How to become a Tutor.

All Learning Center student workers are also tutors. Due to the nature of the position, our staff members are held to higher work and behavioral standards than the average student worker.

We are looking for self-motivated, enthusiastic, intelligent people who enjoy helping others to join our staff. To be a tutor you must have/be:

  • Faculty Recommendation.
  • At least a cumulative 3.0 GPA.
  • COMPLETED the courses you wish to tutor with a B or better.
  • Responsible.
  • Punctual.
  • Adaptable.
  • Cooperative.
  • Confidential.
  • Possess good hygiene.

Tutors are approved for work study through the Financial Aid Office. To be eligible for work study, you must:

  • Be enrolled in 6 hours or more during the semester you are working.
  • Have completed the FAFSA form and have completed financial aid file (transcripts in, etc.)
  • Not be on financial aid suspension.
  • Have completed a Work Study Application and Human Resources documents.
  • Not begin working until notification has been received from Human Resources.
  • Tutors are paid $7.35 per hour.


  • Students must be rehired for their positions each semester. Being hired once does not mean you will work indefinitely for a particular department/supervisor.
  • All positions will be hired based upon budget availability.
  • Supervisors need to work within their awarded pool of hours per semester.
  • Students may not work over 19.75 hours in any given week.
  • Any supervisor who allows a student to work prior to approval from Human Resources will need to pay for that time out of their departmental budget.

Steps to Become a Tutor

  1. Open and print the online Tutor Application or stop by The Learning Center to pick one up.
  2. Complete and turn it in at The Learning Center reception desk. ***There are also Tutor Recommendation Forms included in the application. Ask a former employer, instructor, and/or someone who knows your academic and personal abilities very well to complete it. At the bottom of the form, he/she will be asked to return it to The Learning Center Director in a sealed envelope.
  3. Your application will be reviewed by The Learning Center Director.
  4. If we are in need of tutors in your area of expertise, you will be called for an interview.
  5. After the interview, you will be evaluated on your potential as a TLC tutor.
  6. If the consensus is positive, you will be asked to become a TLC tutor.
