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:

http://www.uvm.edu/hrs/skills/manuals/personalinfo.pdf

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

Happy Halloween!

Tutors,

I hope this email finds you well on this Friday afternoon. This weekend is a deadline for payroll submission, so make sure that all of your hours are submitted in PeopleSoft, and you have all of your visits recorded in TutorTrac.

Here are some courses that still need tutors:
NFS 143, PHYS 051, CHEM 121, PHIL 013, CS 121, EC 160, HDFS 005

If you have been to one of the sexual harassment trainings this week, make sure you submit that in PeopleSoft. If you haven’t, you should consider going next week:

Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013
Time: 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (EST5EDT)
Location: Davis Center 403 (Williams Family Room)

Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013
Time: 10:30 am to 11:30 am (EST5EDT)
Location: Davis Center 403 (Williams Family Room)

These are required. If you would like to stay in with the Learning Co-op next semester, you need to complete it. There should be more sessions scheduled for November, and I’ll announce them when I hear about them.

For those of you who might be doing a little early celebrating for Halloween: have fun, be smart, and stay safe.

Thanks,
Keith

October 18

Tutors,

The Student Employment Office has announced the new sexual harassment training procedure. Attending one of the sessions listed below is required for all student employees at UVM. All employees must attend a sexual harassment training session by the end of the semester, or positions will be terminated. The only exception to this would be having a certificate of completion for the now retired online sexual harassment training module. If you believe this applies to you, it would be best to check with me and confirm. You must have started working before 10/01/12.

I believe there will be more sessions scheduled later this semester, and I will pass those along as soon as I get them. Let me know if there are any questions on this. This is paid time, so be sure to submit an hour in PeopleSoft, and send me an email when you attend.

Tutor Requests: CS 121, CHEM 121, EC 160, POLS 150, PHIL 013
As usual, let me know if you can work with any of these courses.

Thanks,
Keith
