I have a large peer tutoring staff. I was hoping to do cords for ones who had distinguished themselves, but the President's office asked us not to b/c there has been an unchecked proliferation of cords. We do a certificate for every graduating tutor (even those who tutored before and have left our service). We usually put up Dollar-Store graduation decorations on a bulletin board with names of the graduates on it. This year, though, I did a bulletin board with photos of the graduating tutors (photos the tutors submitted). It was really nice, and the tutors were really appreciative.

Hi Charles,

My tutoring group is quite small (6-8 tutors), but our office gives them an alumni mug, I give them a Barnes & Noble gift card, and this past spring I took them to dinner at a local restaurant.  I had three graduate this past spring, but I offered dinner to all the tutors.  In the past I have brought in pizza to commemorate the end of the semester, but I got tired of pizza.  I have also provided breakfast foods on occasion as a change.  I can do this since I have a relatively small group and it doesn't break my budget.  Any recognition is appreciated.

Subject: Graduation

I'm wondering if anyone does anything special for their tutors that are graduating. Do you provide a cord, medal, or pin to wear at graduation? I have a few students that have been tutoring in the center longer than I've been coordinator. They have fared through several personnel changes and continued to do an awesome job without complaint. My tutors, indeed, are a phenomenal bunch and were so helpful in my transition. I really want to do something special for them.

Please let me know your thoughts.
Best,
Charles
