November 15

Tutors,

Many of you have already let me know about your spring plans. I just want to say one more time that it would be incredibly useful for us in the Co-op if you could let me know if you will be either abroad in the spring, graduating in December, or planning to no longer be a tutor. If we have already talked about this, thank you.

Also, if you have Co-op hours and you plan on leaving early or returning late from Thanksgiving Break, let me know so we can make any necessary changes to the schedule.

Remember, tutoring ends on the same day that classes end: Wednesday, December 4th. The Learning Co-op will NOT pay you for any hours you spend tutoring during the exam period, so please plan accordingly with your students.

I have finally received information about future sexual harassment trainings. If you have not already attended, you should plan on going to one of the times listed below. Please, email me when you have attended the training, so we can record that as part of your file here in the Learning Co-op. This is paid time, so submit one hour into PeopleSoft on the date which you attended.

Tutors,

I hope this email finds everyone doing well.

As we approach the holiday season, be sure to pay attention to your schedule. Try to avoid scheduling sessions with students when you will be gone for the holidays or around break. If you have Co-op hours, and you know you might be leaving early or coming back late from Thanksgiving Break, let me know as soon as you can.

Tutoring ends on the last day of classes: Wednesday, December 4. Unless you have explicit permission from me, no hours will be approved for after that date. Please keep this in mind.

This weekend is a payroll deadline. Make sure that your hours are in PeopleSoft and that your visit information is in TutorTrac.

I have not heard anything about future sexual harassment training sessions. As soon as I do, I’ll let you all know. If you haven’t attended one yet, just keep an eye out for them, and attend one when you can.

Thanks,
Keith

Pick up your paychecks!

Tutors,

A belated happy Halloween to all of you. I hope you’re all enjoying the festivities, however you might be celebrating.

Payroll Services has sent out emails to several of you about picking up paychecks. If you got one of these emails, you should go and pick up those checks as soon as you can. All student employees can pick those up at Payroll Services, 237 Waterman. If you need any more information, check out the website: http://www.uvm.edu/~cntrllrs/?Page=payroll.html

I am in agreement with Payroll Services; it is significantly better for everyone when you sign up for direct deposit. It cuts down on work for the staff responsible for doing payroll, it’s easier on you, and it saves paper. It is also really easy for you to set up. Follow the directions here:

As hard to believe as it may be, the end of the semester is within sight. Are you graduating? Are you going abroad in the spring? Are you considering other employment?  For whatever reason, if you’re no longer going to work as a tutor, it’s always useful for us in the Learning Co-op to hear about it in advance. You’re all hard to replace, but impossible to replace if we don’t know you’re leaving.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks,
Keith
