The Office of Student Tutoring does not post advertisements for student tutors. Students come to the Student Tutoring office and ask about tutoring opportunities. If it is a subject for which the college needs tutors and the student has made an A or a high B in the class, the student is interviewed and given an application packet to complete. Many times, a faculty member will recommend that a student check with the Student Tutoring office to see if tutors are needed for a particular subject. Only temporary part-time employees (non-students) are advertised through Human Resources. Regular peer tutors are recommended by Faculty, Staff or Financial Aid.
