Tutoring sites must:
employ America Reads tutors only as reading tutors. Tutors may not be asked to perform non-tutoring tasks such as grading papers or monitoring playground activity.
provide school-specific training, and ongoing support for each student tutor in the program. WMU will provide limited, introductory-type training for tutors.
provide direct supervision for each student tutor in the program. Supervisor will be a regular staff member of the school with the knowledge and authority to provide appropriate work assignment and assessment.
provide regular feedback on each tutor’s job performance.
assign tutoring activities that are structured, well planned and effective.
provide appropriate space to work and tutoring materials.
collect time sheets for hours the tutors work. Timesheets must be signed by the student and the student’s supervisor and turned in to WMU Student Financial Aid by specified deadline.
maintain a copy of tutor’s bi-weekly timesheets.
When you employ a tutor you must regularly process and submit time sheets for hours worked. It is not appropriate to permit a student’s hours to accumulate without pay.
Students who are paid using work-study must work to earn wages. Please do not use work-study to compensate students for hours of study, or other non-work-related activities. To do so would be a violation of federal, state and University guidelines.
