Student-Athlete Tutoring Program

4. You will attend both a mandatory training session at the beginning and receive mid-semester training tips and strategies each semester. You must attend the training session at the start of the semester before you can begin tutoring.
To tutor with Duke Athletics, we look for candidates that demonstrate a high level of integrity as well as a high level of competency in the subject area. Students will contact you directly to make an appointment for tutoring and you should ask students how much time they will need with you and what class/material they need help with. Do not be afraid to tell them how much time you have available and what you are comfortable tutoring. Sharing expectations is an initial step that is crucial in this process. All tutoring appointments must take place in the Krzyzewski Center. Usually tutor sessions are scheduled for one hour.
Tutors must turn in a tutor timesheet, downloaded from this site or turned in electronically via email each week that you work with a student. The timesheet must be submitted to Julie Vandiver in office 228 Krzyzewski Center by 5:00 pm EVERY WEDNESDAY. Tutors WILL NOT be paid for timesheets older than 30 days. Please indicate on your timesheet if a student fails to attend an appointment or cancels the appointment late.
The current hourly rate for tutors is $14.00 for graduate students and $12.00 for undergraduate students. Tutors will receive time-and-a-half pay rate for tutoring groups of three or more students. In order to be paid you must complete the proper paper work addressed in tutor training.
Maintaining academic integrity is of the upmost importance. Tutors are persons of integrity, who can distinguish right from wrong, and are fully committed to following NCAA rules and the Duke Community Standard. It goes without saying that a tutor should not do work for student-athletes or provide any level of help that causes the tutor discomfort. In addition, the tutor should report to Julie Vandiver any student who asks for, or seems to expect, excessive or inappropriate assistance.
