For Current Tutors
Being a Tutor
Your selection as a tutor is indicative of the confidence that
faculty members and the staff of the Learning Resource Center have
in your ability to support the university's effort to provide
academic support to all Butler undergraduate students.
Tutoring is one of the most effective interventions for students
who are struggling with grasping and understanding difficult
concepts presented in class. In addition to the satisfaction
that comes from supporting others as they work to achieve their
academic goals, you will learn a great deal as you review material
and help tutees learn how to be successful.
For questions or concerns that may arise during the tutoring
experience, please contact the Learning Resource Center.
The Tutor Handbook provides specific detail about
the tutoring process, tutoring activities, and other resources
which will enable you to be an effective peer tutor. For
additional resources, please contact any member of the Learning
Resource Center staff.
Peer Tutor Progress Report
Peer tutors are asked to complete a Peer Tutor Progress Report after each session
with a tutee. This will enable the Learning Resource Center
to determine if continuing the tutoring process is
appropriate. If you have concerns regarding a tutee that are
not appropriate to include on the report, please contact the
Resource Center directly.
Students are paid on a bi-weekly basis, every other Friday.
Students submit time worked online through my.butler.edu. When receiving payment, students
have two options - they can pick up a check at Student Accounts
(located on the first floor of Jordan Hall) or they can receive
direct deposit payments. Direct deposit is always recommended for
student employees, as it is much easier for both the University and
the student. In order to do this, students must submit a voided
check and direct deposit form, which can be found at this link: http://www.butler.edu/human-resources/forms/.
It is the expectation of the Learning Resource Center that
tutors will maintain a solid GPA and will follow through on their
responsibilities as a tutor. If a tutor is unable to balance
their academic load with their tutoring responsibilities, the LRC
will work with the tutor to ensure that priority is given to the
tutor's individual academics.
