Tutors

TUTOR MISSION STATEMENT
The academic tutors of the University of Miami Athletic Department are a core component of the Academic Services Center. It is our contention that well trained and responsible tutors can provide valuable support to student-athletes, and that it is this support that will ultimately enable our student-athletes to succeed at their college coursework.

DO YOU NEED A TUTOR?
Request one by completing the Tutor Request Form. Someone will contact you within 48 hours to discuss arranging a meeting. Be sure to check your phone calls and emails! If you do not hear from someone within 48 hours, please contact Kelly Pierce kpierce@miami.edu immediately.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BECOMING A TUTOR?
Our tutorial staff is made up of approximately 50 tutors from the undergraduate and graduate student body as well as professionals from the community. We are always looking for tutors who exhibit a desire to help others succeed academically, who possess a strong understanding of the subjects in which they plan to tutor, and who demonstrate an ability to communicate well with many different types of personalities. We do require that our tutors maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and we ask for at least a semester commitment if hired.

If you are interested in tutoring in the Athletic Department, please complete the Tutor Application and forward a copy of your unofficial transcript (available on MyUM) to Michael Imeokparia at m.imeokparia@miami.edu.

REPORTING
After each tutorial session, tutors are required to complete a Tutor Session Report, providing as much feedback as possible about the student's effort, performance and progress.

If a student-athlete did not show up to a session, or cancelled later than 10pm the night before, please complete a No Show Report.

PROGRAM FEEDBACK
