Hi Leonard,

We tutor math and science here, and for the most part courses like calculus and general chemistry are reasonably similar from school to school.  For this reason, I'm comfortable accepting an A or A- grade from another institution as evidence that the tutor can handle the course here.  We provide our tutors with course syllabi and textbooks so they know what's coming up from week to week, and if they do discover a topic that will be new to them, they will work with one of the other tutors to master the material.  This might work less well in other disciplines.

Best,
Michele

Subject: Questions Regarding Freshman and Transfer Tutors

What policy do you all have regarding freshmen and transfer tutors?  Specifically, I am interested in finding out how you handle students who have the qualifications to tutor, but have not taken the course in which they would like to tutor at the current institution.

Thanks for your feedback.
