Tell me about the tutors in the ASC. Are they good? Do they know their stuff?
HCCC’s tutoring program is accredited by the College Reading and Learning Association as a Level I program; all tutoring staff receives Level I tutor training.
There are two full-time tutors specializing in writing across the curriculum and math across the curriculum. In addition, we have an Academic Coach who provides study strategies help. Part time tutors are hired each semester to support students in math, science, business, technology, humanities, and social science courses.
All tutors have appropriate subject matter degrees for the areas in which they tutor. They also have years of teaching and tutoring experience to their credit.
To round out the ASC’s tutoring staff, peer tutors are hired each semester in various subject areas. Peer tutors are highly selected students, usually seniors, who have been referred by faculty and who have achieved at least a “B” in the courses they tutor and a minimum GPA of 3.25. Peer tutors are trained and mentored by the full time staff.
