. Tutors should attend at least one meeting per semester. The meeting date for Fall 2017 is September 22, and the time will be announced through SAKAI.
Correspondence: The Tutoring Program has a SAKAI site that all tutors can access. Most communication about meetings, updates, and requests will come as SAKAI announcements. Tutors must read all messages and respond promptly to inquiries.
Schedule:You will be contacted in mid-September to confirm your courses and schedule for the Fall 2017 semester.
If you have any questions regarding Tutoring Program policies or the application, please e-mail Ms. Dorene Pardun (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Application deadline: September 15, 2017
