ACADEMIC SUPPORT SERVICES
PEER MENTORING SUPPORT
CAMPUS SUPPORTS AND PROGRAMS
Students having difficulty in a course in which ongoing peer tutoring is not available may request tutoring services through Academic Support Services. Academic Support coordinates a one-on-one tutoring program by connecting tutors with tutees.
Appointments can now be scheduled online through Moodle. Be sure to read the names of the courses the tutor is qualified to tutor before scheduling with that tutor.
To schedule an appointment:
NOTE: if you must cancel an appointment, cancel through Moodle so that someone else can take your available spot on the calendar. Also, to schedule multiple tutoring sessions, you must log out and log back in for each session.
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 want to tutor are approved after submitting a Tutor Application to the Director of Program Initiatives within Academic Support Services.
Qualifications and Requirements
Tutoring Application Process
Tutors are paid a minimum wage through the Work Program Office (WPO) for up to 5 hours of tutoring per week above and beyond their 15 hour work week contract. Tutoring does not replace the weekly work agreement; it is an agreement outside of regular work crew hours. To become a tutor, please complete and submit the Tutor Application and either email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off with Judy Huber, Academic Support Services, in Dodge House. Upon approval, you, your course instructor(s) and advisor, and the WPO will be notified and you will be provided with further instruction and information.
To be paid, the WPO will be contacted through Academic Support of approved tutors. Tutors must then stop by the WPO, complete a paper time card, and confirm that your name is on the tutoring list. Tutors will receive a check from the WPO. It can be picked up either at the WPO or it can be sent to your campus mailbox. Payment is issued once a month. Check the WPO for dates. Please note: If tutoring a group of students, tutors are paid per hour, not per tutee.
Online Scheduler through Moodle
Appointments can now be scheduled online through Moodle. Once you are approved for tutoring, you will be enrolled and trained as an administrator within the Academic Tutoring page so that you can set up your own appointment calendar for tutoring.
