Congratulations and welcome! We are delighted that you've accepted a leadership position as a tutor at the University of Saint Mary’s Keleher Learning Commons. Peer tutoring is a core component of student success at USM and we’re so happy to have you as part of the team. While tutoring should never replace faculty assistance, it can make all the difference in a student’s quest for academic excellence. Tutoring is a popular and integral resource. We currently provide opportunities for students to seek assistance in nearly every subject area, and we have YOU to thank for making that possible! A faculty member has recommended you because he/she sees you as someone with the background, communication skills, patience, and solid academic standing to take on this responsibility. Your role is an important one. Please use this handbook as a guide and resource as you not only help students realize their potentials, but also as you realize yours. Again, thank you, and welcome aboard!
