Tutors - (Currently Closed to Applicants)
Tutors take the one-credit, semester-long seminar CAS 312, “Supportive Practices in Peer Education,” and can subsequently offer individual and small group tutoring in appropriate subjects through the College Tutoring Program housed in the Genesee Hall Tutoring Zone. There is no strict GPA requirement to apply; however, preference will be given to applicants who performed well in the courses that they propose to tutor in. We particularly encourage students who have struggled academically but ultimately succeeded in their coursework to apply.
The pay rate is $10.65/hour for undergraduate Tutors and $14/hour for graduate student Tutors. Applicants must be available during the Fall 2018 semester either a) from 10:25 to 11:15 AM or b) from 2 to 2:50 PM on Fridays to participate in the CAS 312 seminar. Any scheduling changes that prohibit prospective Tutors from attending the CAS 312 seminar will result in any offer of employment being rescinded. All applicants should also demonstrate passion for the subject matter and want to help others both to learn the subject well and become better learners.
