Tutors should be assigned only academic tasks, not clerical or administrative tasks (except on rare occasion.)
Tutors should always work under the direction and supervision of a teacher.
Tutors may be assigned to work with more than one teacher.
Tutors may have lunch with children or spend time on the playground with children, but may not be the person assigned to supervise the children in those settings. Tutors will be paid if they have lunch with teachers to discuss work. Tutors may otherwise take lunch or other breaks, but will not be paid for them.
We do not require tutors to work on UVA holidays, even if the public schools are open. However, tutors may work on those days if they desire. In all cases, they are required to keep their teacher informed of whether or not they will be working at specific times. This is especially true at the long breaks. For example, UVA’s Fall Semester ends on Dec. 16 and the school does not re-open until Jan 15. Tutors may choose not to work, or to work expanded hours (up to 40 hours per week), during this time, but they must inform their teachers of their plans and have permission from the school to work expanded hours. Similarly, UVA’s Spring Break differs from that of the public schools. Tutors are not required to work but are required to keep the school informed of their plans.
