FAQ

General Tutoring Questions

What time is tutoring?

Tutoring is from 2:30-5 pm.

Do I have to stay the whole time?

Ideally, yes. With the way that our program is organized, tutors need to arrive on time and leave when dismissed. Leaving early is only permissible under certain circumstances; please contact us with any questions about your specific circumstance.

Do I need to know Spanish to tutor?

No. Knowledge of Spanish is not necessary to tutor, but there are opportunities to practice Spanish if you would like!

Am I automatically a tutor after filling out the registration form?

Almost! After you have completed the registration form, you need to bring in paperwork and come to orientation. 

What if I want to change the day I am registered to tutor?

If you would like to change they day you are tutoring, please let us know either over email or in person. That way, you will be sure to get the most accurate announcements for your tutoring day over email, and we will have an accurate record of your attendance.

Can I come in on a day that I do not usually tutor?

Yes! As long as we have tutoring, you are welcome to come in to tutor on additional days even if it is not the day you normally come or are registered for. However, please keep in mind that you are still expected to come on your designated day unless you fill out an Absentee Report ahead of time.

What should I do if I cannot come in to tutor on my registered day?

Please fill out the Absentee Report. This way, we will mark you as excused and better know about how we should distribute tutors during the day. You may submit this report days in advance, or the same day of tutoring before tutoring begins.


Course Credit and Hours

I need a form signed. Who can sign it and when?

You may bring in the form between 2:30 and 5:30 pm on Monday through Thursday.  If you are tutoring, you may drop it off at the beginning of tutoring and we will have it ready for you at the end. Either Sister Margarita or Sister Marietta can sign forms.

How does my professor get my hours?

Oasis sends out progress reports containing hours at the end of each month. This only works if tutors list their professor(s) in the registration! It is your responsibility to let us know who your professor(s) is and update us on any changes to avoid end of the semester challenges. 

Can you email me my hours?
No. Due to privacy issues, we are unable to email hours out to tutors. However, you can request to know the amount of hours you have worked and we can show you in the office.

I did not list the name of my professor at registration time: What can I do?
Please email us as soon as you become aware of the fact, so that we can edit your registration.

Can I volunteer at Oasis to get credit for multiple courses or professors?
Yes! You are welcome to volunteer at Oasis to fulfill requirements for more than one professor or course a semester. However, you may not count the same hours for more than one professor or course. For example, if you need 10 hours for course A and 10 hours for course B, then you will need a total of 20 hours for your courses- you cannot complete 10 hours and count them for each course. "Double counting" hours may result in an honor code violation at your university. 

 

 Other Ways To Help Out

Other than tutoring, how else can I get involved?

Moreover, various groups, sororities and fraternities come to Oasis to do "Hands-On"  beautification and Oasis Center improvements. Contact us with your proposal of service:   oasistutors@gmail.com
