PROCEDURES FOR MATCHING A STUDENT WITH A PEER TUTOR AND
ESTABLISHING THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE TWO:
Once the chairman of the NHS tutoring committee receives a NHS Tutor Request
form, he/she will find an appropriate tutor for the student based upon common
availability times and course content. When the match has been made the chairman
will add the names to the Tutoring Googledoc.
The chairman of the NHS tutoring committee will give the tutor a copy of the NHS
Tutoring Request Form for the student he/she will be tutoring. The chairman of the
NHS tutoring committee will also notify the student’s guidance counselor that the
student’s name and the name of his/her tutor has been added to the Tutoring
Googledoc and to let the counselor know that the tutor will be contacting him/her shortly
to set up the first meeting.
The tutor will use the e-mail address or phone number on the NHS Tutor Request
form to contact the student and schedule their first meeting at a mutually agreed upon
time. The first tutoring session will be held in the student’s guidance counselor’s office.
The tutor will coordinate the first session with the student’s guidance counselor to
ensure that he/she is available. At that time the Tutoring Agreement will be discussed
and the counselor will supervise the signing of the Agreement. Copies of the agreement
will be given to the tutor and the student. Once the agreement is signed, the tutor and
the student will schedule regular tutoring sessions.
The tutor will give the Chairman of the Tutoring Committee the original signed
agreement. The Chairman will be responsible for keeping all Tutoring Agreements and
the creation and updating of the Tutoring Google docs listing the student/tutor pairs and
students waiting for a tutor to be assigned. The Tutoring Google docs will be shared with
the Director of Guidance, guidance counselors, students and tutors.
