Tutor Qualifications and Responsibilities

Tutors are undergraduate and graduate students who have acquired specific knowledge and skills in writing, subject matter, and/or learning strategies and are able to communicate this knowledge and these strategies to peers in an effective, appealing manner. We typically do not hire freshmen, but some exceptions may apply (inquire if interested).

  • Tutors must maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA and have obtained a minimum of an A- in the classes they want to tutor (some exceptions may apply).
    • Tutors for the Writing Center have proven competence in writing and grammar and display confidence, passion, and sensitivity for helping writers grow.
    • Tutors for specific courses have taken and excelled in courses (or course equivalents) for which they are tutoring and have demonstrated the ability to effectively communicate what they have learned.
    • Academic coaches have proven solid academic performance, effective learning strategies, knowledgeable responses to various learning styles, and a strong resolve to help others succeed.
  • Tutors will be responsible for conducting individual and/or group tutoring sessions.
  • Tutors are required to attend scheduled training sessions.
  • Tutors are required to document tutoring activities and be in communication with course instructors and CAE staff regarding tutoring content. Attention to detail and punctuality is of the utmost importance for those who work with us as tutors.
