1. How can I get a tutor?



Please fill out the Tutor Request Application.

Once you submit the form, your professor will be contacted for recommendations about possible tutors. This process usually takes a week, although it may take longer depending on the amount of time it takes your professor and the potential tutors to respond. When a tutor has been found you will be alerted by e-mail and given the tutor’s e-mail address so that you may contact that person to set up a tutoring schedule.


2. How can a tutor help me?

Tutors provide a wide range of services. They can explain difficult concepts or listen and provide feedback as you explain your understanding of such concepts from class or readings. They can serve as a study-partner in reviewing material from class. They may also share their own effective strategies for note-making, studying, writing essays, and preparing for class.


3. How do I become a tutor?

Please fill out the Tutor Application.

If a student requests help in your area of expertise you may be selected to tutor that student. When this happens you will be alerted by e-mail and given the student’s e-mail address so that you may contact them to set up a tutoring schedule.


4. What if I need more tutoring time than 2 hours per week?

Under special circumstances we allow for such arrangements. If you feel that your circumstances justify the need for more tutoring contact academicsupport@willamette.edu.


5. How do I enter my hours for tutoring?

After setting up your Workday account, use the Time Worklet (clock icon) to log your tutoring hours. Timesheets are to be submitted at the end of each pay period (as indicated on the Workday Time Sheet Schedule). Workday Video Tutorials and Time Tracking instructions for Workday can be found on the HR Workday Resources page.
