We offer tutoring over the summer here at GGC. To handle the drop in the number of students, tutors are limited to working 10 hours a week instead of the usual 19 (for professionals) or 25 (for peer tutors). We also offer tutoring online through Smarthinking, which comes out of our department’s budget.

I run the peer tutoring program at Jacksonville University and we are currently struggling with how to handle summer tutoring. Over the years the University has expected us to staff tutors over the summer for the courses offered. This year, the major difference is that of the courses being offered throughout the summer, about half of them are online courses and only about half are campus based. Even when the majority of courses were campus based last summer, we still had very few students coming in for tutoring. In a time of trying to be budget-conscious but also student-focused, I’m trying to find effective and efficient ways to offer summer tutoring.
Has anyone here come across a similar problem? How do you handle summer tutoring at your institution (if you offer it at all)?
Thank you in advance for your help!
