Private Tutors Policy
Tutors who provide their services to Wheaton students on a privately contracted basis are visitors who must comply with the following special policies and procedures:
- Private tutors must be accompanied by their student tutee and register at the Circulation Desk upon arrival. Be prepared to show a valid ID to receive a visitor's pass.
- The Library has designated one space at the base of the marble staircase as our library tutoring space. It is appropriately placed to honor the need for quiet for all students and to respect the privacy of the tutee. The area is for tutors only on a "first-come, first-served" basis; if in use by someone other than a tutor and tutee, the user should be asked to relinquish the space immediately. If ADA accessibility is required, a designated ADA accessible space in the Microform Room (Periodicals Level) is available. Other space may be assigned at the discretion of Library staff.
- The tutoring space is available until 8pm Sunday - Thursday and until 3pm on Friday during the academic year, including exam period, and until the library closes during the non-academic year.
- Private tutors must observe appropriate standards of conduct while using the Library.
We appreciate your cooperation in complying with these policies and procedures.
Non-Wheaton affiliated tutors must work with Conference & Events services to establish a contract to use Wheaton facilities.
