my students as supervisors.  I am new to the position and admittedly 
fell into a great situation, but so far this has helped greatly.  I 
directly supervise 37 student tutors.  I have 5 Master Peer Tutors 
(MPT's) who assist me in numerous ways.  First of all, there is always 
one MPT on duty during our evening hours.  I utilize the MPT's in 
training and observation/evaluation of the tutoring staff, and they are 
able to take on other projects as needed.  This is a great help in 
managing the supervision of a large number of students.  Tutors who 
wish to be MPT's must be CRLA certified, and shown leadership within 
our program.
