Have you considered paying tutors for preparation time, while keeping the same hourly rate? We have been trying this approach since January, allowing the most prep time for tutors doing pre-exam large group reviews (2 hrs), and the least prep time (1/2 hr) for those tutoring courses in which they are currently enrolled. Perhaps because of recent major curricular changes, those making the budget decisions were agreeable when this compensation plan was proposed this time...I keep having to relearn that timing is everything!!

I am relatively new to this listserv, and I apologize ahead of time
if this is a question that has already been discussed.  I am a new
tutor coordinator, and I would like to get the students who act as
peer tutors a better rate of pay.  Right now, they are paid as
work-studies or student employees, and make minimum (the same as
other work-study students who answer phones in offices or work the
circulation desk at the library).  Some of these tutors run groups
with 3 or 4 students.  I'd like to know if anyone else has faced this
dilemma, and what justification you used to get your student tutors a
better hourly rate, and what the outcome was.

Thanks for any help you can offer!
