Before Summer Vacation, Please Help Tutoring Services Recruit New One-on-One Tutors!

Tutoring Services is still actively seeking more one-on-one tutors across the curriculum. As we wrap up summer quarter, please reach out to any of your students who you think would excel in a job supporting others while sharing their knowledge and encourage them to apply to become tutors! Students don’t always think of themselves as “tutor material,” so encouragement from their instructors and mentors can make a very meaningful impact.

To qualify for an interview, applicants should:

• have at least a 3.5 or an instructor recommendation (forms available) in the courses to be tutored and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above.
• have a strong desire to help others’ learning processes with professionalism and patience!
• carefully fill out our application, including brief but thoughtful responses to the two questions at the end.

We do our best to provide tutors to students in ANY course offered at Shoreline Community College, from accounting to visual communications technology, so we are interested in tutors across the curriculum. Most recently, we have struggled to meet the student demand in areas such as business technology, geography, nursing, statistics, and a wide variety of 200-level STEM courses, and we know we’ll need more tutors this fall for classes from accounting to physics, manufacturing to nutrition, computer science to communication studies, and many more.

Tutoring Services welcomes and encourages both domestic and international student applicants as well as qualified non-students, and we strive to employ tutors who represent the diversity of Shoreline’s student population. There is a hiring process for all applicants, which can take time as it moves from the initial application, to an interview, to paperwork, to HR processing and activation. Qualified domestic students who are interviewed and offered a position might start three or more weeks from their date of application. Given the month+ timeline for acquiring a social security card through completing new hire paperwork, qualified international students often have a longer wait to start actively tutoring. Because of the time this hiring process takes, we are particularly interested in those who will be able to tutor more than one quarter, but we consider all qualified applicants.

Thank you for helping us recruit the next bunch of amazing tutors to join our team!
