How can I become a tutor?
You can submit a “Become a Tutor” Application, a Google Form found at this link: dartgo.org/tutorapplication. Remember, tutor applications don't roll over from one term to the next. All tutors must reapply every term.
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 [email protected]outh.edu.
I applied to be a tutor. Why haven’t I been matched yet?
If you haven’t received an email from us yet, it’s because we haven’t received any requests from students for tutors in that course. If you want to increase your chances of being matched, we encourage you to apply to be a tutor in a different course in which you have done well. Feel free to email us for our most current list of courses that are experiencing a high tutor demand.
Keep in mind that tutor applications do not roll over to the next term. All tutors must reapply every term.
How much do tutors get paid?
Tutors get paid $12/hr and $15/hr for Engineering courses.
Why can’t I get into Kronos?
We add and remove people 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 [email protected].
Do I really need to use different job codes for different tutees?
Yes! Please use the job code given to you in your match email corresponding to your tutee to avoid any confusion.
Why do each of my tutees have a different job code associated with them?
There are four primary job codes for tutors - tutors of ENGS courses, tutors of athletes, tutors of engineering for athletes, and tutors of regular students for non-ENGS courses. If you have more than one tutee, it is likely you have a combination of these codes to log hours through. The Tutor Clearinghouse needs to track these parameters for differences in pay rates (in cases of ENGS courses) and to continue receiving funding for athlete students through the NCAA. Please cooperate! In the table below are the different job codes. Don’t hesitate to contact [email protected] if you are confused about any of your job codes.
Do I need to submit an application to become a tutor every term?
Yes! Tutors must apply for the position every term. Your application does NOT carry over from term-to-term.
Can I continue to tutor the same tutee next term?
Yes, but any students that wish to continue working together in an immediately-following term must still submit the requisite paperwork for approval. See specific match. Assumptions about your ability to continue to work together should not be considered an automatic approval (on your part) to do so.
I have trouble getting in touch with my tutee, or have concerns regarding the match. What should I do?
Please contact the Tutor Clearinghouse with any of your concerns that you may have regarding the match (i.e. conflicting schedules, inappropriate match due to differences in learning or teaching styles, etc).
I can work with more tutees, can I get more matches?
If you feel that you are able to take on more tutees, feel free to send us an email! We are always in need of more tutors.
Why am I not on the Canvas page?
We regularly add tutors to the Canvas page. If you do not have access to it, please let us know and we will add you as soon as possible.
Where can I find resources to be a more prepared tutor?
There are a suite of resources you have access to on the Canvas page.
I don’t think I can tutor anymore, is there a way to get taken off the list?
That’s completely fine! Tutors apply term by term so if you’d like to stop tutoring this term, please email us and let us know so that we may rematch your tutees and remove you from the matching list.
