AiCASF Peer Tutor Program - Peer Tutors
Location: San Francisco, CA | Posted under On-Campus on July 5, 2012
Students who would like to serve on campus as a tutor are a special breed of student.
If you came to me to be hired as a peer tutor, I would ask you about the following:
- 1)What's your GPA? Students who are peer tutors are the best and the brightest on campus. Students applying for the position of Peer Tutor must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and must maintain this GPA throughout their employment.
- 2) Which program are you in? Students who are hired are often chosen based on need since we average one peer tutor per program. If our Culinary peer tutor is graduating, then another Culinary peer tutor must be hired in replacement.
- 3) Can you tutor in English and/or math? Yes, the peer tutoring program needs students to tutor within their program, however, most of the requests for tutoring is in the realm of helping in English or math.
- 4) Which quarter are you in? Peer tutors are selected for their breadth of in-classroom and on-the-job experience. Students who can tutor in multiple topics (not just one computer program) are hired for their ability to get work. For this reason, peer tutors who are in their 4th and higher quarters are most desirable.
- 5) Can you work independently, schedule with tutees, and then submit paperwork every two weeks without fail? We set you up with a peer tutor training, but much of the peer tutoring can be you sitting with a tutee. The best peer tutor candidates are students who have tutored unofficially with their friends and class mates. As an official peer tutor, you'd have a community of peer tutors behind you, the support of the Academic Achievement Coordinator, and then you'd get paid for the work you do.
If you've gotten this far and you'd still like to be considered as a peer tutor for Summer 2012, then you'll need to accept the following:
- You must be available for an all-day peer tutor training (9am to 4pm) on Saturday, July 21st. Coffee, snacks, and lunch will be provided.
- We pay San Francisco minimum wage which is $10.24/hour.
- You will be required to submit documentation every two weeks.
