Description

The Penn State DuBois Center for Undergraduate Excellence is seeking part-time Peer Tutors in all subject areas at all levels (i.e., math, writing, languages, sciences). Applicants must be current Penn State DuBois students, must have earned an "A" or “A-“in the course for which they are applying to tutor, and must have a minimum 3.0 overall GPA. Finally, applicants must obtain a letter of recommendation from an instructor in the area in which they want to tutor. Tutors should be excellent students who are knowledgeable in their subject areas and capable of effectively conveying that knowledge to others. The Peer Tutor works with students who are in need of assistance in a course or courses in which the tutor has been successful. Tutors must exemplify civil, courteous, and professional behavior at all times. Peer Tutors are expected to be prompt for appointments, be knowledgeable about electronic scheduling, handle problems tactfully and effectively, and keep information regarding all students confidential. The Peer Tutor holds weekly drop-in hours (as assigned), makes appointments with students, keeps careful records of tutoring sessions and hours, meets with the Learning Center Coordinator as needed, and maintains confidentiality of tutoring contacts and all academic records. Tutoring sessions generally take place in the CUE, Monday through Friday during the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., by appointment and/or drop-in, depending on the course and number of students seeking help.
