Angie,

I ask my peer tutors to make up worksheets, exercises, and flash cards for future students in the subject(s) they tend to tutor.  They also have online training modules which they complete during their "down time" on duty after they've completed their face-to-face training.  The online training includes sections on FERPA, disability support services, and learning styles (to name a few).

Subject: tutor down time

Hi, All!

I am new to my position and would like to know how other peer-tutoring programs deal with tutor down time.  Besides the usual office related tasks
- classroom visits, textbook library upkeep, advertisements, office clean up -what does your program ask of its tutors when they have a set schedule and no students scheduled during a time frame?  I need to keep my tutors busy; however, I do not have a ton of time to supervise every task.

Your suggestions and ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
