Tutoring for an Honors Experience
UHP students can earn an Honors Experience for both paid and unpaid tutoring or teaching assistant positions. These opportunities serve to provide learning and enhancement of academic curricula for undergraduates or school-age children.
Justice Page Middle School TutoringThe University Honors Program is proud to partner with Justice Page Middle School (Minneapolis) to bring UHP students in for tutoring opportunities via the Twin Cities School Engagement Program. This is a fantastic opportunity to serve the community surrounding the University, as the Twin Cities has one of the largest opportunity/achievement gaps in the country. Minneapolis Public Schools hopes to continue the program's success with the positive impact that UHP students have made in the past.
Tutors are typically asked to donate about 5 hours per week of their time to travel and work in classrooms with middle school students. Applications for fall 2020 tutoring are now open! Past tutors must reapply each semester, and only 1 Honors Experience can be earned via tutoring at JPMS. Questions? Please contact Matt Zehrer.
How to Earn an Honors Experience Tutoring at JPMSThe following guidelines apply to students seeking to earn an Honors Experience for their tutoring work. If you choose to work as a tutor without earning an Honors Experience, these guidelines do not apply.
- For students who began UHP prior to fall 2018: A minimum of 45 hours is required, and the experience is reported using the Semester Honors Summary Form. Completion of a Community Engaged Learning Module is strongly encouraged, but not required.
- For students who began UHP fall 2018 or later: Completion of a Community Engaged Learning Module is required to earn a non-course Honors Experience. First, students should initiate the "Community-Engaged Work" WorkflowGen process found in the Honors Reporting Center. Next, students should sign up for one of three information sessions to be held fall 2020.
