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
This presentation contains (almost) everything that you need to know to begin tutoring for the ATTIC. Returning Peer Tutors may also find this presentation useful if they are returning to Peer Tutoring at the start of a new semester or after a hiatus from tutoring.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then review the amount of time that was spent completing the training and adjust your hours on your timesheet.
