As a tutor, you are responsible for knowing and adhering to the information listed below and stated on your signed Peer Tutor Contract.
The Head Tutor will email you to assign you a tutee based on your availability. Please respond promptly to the Head Tutor to let them know whether or not you can take on a particular tutee.
Your email inbox should be checked every day, as this is how tutoring requests will be submitted to you.
If a tutee does not respond to your efforts to contact her, let your Head Tutor know as soon as possible.
You should keep the Honor Code in mind when working with your tutees and help them with general concepts and strategies for doing better work. You are there to support them, not to "fix" their homework. If for any reason you feel uneasy about what is expected of you as a tutor, please do not hesitate to contact your Head Tutor.
If a tutee needs to cancel her appointment with you, she should inform you of the cancellation a minimum of 2 hours before the appointment. You are paid for 15 minutes of the appointment time if a tutee cancels less than 2 hours before the appointment.
If a tutee makes a habit of canceling at the last minute, you have the right to discontinue tutoring her. Please notify your Head Tutor if you are no longer able or willing to tutor a tutee.
If a tutee is more than 15 minutes late, you
are not expected to continue waiting. You are paid for the 15
minutes you waited.
When you are filling out your time sheet, you may include prep time up to half the length of the appointment.
