How to Become a Tutor

Those who become tutors are often surprised to realize that they gain more from the experience than just a paycheck. In addition to drawing a salary, tutors strengthen their interpersonal and coaching skills, reinforce their academic knowledge, and gain the satisfaction of knowing that they are making a significant difference in the lives of their fellow students!

When selecting a tutor for our staff, we look for both academic and interpersonal skills. Specifically, in order to be interviewed for a tutor position you must :

  • Download, print and complete the Tutor's Application
  • Obtain an instructor recommendation for the position based on your performance in his/her class;
  • You must have earned an overall college grade point average of at least 3.0, and a GPA of 3.5 in the subject tutored;
  • You must demonstrate during your interview that you have excellent communication skills;
  • There must be enough of a demand for the subject(s) you are able to tutor to warrant having you on staff.

Once hired, we will do our best to work with you to develop a schedule that will meet your needs as well as those of the students you will be tutoring. You will also be required to complete training.  The Student Success Center is located in the Physical Sciences Building, Room 121.
