Yes, we went through name tags and neck badges but it was too difficult for students to identify tutors. We talked about a t-shirt or polo-shirt, but the tutors said they would forget to wash it, need to have at least 2, and if they wanted to dress nicely the shirt wouldn't work. So, we went with vests. Our school colors are gold and black so we went with gold as it is easy to see. They leave the vest here and wash it as needed.

Subject: Tutoring Apparel
I am wondering if anyone has suggestions on apparel that tutors could wear to help them stand out in a busy drop-in room.
We require all tutors to wear nametags, but when the room is busy a nametag can be hard to spot. We've been playing around with the idea of a brightly colored safety vest or sash.
If anyone has any ideas they would be willing to share that would be greatly appreciated.
