Peer Tutors in the ATTIC enjoy a flexible schedule, targeted professional development, and a means to make extra money while helping their fellow students. Peer tutors can choose to tutor one course, or as many as five. Ideally, they will have taken the course they intend to tutor at Lafayette and have earned a ‘B’ or better. We hire students who have been awarded Federal Work Study as part of their financial aid package, as well as any other student who is eligible to work in the United States.

New and returning Peer Tutors must complete an application (linked below) to provide us information regarding their availability and course competencies.

New tutors should also seek a recommendation from a professor in the primary area that they intend to tutor. A request may be sent to the professor as part of the Tutor Application

Peer Tutor Application (New and Returning Tutors)

Tutor Orientation

Each presentation contains (almost) everything that you need to know to tutor for the ATTIC. All Peer Tutors, new and returning, will  find these presentations useful at the start of a new semester or after a hiatus from tutoring.

Tutor Training Schedule

TutorLingo

The ATTIC has partnered with TutorLingo to provide on-demand tutor training video workshops. To access the workshops, simply click the link, create a user profile, and begin viewing the resources. You will have the opportunity to receive compensation for any of the on-demand workshops that you complete. Simply save your certificate of completion and send to attic@lafayette.edu. We will then review the amount of time that was spent completing the training and adjust your hours on your timesheet.

Student Payroll

If you are a new tutor to Lafayette and/or have never been paid by any other office on campus, you will need to do the following:

  • Students must complete the I-9 and W-4 forms at the Controller’s Office, Cashier’s window on the 2nd floor of Markle Hall (between the hours of 9-12 noon and 1-5:00pm) in order to be employed and to receive his/her paycheck.  Failure to do so will result in the inability to work.  In order to complete your I-9 form, you must provide two forms of identification:
  • A photo ID (driver’s license or Lafayette ID card) and an original birth certificate or an original social security card

OR

  • An original passport will suffice for BOTH forms of identification

FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS:

  • Must also provide an I-20
  • Contact the International Student Advisor, Janine Block, in Room 153 at the Farinon College Center with any questions.

YOU WILL NOT BECOME AN ACTIVE TUTOR UNTIL YOU COMPLETE YOUR FORMS!
