Academic tutors are responsible for providing individual and small group tutoring for student-athletes. In addition to clarifying course content, tutors help student-athletes integrate effective learning and study strategies and help reinforce course content through guided practice. They must have a demonstrated knowledge of their subject and be sensitive to others' learning difficulties and experiences.
Tutors will keep a record of students who attend sessions and make note of topics covered during sessions and any issues that arise. Tutors will maintain student confidentiality and professionalism.
Other duties could include monitoring evening study table sessions, logging and/or tracking student study table attendance, and assisting with other office responsibilities as needed.
