Peer Tutors assist fellow undergraduates in UK math, science, and engineering courses through Tau Beta Pi's Peer Tutoring Program in the Elbert E. Ray eStudio and/or online, based on University policy as the semester progresses. Peer Tutors help tutees fully understand concepts, complete assignments, and study for exams. Peer Tutors are responsible for greeting tutees and making them feel welcome and included, providing guidance in course content, and helping tutees hone study skills and strategies.
Peer Tutors guide tutees to deeper understandings of course material and are never expected to give answers or replace course instructors.
Peer Tutors receive extensive training in preparation for being effective peer tutors, so no prior tutoring experience is needed. Initial training is planned for late August.
Because the Peer Tutor position is a professional position, it includes responsibilities beyond working regular shifts, including professional development sessions, and regular online communication.
PLEASE NOTE: Only applications including a resume and transcript will be reviewed.
