Final post of the semester


Classes are over, tutoring is over, and finals are upon us. I wish everyone the very best of luck on their final exams. I hope everyone enjoys the last days of the semester. Here are the all the end-of-semester matters we need to consider.

  • We will have an all tutor meeting on Sunday, January 13th, from 5:00 to 7:00 in L/L 315. We’ll go over some housekeeping briefly, procedure and policy reminders mostly. We also have the good fortune of having a really great presenter coming in to talk to us. If it’s possible, all tutors should be there. We’ll get some pizzas, too, so take advantage of the free food. I understand it’s the day a lot of you might be returning to Burlington/campus, so if you can’t make it, send me an email.
  • First, everyone should attend to updating their own course information. When your final grades come back to you, for any course with a B+ or higher with which you wouldn’t mind working, you should send the link to the recommendation form to your professor. This, of course, isn’t required, but cuts down work for everyone once the semester starts. If you have any questions about what courses you have on file or whether or not a particular course might be needed, send me an email.
  • Our first day of tutoring in the spring is Tuesday, January 22nd. I am in the process of working on our Co-op schedule for the spring. If you haven’t already contacted me about it, and you are interested in having regular, weekly hours here in the Co-op, you should let me know about it. Remember, we’re open 10:00 am to 9:00 pm on Monday through Thursday, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Friday, and 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on Sunday. Sessions start and end on the hour (you can’t start at 3:30, for example). The schedule will be filled first come, first served. However, please don’t send in times you might need to change right away.
  • I am also looking to find some tutors who might be interested in leading some group tutoring sessions. These sessions typically meet once per week, somewhere on campus. The sections which I am looking to fill are MATH 009-121; BSAD 060; BSAD 061; EC 011; EC 012; PHYS 012; PSYC 001; NFS 043; and CHEM 026. Contact me if you have any questions and might be interested.
  • If you have Federal Work Study, and have not selected to use it for your time at the Co-op this semester, but would like to do so in the spring, you need to let me know so that I can hire you in the FWS system.
  • Lastly, about half of our current tutors will be graduating next May. I will be busy this coming spring recruiting new tutors. If you have friends, classmates, coworkers, teammates, roommates, suitemates, or acquaintances who might make good tutors, you should encourage them to apply. Feel free to encourage them to contact me directly if they have any questions.

Finally, have a great break! Enjoy the time off! Enjoy the holidays!

Many thanks,
