Thank you for your interest in becoming a peer tutor for Tribe TutorZone. The mission of the Tribe TutorZone is to contribute to student retention and academic achievement through the coordinating services of tutors. All tutors must be knowledgeable in their content field and will be trained to assist students with the development of independent learning skills. The TTZ has been open now for two years and has completed over 2,000 individual appointments with a 98% satisfaction rate from students. We are a resource that is both respected and recommended by faculty and students alike.
Tribe TutorZone is located on the first floor of Swem, in front of the Writing Resources Center. All tutor sessions will be conducted one-on-one and will be scheduled online under the supervision of Tribe TutorZone. Students choose tutors based on the availability and course information you provide in your application. To ensure your academic work will not be compromised by your tutoring work, you will control what hours you are available and will be able to set limits on the number of hours you work. You will have no less than 48 hours advance notice for a scheduled appointment.
Tutors will be paid $7.25 per hour for tutoring, which is the university set student minimum wage. A higher rate will be paid for group sessions.
