1. Tutors must be enrolled as full-time students at Grinnell College.
2. Students on academic probation may not serve as tutors.
3. As a tutor, you are expected to attend any training sessions scheduled by the Academic Advising Office. You may include time spent in training on your monthly time sheet.
1. No student may tutor without the permission of the Academic Advising Office. You must have a recommendation from a professor in the department for which you will tutor. Hours worked prior to the Academic Advising receiving a professor's recommendation will not be paid.
2. A student wanting a tutor in your recommended course will be given your name, phone number, box number, e-mail address, and advised to contact you to arrange a suitable meeting time. It's the tutee's responsibility to report the name(s) of his/her tutor(s).
3. Plan to work with your tutee about two hours a week. Students should be prompt, ready to work with their books, notes, supplies and any questions they may have. Make sure the appointment time is convenient for both of you; try not to change the time or cancel at the last minute. A regular schedule is less confusing/frustrating for both of you.
4. Tutors may not tutor more than four hours per week without advance permission of Hanna Langley, [langleyh], Academic Advising Counselor. Tutors who submit time sheets reporting over four hours of tutoring per week will be subject to termination and will not be paid for the hours beyond the approved four.
5. Reporting of hours for student tutoring relies on an honor system. If Academic Advising receives evidence of falsified time sheets, both tutor and tutee will be subject to college judicial action, and the tutor will be terminated.
6. It is imperative that you contact Academic Advising if you feel a student is not making satisfactory progress or if problems arise in your tutoring.
7. A time sheet and a tutoring session summary sheet will be sent to you and should be returned by the 25th of every month. Pay is $7.50 per hour and is received from the Treasurer's office. Students are paid on the 10th of every month. You need to fill out a W-4 and I-9 form from the Treasurer's Office before your paycheck will be issued. If you work more than one job in campus, your hours for each job will be combined in one paycheck. Tutors are paid by the hour, not by the number of students tutored at each session.
8. Tutoring session summary sheets will be sent to tutors along with time sheets, and must be submitted each month along with the time sheet. Keep a current log of your tutoring sessions; do not wait until the end of the month to complete the summary sheet.
9. Submit your summary sheet and your time sheet to the Academic Advising Office located in the Joe Rosenfield Center, 3rd Floor Suite each month. The student(s) you are tutoring must sign the time sheet in the column "Log Time in Hours." This helps our office determine whom you are tutoring along with the number of hours per week. Please return your summary and time sheets promptly. Time sheets without tutees' signatures or summary and time sheets over two months old (or received after June 1) will not be honored for payment. Students doing group mentoring need not secure tutees' signatures, but do need to send a list of participating students to Academic Advising.
10. Students must be enrolled in the class for which they request tutoring. (The exceptions are in conversational and written English.)
11. If you find that you do not have sufficient time to tutor, please notify Denise Bennett at x3702 so that we do not continue to give out your name.
12. All tutoring for math and science courses is arranged by the Science Learning Center, the Math Lab or the Psychology Department.
Good luck! If you have questions or problems, please call x3702
