Answer

We welcome applications to join our tutoring group.  To get started, stop by the Learning Commons.  Subject tutors work with students to help them understand subject matter that is problematic for the students. Tutors are chosen/recommended by the faculty in each department. They are scheduled by the Learning Commons staff to work in departmental locations, Pelletier Library or by individual appointment. This position is open only to those with sophomore or higher status. Students must have earned a B+ or better in any class they would like to tutor and have an overall 3.3 GPA. If contacted by the Learning Commons, students will need to complete a more in-depth application and provide at least two references. Because the number of tutors needed varies by subject and by term, this is not guaranteed employment. Students should not ask faculty for recommendations until they are contacted by the Learning Commons.
