Frequently Asked Questions & Answers
Now that you have completed your Request for Tutoring, the process will begin to match you with a qualified Peer Tutor. Every effort is made to complete this process within 7 days. After 5 business days, it is recommended that you check in with Amanda Williams at email@example.com or 913.288.7218 to see what progress is being made to find you a tutor.
No. Peer Tutors are paid by the Tutoring Services program.
Unfortunately there are times when a student requests a tutor for a course in which a Peer Tutor can not be hired to tutor. In these instances you are encouraged to work closely with your instructor. You will also be provided with additional referrals to individuals on campus that may be of further assistance.
If you feel uncomfortable for any reason with the tutor that has been assigned to you please contact Amanda Williams, Assistant Director of the Academic Resource Center. Every effort will be made to find a replacement tutor.
This may be possible. First, check with your tutor to see when he/she may be available. Your tutor will then submit your request for additional tutoring and will let you know if and when more tutoring can be provided.
Students often like to show their appreciation for the help they receive from their tutor. The best way to do this is simply to tell him/her how much you appreciate their help. The Tutoring Services program also has a ‘Tutor of the Month’ contest so you are highly encouraged to nominate your tutor. This gives you a chance to share all the great things your tutor has done.
Students can request a tutor up until the last day to withdraw from classes.
