Alternate Tutor Hours

CELE offers a few options for students whose regularly scheduled tutoring hours with their site have been derailed due to the Seattle Public School District’s school closures or other conflicts. We encourage tutors to communicate with their school site to make up hours another time first, to get as much experience in the classroom as possible. We have created some options in the case that schedules are tight.

Professional Development Events and Workshops

Students can attend CELE Professional Development events and Workshops to make up hours. HERE is a working list of upcoming events.

Make sure to log your hours if you attend an event.

Online Tutor Modules 

Riverways created a series of modules around topics in education for students to make up hours as a last resort. Tutors are expected to put in valuable thought to each response in order to get approved for alternate tutor hours.

Each module counts for 2 hours. We encourage students to only use these modules at the end of the quarter when they do not have the time to complete their hours another way.

If you have any questions regarding whether you’re eligible to take these modules for replacement hours, please email dreamproject@uw.edu
