Student-Athlete Tutoring Program

For Tutors:
Application Procedure:

1.    Submit application to tutor@duaa.duke.edu or 213 Krzyzewski Center
2.    We will contact you to set up an interview if we feel you are someone we can use.
a.    Please remember you must be a junior or older and received at least an A- in the course you want to tutor.
3.    You will attend both a large mandatory training session and a small mandatory training session before you can meet with students.
4.    You are required to attend at least 2 more training sessions throughout the semester and failure to do so will result in dismissal.

Students will contact you directly to make an appointment for tutoring. Ask a student 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. Outlining expectations is an initial step that is crucial in this process. All tutoring appointments must take place in the Krzyzewski Center.

For each week that you work with a student, tutors must turn in a tutor timesheet, downloaded from this site or turned in electronically via email. The form must be submitted to Shayna Heinrich in office 213 in the Krzyzewski Center, tutor@duaa.duke.edu 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 complete appointments or is consistently unprepared.

The current hourly rate for tutors is $13.00 for graduate students and $10.00 for undergraduates. 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 and tax forms.

Before tutoring sessions begin, tutors must make it clear to all student athletes that there should be an outline or agenda of what will be accomplished for each tutoring session. Effective sessions should take no more than two hours.

Maintenance of academic integrity is of paramount importance in any educational endeavor and is the fundamental principle that guides the tutoring program in the Duke Department of Athletics. 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, they should report to Shayna Heinrich any student who asks for, or seems to expect, excessive or inappropriate assistance.
