Any FLC student who has achieved a 2.75 GPA overall and who is at least a sophomore can qualify to be a PAA tutor. After attending a 6.5 hour tutor training, the student is eligible to tutor any class in which she/he has earned an A or a B. PAA holds tutor training at the beginning of each semester.
A PAA tutor’s starting salary is $9.00 per hour with increases each semester, and the hours are flexible. PAA tutors are eligible to become nationally certified through the College Reading and Learning Association if they also complete an additional five hours of training and 25 hours of tutoring. PAA tutors report that the experience looks great on their resumes and that their grades also improve as a result of tutoring others.
Pick up a tutor application at PAA, in the Reed Library on the 3rd floor, or email Katie Sparks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
