LIBRARY PEER TUTOR GUIDELINES

Request Form for a Shift

Attendance Policy:
You will receive a warning for the first time you do not show up to your shift. The second time you are absent, you will be fired.
This policy is applicable to alternates. Alternates must attend the shift that they have agreed to cover. Note: If you fail to alert BOTH Esther and CTLR and your alternate is late, then it counts as your own failure.

Alternate Policy:
It is your duty to secure an alternate if you are not able to make your shift. You must let Luke know that you have secured an alternate tutor by email (eguidos@middlebury.edu)
and email CTLR (ctlr@middlebury.edu) to let the student worker know as well. Please let your alternates know 24 hours in advance of when you will need them to cover for you.
If you are unable to secure an alternate, email Esther at least 18 hours in advance, and he will help find one for you. Please do not contact him an hour before your shift to ask for an alternate, he will not be able to help

Warning Policy:

Warnings will be issued for failure to follow any of these policies. If any one tutor accrues 3 warnings, he or she will be fired. The policies which we have had the most trouble with in the past are pink slips and notification of Head Library Tutor and CTLR for an alternate.

CTLR student worker/Library tutor relationship:
Please introduce yourself to the CTLR student worker and let him or her know that you are the library tutor for your designated shift.

Library Tutor Signs:
The CTLR worker has yellow library tutor signs that you should pick up when you arrive. Place it near you so that students can see it. Esther will be passing by CTLR every now and again to check that you are doing this. If you step out of CTLR for a moment (please no longer than 5 minutes), turn the sheet over so that the tutee knows that there is a tutor available that will be back shortly.

Documenting Tutees:

All library tutors should fill out a form to document how many students they have met with for the night as a way to track any trends and to identify when a double shift may be needed. Please leave the filled out sheet on the designated shelf in CTLR at the completion of your shift.
If there are 3 or more students waiting to see a tutor, you may call a tutor from the alternate list (to be posted in CTLR) to help you. If you are working the early shift, tell students to wait until 9:30, when the tutor for the late shift will arrive.
NEW POLICY: you must fill out the pink slip and turn it in on the night you work; log sheets without pink slips will not be paid.
