Tutor Information

Please Note: Beginning Fall 2014, all tutors will be required to take an online Sexual Harassment Tutorial and print out a certification of completion prior to tutoring. This is a university mandate for all employees including student workers. The online tutorial can be accessed at: http://training.newmedialearning.com/pwh/millersville/. Once you have completed your online training, please print out a copy for the Tutoring Center and submit with your application to become a tutor. Please keep a copy for your records. Tutors will not be permitted to tutor without proof of completion and certification and there will be no exceptions. 

Please Note: Beginning Fall 2014, all new tutors/those who have never tutored for the MU Tutoring Center will be expected to review procedures, responsibilities, payroll reporting and given an opportunity to ask questions. Tutors who have tutored 25 or more hours for the MU Tutoring Center will be required to attend Level 1 Tutor Training. Tutors are paid for the training.
