All employees are expected to login and check the GoogleDoc spreadsheet on a weekly basis and enter the hours reflected there into PeopleSoft timesheets. Submit timesheets in PeopleSoft and send copies to the front desk for our records. It could impact your pay if you do not do this weekly.

Professional Development

Tutor Professional Development:
Working in the English Center can be a challenging and rewarding experience. Your expertise and
patience are an important part of student success at City College. In order for us to grow our skills
and work experience, tutors are required to participate in professional development each academic
semester. These modules are meant to be timely, interesting, and completely relevant to the work we
do in the English Center and in education overall.

Invitation
You are invited to develop your own professional development modules. Please talk to me about your
ideas, and let’s put them into action!

This website is our professional development home. Please refer to your current semester to find the
most current information and requirements.
