ASPSA tutors are mostly graduate students and working professionals within their field of expertise. Tutors are hired for a wide range of skills and subjects. Tutorial sessions are primarily conducted during the evening hours from 6-10pm Sunday through Thursday. Within those hours, tutorial schedules are arranged according to the tutor’s availability and our level of need. Some tutors work anywhere from 4 hours a week to as many as 20 hours a week.
As a part of each tutorial session, tutors complete feedback forms for each student to document what was discussed, worked on, and the student’s progress within the course. These forms are usually pre-printed with dates, times, and student information on the form. In case you are in need of additional feedback forms, a blank copy can be found here: ASPSA Tutor Feedback Form
