A. Learning Commons Tutoring Programs at Campbellsville University primary goal is to support the enhancement of student learning in key content areas to assure that every participant feels competent, confident, successful, and secure in his/her pursuit of a college education.
- A grade of A (preferred) should have been attained for the course or discipline area for which a student would like to tutor (a grade of B will be considered).
- Recommendations from faculty for the discipline a student wishes to tutor. Must submit at least two.
- Submission of a completed application, including recommendations to the Director of the Learning Commons is necessary along with a one-on-one interview.
- Tutors should be responsible, personable, patient, and kind; understanding that the knowledge they possess in a subject area can make a tremendous difference to the tutee seeking their help.
- Tutors should have strong interpersonal and communication skills and be able to inter-act with students from a variety of backgrounds and a variety of skill levels.
The benefit to the students receiving assistance is clear; however, tutors receive a tremendous benefit that is often overlooked. Experience as a tutor assists in building a resume and provides great leadership opportunities, in addition to providing financial resources while attending classes. Being a peer tutor is a win-win job!
