I have been watching this thread all day, and I finally must comment on it.  Cannot resist any longer.  I just cannot understand why anyone would feel it was a good idea to set a limit on the number of semesters during which one may serve as a tutor.  A good tutor is continually honing the skills needed to improve as a tutor.  Why would one want to deprive one's school of tutors whose skills those at the school worked to improve?  Are tutors considered to be adjunct faculty and the school wants to keep the percentage of adjuncts below a certain level?

Me too. I am trying to get enough responses to get the limit revoked.

Josue-  I was curious if you know the reason why your school limits the
time the tutors are there.

Durham Technical CC does not have a limit, either.  We almost
exclusively employ professional tutors; most are adjunct instructors.

Students, please register early and pay early for Fall Semester 2007
credit classes to avoid longer lines and slower processing times during
General and Late Registration.  We expect longer lines with the first
use of a new student registration system.  Registration for Fall
Semester begins July 9.  See an advisor in June or July.

Hello,

        I have a question. The school I currently work at has a limit on
the number of semesters a professional tutor can work. Do you also have
limitations like this?


Thank you,
