Tutoring

Our Mission

We continually seek tutors throughout the year in most programs. Feel free to submit a job application at any time.

Tutoring hires students with an 80% average and strong interpersonal skills.  Paid tutoring positions are available in most programs available on campus. Tutors work flexible hours, according to their availability and the student’s timetable. Tutors can also work towards two tutoring credentials through the College Reading and Learning Association. Tutoring is a great experience and looks good on a resume!  Previous experience is not necessary!
