Tutoring Services for Faculty

Referring students for tutoring

Students who seek help and access tutoring have a better chance at succeeding in their courses and achieving their goals. Some students, however, don't know when to ask for help or where to go to get it. Please notice these students and help them access the appropriate tutoring lab or center. Your extra attention can make a difference.

While an instructor's referral to tutoring is not required, instructors and counselors are encouraged to refer students to your department's tutoring lab or center for assistance in improving study skills, critical thinking skills, test taking skills, note taking skills, comprehension of course content, writing skills, reading skills, and computational skills. Note that the English Tutoring Center will tutor students in reading and writing for courses across the curriculum. Tutoring in a variety of subjects is also available through EOPS.


Recommending tutors for hiring

Faculty are often asked to assist in recruiting students from their classes and department. Please consider whether you have any students in your current classes who combine the following qualities:

  • Strong verbal, analytical, and people skills;
  • An interest in helping others;
  • The flexibility to identify and work with different learning styles;
  • Completion of courses with a grade 'B' or better;
    (this maybe in progress);
  • Interest in working as a tutor.

If you have such students, the first step in this process is to talk to the potential tutors and put them in touch with the appropriate tutoring lab, center, or division office, as each lab has a slightly different hiring process. You are also encouraged to refer potential tutors to EOPS tutoring.
