Sophomore Resident tutors are Learning Center tutors who live in Percopo Hall and the New Hall and provide academic assistance to students in the halls, primarily at the sophomore level. There are six tutors in Percopo Hall and 2 in the New Hall. In addition to meeting the requirements of a Learning Center tutor, Sophomore Resident tutors must be able to work independently with a high level of confidentiality, maturity and enthusiasm. They must have a strong knowledge base in their tutoring subjects, particularly at the sophomore level.
