How do students and Peer Tutors meet?
Peer Tutors and students can meet either online or in person. It is important that the Peer Tutor and student discuss this as well as payment BEFORE meeting.
How to do Peer Tutoring Online
Zoom and Microsoft Teams are two University-supported platforms suitable for tutoring.
The Peer Tutor and student should discuss the most appropriate platform for their tutoring sessions based on the learning requirements and access of each at the time of booking.
How to do Peer Tutoring Face to Face
With the return to learning on campus, Peer Tutors have the option of tutoring face to face on campus. If you would prefer to meet your Peer Tutor or student on campus, please discuss this with your Peer Tutor or student before committing to the tutoring session. We recommend that all face to face Peer Tutoring sessions be held in a quiet public place, such as the UTS Library.
Please note that tutoring face to face is always at the discretion of the Peer Tutor.
How can payment be made?
Payment can be made by electronic funds transfer during the tutoring session. We recommend that tutors request the student present a screen shot of electronic payment during the tutoring session. This allows the tutor to see that the payment has been made while the student is in their tutoring session. Peer Tutors and students should discuss payment, including payment method, at the time of booking the first session.
