We use what we call discipline specific coordinators (DSC) to support recruitment. These are usually faculty in the areas we tutor. For math and writing, these coordinators have a course release because the programs are so large. For the other programs, like business courses, the sciences, nursing, etc., the coordinators do this as part of their service to the university. In the School for Engineering and the School of Business, staff play this role. Typically, they are in contact with fellow faculty members to obtain recommendations and to encourage students to apply. In some cases, the discipline specific coordinators interview the applicants or we interview them together. The writing (DSC) does all the training of writing assistants, and the math DSC assists with the training of math tutors. I train everyone else.
If you have any questions, let me know.
Cheers,
Jeffrey

Subject: Re: tutor recruitment ideas

I have had success with the faculty referral.  I do go to faculty meetings and present on the achievements of the tutoring program when I make a pitch for more support.  An idea would be to see what students are working in related departments.  For example, some of my tutors are also TAs; others are in student leadership positions; some work in the library.  They have the bandwidth for more hours or the need for more hours, and being a tutor is better than food service to many of them.  I don't have much success right now with our education department, but they would be a good source for student tutors.  Tutoring looks good on a resume if you plan on teaching in the K-12.  I hope this helps.

Good morning!

I’m looking for new tutor recruitment ideas.  Many years ago, each staff member in our department (not many at all!) called hundreds of qualifying students asking them if they’d be interested in a tutoring position.  This took forever!  In addition to calling, we sent out letters.  The problem with that is not many students checked their mail or provided the college with a proper address.  Next, we tried sending an automated call out with a recorded message asking for those interested to call us back.  A few semesters ago, I spoke with our marketing department about doing our auto callouts, and they suggested we start sending a mass text message to all that qualify.  This method has been my favorite, easiest and most effective to use.  Well, I found out today after waiting weeks for the auto text to go out to recruit fall tutors that it can’t be done anymore because the college sends out too many texts to students now, and they don’t want to bombard them with a lot of texts.  I also found out that we can’t auto call out anymore.  Not enough students fill out applications to cover the demand of tutoring sessions.  I ask for teacher recommendations, but I don’t get enough of those or interest from those students to cover the demand of tutoring sessions.  So, for future semesters, I need to try a new method(s) of recruiting.  What do you do to recruit tutors?
