- Maintain a professional working relationship with students at all times. Avoid conflicts of interest (e.g., tutoring someone with whom you have a personal relationship)
- Ensure the confidentiality of students at all times. Should you need to discuss a specific student with a Learning Cooperative professional staff member, do so discreetly.
- Commit to attending at least some of the in-service training opportunities offered throughout the semester. Notify the Tutor Program Manager of your intention to attend.
- Return all messages (phone, e-mail, AIM) from students and from the Tutor Program Manager as promptly as possible.
- Set up appointments with students at times and places that are convenient for the student and for you.
- Notify students at least twenty-four hours in advance, if an appointment must be rescheduled. Contact other tutors to provide a substitute, if necessary.
- Communicate clearly and honestly with students when describing their preparedness, effort, and needed activities to meet the academic requirements of their course.
- Seek advice or suggestions from the Tutor Program Manager, if needed, in order to better help a student.
- Accurately describe your own academic competence when deciding what courses to tutor.
- Keep accurate and complete records of all tutoring activities, and closely adhere to deadlines for submitting lognotes & timesheets.
