Tutors,

For everyone: Sunday at midnight is the usual deadline for payroll submissions. Get your things together. This is an important deadline, as it’s the last one which will provide a paycheck while you’re still around campus. Especially if you won’t be around Burlington, but generally for everyone, take special care in making sure to get all of your hours in with no issues. If you do any work next week, and you don’t have direct deposit, you’ll need to make arrangements to get your check.

For tutors returning in the fall: you should make sure to communicate to professors shortly after final grades are in about faculty recommendations for the fall. It’s a lot easier for instructors to talk about you immediately after the class finishes, as opposed to after a long summer. Professors forget things too, so make it easy on them and send that link to them in May instead of September.

Remember, we are all done tutoring after Wednesday, May 1st. Tutoring will continue as usual through Wednesday, but we will not do any more tutoring during finals. That includes weekends and reading days.

Good luck on those early finals!

Many thanks,
Keith

Tutors,

I hope everyone is enjoying the snow in the middle of April. With the weather outside, it’s hard to believe that the semester will be over in a few short weeks. Speaking of the end of the semester, if anyone’s availability needs to change for any reason, let me know. For Co-op tutors, we can cancel or modify availability; for Campus-wide tutors, we can modify and eliminate the frequency with which we distribute your contact information. Sooner is always better than later!

Officially, our LAST day of tutoring will be Wednesday, May 1st. Subject area tutors CANNOT submit any time worked after the last day of classes. Keep this in mind, and help students to plan accordingly.

We still have pending tutor requests for the semester. If you can help with any of these courses, let me know:
GERM 052, NR 140, NFS 033, MLRS 255, ARTH 146, CHEM 131, ASCI 110, STAT 231, EC 135, CDAE 102, FREN 280, BIOL 196, PRNU 196

Sunday is another deadline for payroll submissions. Be sure to have TutorTrac and PeopleSoft submissions up to date. Let me know if you have any issues. Enjoy your weekend!

Thanks,
Keith
