FAQs for Tutees

Who can request a tutor?

Students in our target population as well as William C. Parker scholarship recipients are eligible to receive tutoring or any students who requests a tutor.
How much does it cost?

CARES pays for one hour of tutoring per week.

Is it confidential?

FERPA does not allow any student information to be given out. All information is kept confidential. Tutoring sessions are private and one-on-one. Tutors and tutees arrange their own time and place to meet (ideally, on a regular basis).

Who are tutors?

Tutors are students who have done well in their past classes and decided to share their knowledge. Tutors apply to the CARES and are trained by the Learning Specialist.

How are tutored assigned?

We will assign you with a tutor who has done very well in the course for which you request a tutor. If we do not have a tutor for the course which you've requested a tutor, we will try to hire someone. You will be notified in either case.

I applied for a tutor and haven't heard anything yet, what's going on?

We will email you if/when you are assigned a tutor. For some courses we experience a high demand for peer tutors but do not have enough tutors to fill the requests we get. If you haven't heard back yet, please be patient and know that we are working hard to find you a tutor. Be sure to attend your professor/instructor's office hours for help.

What if I no longer need a tutor?

Contact the Learning Specialist to let them know you want to cancel your request. If you been assigned a tutor and have been meeting with him/her, alert your tutor of your decision to cancel your tutoring.

What if I'm a student athlete?

CATS provide tutoring for student athletes.
