Our Staff is comprised of the best and brightest young minds that Loyola University Chicago has to offer. Upon being selected for our staff, students undergo an extensive training process and are required to continue that training throughout their time with us. We constantly strive to make our tutors the most effective tutors they can be. Moreover, our tutors are tutoring courses that they themselves have achieved an “A” or higher in; in many cases tutoring sections for the same professor they received instruction from. Because our center is certified through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), our peer tutoring staff takes part in several professional development opportunities throughout the year that ensure they are developing and growing as peer tutors.
Four students are selected each term that stand out amongst our highest performing staff and are named “Tutors of the Term”. Here are the fall 2012 “Tutors of the Term” alongside some of the outstanding feedback we have received from their clients.
Can you picture them helping you?
“Ashley is the best tutor I have ever had in my academic career. She tutored me in the fall semester of 2012. She knows exactly what she is talking about. She works the problems out with you and explains them very clearly. If she doesn't know the answer to something, she doesn't try to explain it using incorrect information, she just tells you to ask the teacher. She can handle a group really well. She attends to each student. This tutoring group was extremely efficient and helpful. I wish I could have Ashley as a tutor for every subject!”
"Lewis helped me out on a lot of questions outside of the tutoring time. He is very friendly and encouraging. He even met with me for a couple minutes after each tutoring session. He is great and I wish he could be my tutor for every year. "
“Jill is constantly seeking new ways to help. Never satisfied with the bare minimum, Jill is always looking for new ways to help her clients. Her continued commitment to the CTAE makes her an example for all to emulate. She is a great person with many talents.“
"Chloe is a wonderful and genuinely kind person. Everytime I walk into the tutoring center she has a smile on her face and answers any and all of my questions! She is ALWAYS incredibly helpful and fun to talk to! I believe she should receive this award."
"T.J. was extremely helpful and knowledgeable on the subject. There was never a time that my questions were not answered. I think that he did a great job explaining the course material which made the class easier, especially since I had a very hard professor. Sometimes when I was early he even answered questions on assignments for other courses. I still see him around campus a lot and he always smiles and talks. I feel that I could go back to him and ask questions anytime."
