Job Description

Tutors receive three levels of training. Principal duties include tutoring KPU students to help them become more effective learners. Tutors achieve this by asking questions about the student's understanding of the subject area, making suggestions about how to study or a method of approaching a problem, modelling appropriate learning strategies, and by referring the student to learning resources or other services within or outside the university. Peer Tutors are not expected to teach coursework or to be substitutes for teachers. Peer tutors are current KPU students helping other students to learn.

Bilingual peer tutors are also available.

Remuneration

Tutors are paid the current minimum wage and are expected to work between 4–10 hours per week.
