MENTORING SUPPORT & TOOLS
Academic Support administers and manages most peer tutoring support across campus. Currently enrolled students having difficulty in any course where tutoring is not available can access a qualified peer tutor for free by attending scheduled one-on-one tutoring sessions or attending Study Nights with drop-in group tutor sessions.
For students who prefer working with a tutor one-on-one, we offer peer tutoring support where students can schedule appointments based on days and times made available by the tutor. All tutors are required to post their schedules online through Moodle.
Scheduling a One-On-One Appointment through Moodle
Canceling a Tutor Appointment
If an appointment must be cancelled, please be sure to cancel through the Moodle account so that the time slot is available for someone else and the tutor is informed of the cancellation.
Before Attending a Tutor Session
Becoming a Tutor
Approved tutors are students who have demonstrated a mastery of content and information in two or more courses and feel comfortable teaching and explaining course material to their peers. Students who desire to tutor must submit a Tutor Program Application to the Assistant Director of Program Initiatives within Academic Support. Students can also read and download the Tutoring Services Description and Application.

Qualifications and Requirements
Tutors are paid a minimum wage for no more than 5 hours of tutoring per week above and beyond the 15 hour work week contract. Tutoring does not replace the weekly work agreement; it is an agreement outside of regular work crew hours.
Upon notification, the WPO will set up online timecards for tutors that have been approved through Academic Support. A timecard will be generated each week for students to submit hours on CampusWeb. Timecards will be approved/rejected through Academic Support based on Moodle Scheduler appointments and Study Nights schedules. Tutors must contact the WPO each week if there are weeks that they do not tutor, so that the WPO can administratively delete empty timecards. All submitted and approved timecards will run through the Accounting office monthly and students will receive a paycheck in their campus mailbox. Visit the WPO's website for the student payroll schedule. Note: When tutoring a group of students, tutors are paid per hour, not per tutee, and should tutor no more than 2.5 hours during one session.
Tutors are responsible for posting tutoring hours no later than the Monday following the week of tutoring.
Tutor Application Process
To become a tutor, all tutors must complete a Tutoring Services Application and submit it to Judy Huber, Assistant Director of Program Initiatives, 3rd floor Morse Science Hall.
Workshops and Training
All students who have been approved to provide tutoring services are required to attend workshop and training sessions as requested. Advance notification will be sent advertising dates, times, and locations.
