MTC's Tutoring Program: Helping You Open Doors to Your Own Success!
Which Courses are Tutored?
Tutoring is available for most general education classes. We also try to find tutors for technology specific courses upon request. While we cannot promise to meet every tutor request, we work hard to try to do so. Our goal is to help all students be successful at MTC.
What is One-on-One Tutoring and How Do I Apply for It?
In one-on-one tutoring, you will be matched with a specific tutor with whom you can work throughout the term. Once you are matched, you and the tutor decide how often and when you will meet. Most one-on-one tutoring should occur in the SRC unless pre-approved by the Tutor Coordinator. One-on-one tutoring is especially good when you are having regular difficulty in a class.
How Do I Apply?
What are Open Tutoring Labs?
These are times when a tutor for a specific subject or course will be available to work with any MTC student who comes. You are welcome to come and stay for as little or as long as you need. You do not have to apply or pre-schedule to use these labs. The labs are great if you have only a few questions about your work. They are also good for students who like to study with others from their classes. Types of labs offered and days/times vary from term to term, so you will want to check the schedule each term to see what is available.
Guidelines for Students Using MTC’s Tutoring
To make the tutoring services you receive part of your total success at MTC, we have established the following guidelines:
How can I Become a Tutor?
MTC’s Tutoring program is always looking for qualified peer tutors.
Who is Qualified to be a Tutor?
We are looking for current MTC students who have earned A’s or B’s in classes they desire to tutor. We also prefer to hire students whom faculty recommend as tutors.
Do Tutors Receive Pay?
Yes! Tutors are considered student employees and receive an hourly wage.
Some Things to Know as You Consider Becoming a Tutor
Tutor work schedules can be very flexible (unless you agree ahead of time to conduct an Open Tutoring Lab). We understand that you are a student first and work around your classes each term. Tutoring is an excellent way to strengthen your own knowledge and academic performance. You are not required to work a minimum number of hours. Therefore if your schedule allows you to work with only one student, that's fine. The amount of hours a tutor can earn varies depending on the needs and attendance of our students. We cannot guarantee you a steady number of hours, unfortunately.
How Do I Apply to Be a Tutor?
Speak with any faculty member whom you believe would recommend you as a tutor. Ask if they would be willing to sign a recommendation form. Pick up, from the SRC, or print out, from below, a recommendation form and have the faculty member(s) sign it. Call or stop by the SRC and set up an interview with the Tutor Coordinator. Come to the appointment with a current passport or two pieces of identification: one with a picture (such as a Driver’s License) and one proving your citizenship (such as a Social Security Card). Also bring the recommendation form signed by faculty members. Know when you could be available to tutor.
If hired, you will:
Complete several employment forms for the Tutor Coordinator. Meet with the Tutor Coordinator to receive an overview of services, materials, and tutoring spaces. This meeting requires about 1 hour. Communicate with the Coordinator freely about items you need to better perform your job. Provide tutoring in the SRC unless the Coordinator approves an alternative area.
