What qualifications do I need to be an individual tutor?
Tutors must have received at least an A- in the course previously, or equivalent AP/credit for specified courses. However, there are some exceptions to this rule! If you have any questions regarding your qualifications, please email us at: Peer.Tutoring.Program@dartmouth.edu.
I applied to be an individual tutor. Why haven't I been matched yet?
Individual tutor requests are reviewed on a rolling basis starting Week 2 of the term. Tutors will be notified of the status of their application via email when they are matched with a tutee.
If you have not received an email from us yet, it's because we are still in the process of reviewing tutor requests and assigning tutors.
Keep in mind that tutor applications do not roll over to the next term. All tutors must reapply every term.
How often do I meet with my tutee and how much do I get paid?
The Peer Tutoring Program allows for one hour of tutoring per week per course for any student assigned an individual tutor.
Individual tutors are compensated at the rate of $15/hour.
Tutors will track their time by using the Kronos Electronic Timecard system. Additional time exceeding the limit of one hour per week, per course, per tutee, should not be logged into Kronos and should be compensated directly by the tutee at the rates listed above.
Why can't I get into Kronos?
We add and remove tutors from Kronos every term. Once your match is made and confirmed, we will add you to Kronos.
If you have been matched and still cannot input your hours, please let us know and we will add you into the system as soon as possible.
All Kronos and employment question must be directed to Peer.Tutoring.Program@dartmouth.edu.
I have trouble getting in touch with my tutee or have concerns regarding my match. What should I do?
You are always welcome to email us at Peer.Tutoring.Program@dartmouth.edu.
Is there an attendance requirement for individual tutoring?
Yes, there is an attendance requirement. Individual Tutoring is made available for students who have demonstrated high need, and as such the Peer Tutoring Program expects tutees to show up for their appointments. However, as long as tutees are accountable for themselves and communicate with tutors if they need to miss a session or if they are running late we can make allowances for this.
I can work with more tutees; can I get more matches?
An individual tutor can be matched with up to three individual tutees per term. If you feel that you'd like to do more tutoring, please apply to be a group tutor. Group tutors may be matched with up to three tutoring groups.
Can I continue working with my tutee next term?
Any individual tutor and tutee that wish to work together must still submit the requisite paperwork for approval and list each other's email addresses in the request and application forms each term. Please do not assume that you will be able to work together.
Where can I find resources to be a more prepared tutor?
Please look through the Academic Skills Center website for learning tips and strategies that you can share with your tutees.
Upon hiring, all tutors will also be invitied to access the Peer Tutoring Program Canvas page which contains a wealth of resources. Please check your Junk folder if you have not received a Canvas invitation or email Peer.Tutoring.Program@dartmouth.edu for access.
