Peer Tutor Description

Peer tutors must be enthusiastic about being matched up with students in need for one-on-one tutoring in a specific subject area. Once matched up, peer tutors are expected to initiate contact with their tutee and follow through with all scheduled meetings. Tutors are also expected to be available in the library for one hour during evening study hall approximately once every two weeks. There are periodic meetings/training sessions throughout the year as well. Application is open to all rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

Head Peer Tutor Description

Head Peer Tutors are expected to come to meetings with the faculty advisor approximately once every two weeks, lead periodic tutor training sessions, make announcements to the school about meetings and new initiatives in the tutoring program, lead library peer tutoring groups, match up tutors with students in need, and arrive early to school in the fall to help new students with Academic Orientation. Application is open to all rising juniors and seniors. Because being a Head Peer Tutor is a time-consuming and important leadership position at the school, those applying cannot also be Peer Counselors or Proctors.
