Our staffing structure is going through some drastic changes due to the
budget crisis and new laws regarding short term classified employees.
Starting July 1st, we will have three levels of tutors in our center:
Peer Tutors (student workers) who will make $7.25 per hour; three
Learning Facilitators (on-going part time classified staff,
"professional tutors") who will make $14.37 per hour; and three Learning
Assistants (also on-going part time classified staff) who will make
$15.63 per hour.  (The last two do not include the 3.35% raise all
classified employees will be getting on July 1st.)  This will be our
first year with this staff set up.  It will be a very trying year
because I will be hiring all new peer tutors.  Because of the changes, I
am probably going to lose all of the current tutors, except for the six
special ones mentioned above.  Any of the current tutors who are not
students at our college will not be able to return, which is really too
bad because we have many who are outstanding.  Their loss will really be
felt by our students.

Could anyone share what you are paying peer vs. professional tutors?
For us, pay is based solely on tutor certification and tested knowledge
level, not on degrees.

At Lake Land College, our Tutoring Center uses two groups
of
tutors:  student tutors and degree tutors.  Degree tutors
are permanent
part-time employees, and typically have at least a
bachelor's
degree.  Several degree tutors have Master's degrees and
also work as
adjunct instructors.  Some of our tutors have been with us
for many years.
We probably use a higher percentage of degree tutors than
many
schools.  Most of our English, math, and science tutors are degree
tutors.  We usually have to use student tutors for our computer courses;
degreed technology professionals don't need to settle for what we can
pay, even in today's economy.
