Tutor Application and Guidelines

Academic Support Center (ASC) tutors must possess expertise in specified academic content areas and in study skills. Tutors work with students that need extra help to achieve their goal of successfully passing their classes. Tutoring is done on both a one-on-one basis as well as a drop-in approach. The tutoring sessions take place in the Academic Support Center as well as AT-301. RCTC tutors must be successful students, and must be patient, flexible, and sensitive to the specific needs of the student population we serve in ASC.
