After the potential tutor submits the application, the Director of Campus Tutorial Services evaluates it based on the following:
If those areas are satisfactory, the candidate will be asked to meet via WebEx for a virtual interview. Questions typically asked will be, "Why do you want to be a tutor? What do you think a tutor does? How do you define academic success?" For math and accounting applicants, an assessment of content knowledge will be administered following the interview. For writing applicants, assessments of MLA, APA and Chicago-style documentation will be administered, along with an assessment of grammatical rules.
If the interview goes well, the candidate will be invited to participate in a tutoring "Try Out" session. This is a three-week session where individuals interested in tutoring (applicants) first observe senior tutors working with clients and eventually do some volunteer tutoring under the watch of the senior tutor. It is an opportunity for applicant to see if the job is right for them.
If all this is good, the tutor will be offered a contract (examples found below) for the next semester. In the time remaining in the current semester, the tutor will undergo paid training. More information on this process can be found under Learning Assistant Training Process.
If you have questions, call (262)-472-1230 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following contracts provide job descriptions for the various positions, including rate of pay.
