 Student Services

 

Running into trouble with your courses? A peer tutor may be what you need. All tutoring is provided free of charge and we are able to recruit tutors in almost all courses. Drop by the Learning Centre to fill out a Peer Tutor Request Form. For more information contact Jessica Newhook in AS 235c ext. 4313 or by email at studentservices@grenfell.mun.ca. No Appointments are needed.

 
***Requests for Peer Tutoring can only be accepted if no other support services are offered for that course, or if you have a class schedule conflict that prevents you from attending any of the support services being offered.***

 

 

Employment Opportunities 
Peer Tutors are recruited for all courses. The Learning Centre offers Open Tutoring (drop-in), group tutoring, and one-on-one (match) tutoring. Potential tutors have successfully completed the course with a minimum final grade of 75%. Peer tutors are friendly and approachable students who are easy to talk to. The position pays $14.65 per hour for a minimum of 2 hours per week, with the potential for more hours if you are interested. We have a room available for peer tutoring and we work with your schedule to arrange meeting times. If you are interested in a position that offers flexible hours of work and an opportunity to help a fellow student, contact Jessica in AS 235c ext 4313 or by email at studentservices@grenfell.mun.caTo apply: Download the Peer Tutor Application Form
 
***  In order to provide quality tutoring to students in need, and to consider potential tutors who do not have an educational background with Memorial University, students who have not completed the course for which they are applying must consult with  the current professor who is teaching the course for approval in order to verify their knowledge and understanding of course content. ***
 
*** Students must be registered for a minimum of 3 courses in order to be employed as a Peer Tutor. Employment will be terminated if the total number of courses drop below the minimum requirement. ***

 
Responsibilities of Tutors 
Be patient and courteous. A good peer tutor is a friendly, approachable person. 
Be on time. If you cannot make the session, email your tutee in advance or call if it is short notice. 
Record hours worked on the Sign-in Sheet (Start time to end time).
Do NOT answer assignment questions. Review similar questions that deal with the concept in question.
Do not be afraid to say “I don’t know.” You are not expected to know everything. It would be professional to either research the specific question first or direct the student to another source (i.e., the professor, Learning Centre, etc.). 
If a student misses tutoring regularly, notify Jessica and check to see if s/he wishes to select different times or cancel the tutoring sessions.
     
 
As part of the process of selecting candidates to fill the positions of SI Leader and Peer Tutor, the Supplemental Instruction Coordinator may access students’ grades in courses targeted for Supplemental Instruction. If you are identified as a candidate, you may be contacted directly for the position. If you prefer that your grades not be accessed by the SI Coordinator, please contact the SI Coordinator in the Learning Centre or at 639-4313 studentservices@grenfell.mun.ca.
