THE TUTORS OATH

  1. I understand that I must meet my Tutee(s) as scheduled.  I will meet my Tutee and do only review work with him/her.  (I will not do his/her homework.)
     
  2. I understand that I must try to notify my Tutee in advance or call the Peer Tutor Coordinator to leave a message for my tutee if I cannot attend the tutoring session.  My tutee will inform me if he/she can not attend a scheduled tutoring session. (This is done by calling, texting or emailing each other or by leaving a message with the Peer Tutor Coordinator.)
     
  3. If I miss 2 tutoring sessions without calling in advance, my services will be terminated. If I am still interested in tutoring, I must see the Peer Tutor Coordinator to reapply.
     
  4. If I reapply and again miss 2 tutoring sessions without canceling in advance, my tutoring services will be terminated for the semester.  I may ask for special consideration if I feel I have a valid reason for missing.
     
  5. I understand that I must wait 15 minutes for my tutee to show up. (He/she will also wait 15 minutes for me.)
     
  6. I understand I must come prepared to the session to review course syllabus, lecture notes, textbooks, and handouts. I am to help the tutee find the answers, NOT GIVE HIM/HER THE ANSWERS.

     

  7. I understand that I may inform an instructor of a tutee’s progress, or speak with an instructor concerning the tutee.
     
  8. I understand that I will not discuss a tutee’s progress with anyone other than the tutee’s instructor or the Peer Tutor Coordinator.
     
  9. If I experience any problems with the tutoring program, I may consult with the Peer Tutor Coordinator.
     
  10. Above all else, I will do my best to help my tutee meet his/her academic objectives.
