Peer-Led-Team-Learning Leader Employment Application
Peer-led-team-learning (PLTL)/tutoring is offered as a support service for difficult academic courses—those that have a high rate of D or F grades and withdrawals—and provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peerfacilitated sessions. Subject specific tutoring takes a hybrid approach that combines elements of traditional tutoring with elements of PLTL. The program will feature course attendance and faculty collaboration on the part of the tutor but will also offer students in those courses one-on-one, peer-led assistance.
Tutoring sessions begin the third week of each term. PLTL/tutoring is offered as a preventative measure that helps students establish study skills and keep their grades and performance in check.
A tutor/PLTL leader has many responsibilities. As a tutor/PLTL leader, you will be expected to attend at least one class session per week for your assigned tutoring-supported course, hold regular PLTL hours, document accurate records, participate in monthly staff meetings, and maintain communication with faculty and the director. All tutors are required to attend a one-day training at the beginning of each semester. Anyone who cannot attend training will not be considered for the position.
PLTL leaders/tutors will be allowed no more than ten (10) working hours per week and, on most occasions, will be paid for one (1) hour of course attendance and nine (9) hours of session time. PLTL leaders/tutors will be compensated $12.50 per hour.
PLTL leaders/tutors play an integral role in students’ academic success, and we are excited that you are considering sharing your knowledge, skills, and talents with your fellow University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff students!
