Payroll Forms and Procedures (Emergency Paper System)

Hello, All–

As long as TutorTrac is down, we will need to keep track of sessions using a paper recording model.  For each session, you will need to complete a Session Record.  At the end of each pay period, you will need to submit a Work Summary Report along with your session records.  The hours listed on the Work Summary Report will need to match the hours you enter in PeopleSoft.  For a more complete summary of the paper recording system, look HERE.

Week One Updates: Meeting Sunday at 7!

Welcome back (officially) tutors!

I hope you all had a wonderfully engaging and intellectually provocative first week of classes.  I have a number of updates for you, so here goes:

1. Our MANDATORY All-Tutor Meeting will be Monday, September 5 from 7:00-8:30 pm in L/L CM 315 (right upstairs from the Learning Co-op).  Can’t wait to see you all there!

2. Before you will be eligible to begin tutoring this semester, you MUST complete the online policy reminder survey.  Please be sure to submit your name and email address on completion so we have a record of your survey submission.  The link to the survey can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&pli=1&formkey=dGJqckxoUGxzMGxxUXNHa0Y5UlhBMlE6MQ#gid=0

3. All other paperwork, forms, etc you will need to fill out to start the semester will be available at the all-tutor meeting.

4. I am still working on the Co-op schedule.  If you are available to tutor our traditionally high-demand courses (math, chemistry, BSAD, bio, statistics, anatomy…) and would like to hold regular hours in the Co-op, you may email me to set up a meeting or come talk to me at the end of our meeting on Monday.

5. I am also looking for tutors willing to lead group tutoring sessions, either in the Co-op or around Campus.  Physics and BSAD tutors, I NEED you!! Please let me know via email or at our meeting if you would be interested in leading groups in these subjects.

6. The Honors College is looking for a tutor in residence to hold group sessions either 6-8 pm or 7-9 pm in University Heights North on Wednesday evenings.  Let me know if you’re interested.

7.  Because of the holiday, the deadline to submit your hours in PeopleSoft this pay period is TONIGHT at midnight.  While none of you should have any hours entered for the Co-op yet, as tutoring doesn’t start until September 12, I don’t know how much this will affect you.  But just a heads up in case you need to enter hours from another campus job.

Whew, I think that’s all for now.  Enjoy your three-day weekend, and I’ll see you all on Monday!

Best,
Rachel

Welcome Back!

Hello, friends!

We are very close now to the beginning of the semester.  I hope you are excited!  As per usual, I have a list of updates and announcements for you all.  Here goes:

1. Our All-Tutor Meeting will take place on Monday, September 5, from 7:00-8:30 pm in L/L CM 315.  This meeting is MANDATORY if you wish to return as a tutor this semester.  Whether you choose to dress to impress is up to you, however.  If you will not be able to make this meeting, please talk to me ASAP.

2. Rather than listen to me review policies you’ve known for years, there is a policy reminder survey available on the blog and by following this link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?pli=1&hl=en_US&formkey=dGJqckxoUGxzMGxxUXNHa0Y5UlhBMlE6MQ#gid=0  You must complete this survey before you are eligible to begin tutoring for the semester.

3. If you delete this email and lose the link to the reminder survey or the location for our meeting, fret not, dear tutors.  All this information and more is available on the tutor blog.  http://blog.uvm.edu/subtutor/

4.  Speaking of the blog, you may notice that I have recently posted a schedule for payroll deadlines and paycheck deliveries.  I will still send reminders to submit your hours as I did last year, but feel free to refer to this schedule at your convenience and to plan any large purchases.

5. The first day of tutoring will be SEPTEMBER 12.  No tutoring appointments may be scheduled prior to this date.

6. If you are paid with work study funds or tutor at least one high-demand course and would like to schedule regular hours in the Learning Co-op for this semester, please be in touch.  I am starting to draft the Co-op schedule now.

7. I am currently looking to hire tutors to lead Drop-In Group Tutoring sessions for the semester in BSAD 60, 61, 65, and 180; CHEM 26, 31, and 141; MATH 009-121; NFS 043; PHYS 11 and 31; PSYC 001; and STAT 51, 11, and 141.  If you are interested or want to learn more about this opportunity, please let me know ASAP.

Enjoy your last week of freedom…See you soon!

Best,
Rachel
