What's happening?

Recommend a student be a tutor

Instructors, we rely heavily on your recommendations to find qualified student tutors. In fact, we require potential student hires to get an instructor recommendation.*

You can proactively fill out the recommendation form and give it to a student to bring to C201 Downtown, or to the Academic Support Center at the other campuses. The student should have passed your course (or an equivalent) with a B or better.

We also require students to fill out and turn in an Interest in Tutoring form to be considered for a tutoring position. Students can find more information on our employment page.

* Please note that your recommendation is NOT a guarantee of employment for the student, as we consider several factors when hiring.

Getting the Edge on College

Learn more about our Winning Ways Workshops on Request for students!

We offer three series of 25-minute workshops for the classroom: Academic Skills Workshops, which focus on the skills needed to be successful in any class (and in life); Writing Skills Workshops, which focus on the skills needed to write well (in any class); and Specialty Skills Workshops, which are geared toward specific courses or subjects. There is even a workshop for showing students how to use NetTutor!

Join our Scavenger Hunt

If you don't have time for a tour, please consider asking students to find us on their own. We spell out the Scavenger Hunt rules and rewards in our flyer. If you like them as is, feel free to print the PDF for your students. If you prefer to change, say, the rewards (10 extra credit points), feel free to download the Word doc and make your changes before sharing with students.
