The Tutor must be able to work evenings and weekends and be enthusiastic about helping other students. The tutor must not have earned a grade below a B in any course for which they are ask to provide instructional assistance (tutor).

The Tutor is to help the tutee identify and address his or her academic challenges, establish an immediate rapport with the tutee, and assist the tutee by using varying exercises and methods in order to determine how best to help the tutee improve his or her mastery of the material.

The Tutor will maintain a timesheet to log the time the Tutor spends tutoring another student; the time sheet shall document the date, start time and end time of each session and the name of the students tutored. The hourly rate for all Tutors is $25.00 per hour. The Tutor's total amount of time shall not exceed twenty (20) hours per month.
