Peer-led Group Tutor Job Overview

Academic group tutors are trained undergraduates who support student learning and development. Group tutors meet weekly with a small group of students (~6) to review key lecture topics, foster critical thinking through peer-to-peer dialogue, and develop students' problem-solving skills and learning strategies.  

Training: All tutors are expected to attend tutor training held at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semester, generally the first Saturday following the first day of classes.
Discipline Meetings: Tutors are expected to attend monthly team meetings. Team meetings give tutors the opportunity to connect with fellow peer tutors to build community, discuss course specific trends, ask questions, discuss group tutoring challenges, and provide guidance other tutors.
Observations: New tutors observe a tutor leader before opening their own group.
Mid-semester meeting: Tutors meet with the Associate Director or Program Manager to review tutee feedback.

Optional training and professional development opportunities:

  • Sheridan Center sponsored professional development workshops 
  • Leadership and mentoring opportunities.

How do tutors give program feedback about their experience?

  • Tutor end of semester questionnaire (Dec/May) is emailed to all tutors allowing them to offer program feedback/experience.
  • Tutors also provide feedback during one-on-one mid-semester meetings or at any time throughout the academic year.
